Photoshop is fun. I never took any real classes in it, but it didn’t stop me from making art with it.  If I wanna learn something new though, it means I have to look else where to find tutorials on how to use it.  Here’s 3 places I found for finding sweet tutorials online.  Note: This blog really needs another category for putting these tutorials in:)
