You can get people who are really, really good at it. But the program is deep and complex, its impossible to know everything about it.

I've been using it for about 2 1/2 years and I've only scratched the surface of it. I don't use it Hardcore, I mostly use it to manipulate images for websites.

The good thing about Photoshop is, it doesnt matter what you want to do with it... theres probably somebody posted a tutorial online for it.

Best way to learn, I think, is to get familiar with the basic concepts and learn where everything is. That way you can at least understand what people are talking about in tutorials. Some (most) of the tutorials online assume that you have a basic knowledge of the program, like how the layers work, gradients, masking ect.
Yeah unlike some people I never learned anything about Photoshop in school and never had anyone show me anything. People here have been very helpful in getting me started though and pointing me toward tutorials and giving me tips. I appreciate it. I don't try to do anything complex really, I just have fun making sigs.

I think I might have a few e-books on Photoshop kicking about my hard drive somewhere. PM me your email and send what I can find on to you.

I haven't had a chance to read any of the stuff sent over yet. But yesterday I made this one and it's my new favorite out of the ones I have done.




EDIT: new version.

Well the poster doesn't have a due date yet as I would like more people to sign up so you have some time to get around to it.

The chuck images and the background look awesome but I can barely see the Iceman text.

Maybe you could apply a stroke to it (accessed via fx)?

You should enter mate. Got nothing to lose and you guaranteed some creds. Just think of it as making a sig, but with more real estate to play with.

Yeah I faded the Iceman text because I wanted it to be a ghost image and just barely there in the background. I wasn't big on how the text looked at first but now I'm not sure which way is better? I also moved it a little to the left because I thought it was too close to the edge. You can see the entire progression on my post above a little bit.

Maybe I can get creative with my matchmaking and get some brownie points that way? lol
