Preset brushes are handy, use them to add lighting and depth and enhance your focal point

Don't use a lot of brushes. Smudging and blending look a lot better.

Once we get more tips in here I'll move this with the other tutorials and sticky it.

Another tip...

Always add a border, sigs don't look complete without borders.

Here is another:


When resizing images, smaller is good, bigger is bad. Everytime you make your image bigger, photoshop needs to regenerate the missing pixels and you lose quality.

I don't have a tut but I can give an example.

Use a soft 200px round brush in white to lighten areas or black to darken areas. Play around with the settings (lighten, overlay, soft light etc) to get it to look good.
