10 Photoshop resources

There’s a great list of 10 Photoshop resources available here.

I don’t want to steal all his thunder so I’ll just include 5 and then add my own.

1. The Photoshop CS6 Launch Center from Scott Kelby/NAPP

2. Understanding Photoshop from Richard Harrington

3. The Adobe Creative Suite Podcast from Terry White

4. Photoshop Killer Tips with Mat Kloskowski

5. Photoshop for Digital Photographers

Make sure you read the rest here. (#6 used to be my favorite until I took the plunge and tried the paid sites…)

More resources.

11. Image     lynda.com  Its the best $25 / mo I can imagine if you are serious about learning any media creation software.

12. Video to Brain. They are $15/mo. While I haven’t used them I have tried thier trials. They are on par with lynda and Scott Kelby (see 1. above)  Scott Kelby ($25/mo) really excels is his training on image capture.

13. There are also free Adobe training videos that come with your CS product. If you buy the out of date CD’s. If you got them by creative cloud explained below you can get to them from you log in screen.

14. Creative Cow. Here’s a site I just found. They seem to focus on video training, with some great video tutorials on photoshop as well as other programs. They have some non-photoshop video tutorials as well.

Regarding CS Purchase

Another thing to mention about the linked blog, you can get PS CS6 from Creative Cloud. I’m one of those guys that default to paying more upfront to save money in the long run. I hate paying for warranties and am about to take the plunge and get Virgin Mobile iPhones because of the huge long term payout. Creative Cloud though is one of those deals that makes sense though if you are into video and photo editing. Try doing the math.  At $50/mo it would take 3 years to make it worth buying CS6 out right for $1800. How many upgrades would you have to pay for in 3 years? The choice was made easier for me when I realized I could get the first year for $29/mo because I owned PS CS3.
