The Best Photoshop Blogs with Tutorials & Resources

image

Learning Photoshop, or anything really, all by yourself is an admirable quest. But eventually, everyone needs to seek out an outside resource like an educational blog in order to advance their knowledge and learn from experts.

In this blog, we’re going to cover some of our favorite Photoshop blogs where you can get awesome tutorials and resources. Cover photo by: Matt Moloney

Best Blogs to Learn Photoshop

1. FilterGrade - Our Personal Favorite Blog ;)

Of course, we have to mention ourselves! Here on FilterGrade, we cover a lot of topics related to photography and editing. Our selection of Photoshop tutorials and guides cover a lot of ground from individual effects tutorials to general usage guidelines. We take a photography-centric approach to our education, but that doesn’t mean we don’t appeal to graphic designers and general users as well. Our team of writers is made up of Adobe Creative Cloud experts who have used this software for years and known the ins and outs as good as anyone. We also have a ton of freebies as well as purchasable Photoshop actions to accelerate your design. Finally, we also have a YouTube channel where we have turned some of our written tutorials into video guides.

2. Design Crowd - Best Blogs for Design Education

Design Crowd, formerly Worth1000, has a great blog about design. It’s not necessarily focused on Photoshop, but rather design in general. Their blogs are fantastic for anyone trying to get into using Photoshop or any other design program. There is a lot of inspiration in terms of logo design. Whether its gyms, rock bands, or tattoo shop logos, Design Crowd has an article worth of inspiration for you! We would love it if they had more tutorials rather than just inspiration, but sometimes inspiration can be as critical to using Photoshop as anything else.

3. Tutsplus - Best Photoshop Blogs for Actions

Tutsplus by Envato provides a lot of great effects tutorials, freebies, and lists of additional resources. These tutorials tend to be specific effects that are a lot of fun to create and can really a design special if used right. Their massive backlog of content will keep you busy for a long time. They have a major focus on Photoshop actions, which can help to accelerate your workflow by automating certain tasks. Many of their specific effects include accompanying videos so you can follow along easier.

4. Photoshop Tutorials - Best Blogs for Photo Manipulation

If it has “Photoshop tutorials” in the name, it must be good, right? That is definitely the case with this blog, as it provides a lot of hyper-specific photo manipulation and compositing tutorials that will leave you with useful lessons. Sure, maybe you don’t need to create an image of a secret temple above the clouds, but you’ll still be able to learn a lot about compositing multiple items, color correcting a scene, and masking objects. While some websites focus more on logos or typography, this blog shows the true extent of Photoshop’s tools to reimagine existing images. Their tutorials are packed with detail and are easy to follow.

5. Adobe - Best Photoshop Tutorials for Beginners

Adobe themselves have their own set of Photoshop tutorials that you will find useful. While it’s not quite a blog you can subscribe to, this is a necessity for all Photoshop users. Most of the tutorials are easy-to-follow videos, but often have text transcripts. Their beginner tutorials are perfect for learning the basics or learning a brand new feature. Their more advanced tutorials are handled by partners. These partners are designers and experts entrusted to create tutorials for the community. While learning from third-party sites may give you insight into more advanced effects, getting information straight from the source is absolutely necessary for learning the fundamentals!

6. The Photoshop Subreddit - The Best Place to Ask Questions

You won’t find too many direct tutorials on the Photoshop subreddit, but you will find a lot of great questions, and the opportunity to ask your own of the community. There is also a weekly thread for showcasing your work and getting critiques from fellow designers. The sense of community and constructive feedback is sure to make you a better designer. Even if you’re following tutorials or expert blogs, it’s hard to know if what you’re doing is good or not. Just be open and willing to learn, and take recognize that everyone will have a different opinion.

7. Photoshop Cafe - Best Photoshop Blogs for Practical Skills

Read here

8. Hubspot’s “How to Use Photoshop” - A One-Stop Source for Beginners

It also has a place to download an even more in-depth guide called The Marketer’s Guide to Photoshop. Hubspot does have a lot of well-written articles about Photoshop and how to use it for many of the things a marketer may use Photoshop for.

9. Vandelay Design - Best Roundup Lists

Read here

Vandelay Design is dedicated to providing design education to everyone, and does a great job with their blog. They cover more than just Photoshop but have an extensive catalog of Photoshop content. While there are plenty of tutorials, they also have roundup posts of tutorials dedicated to specific effects, so you can find exactly what you’re looking for without having to hunt around. Sometimes these roundup posts gather tutorials that would be buried underneath search results otherwise, and you’ll probably find a diamond in the rough.

10. Julieanna Kost’s Adobe Blog - Perfect for Intermediate Designers

julieanna kost’s photoshop blog

Read here

Adobe has a lot of approved bloggers that create content on their website. There are many great ones to choose from, and one standout is Julieanna Kost. Her Photoshop posts cover how to use useful tools and how to make your workflow more efficient. This is probably ideal for intermediate users, who know the basics and are aware of some more specific or advanced features but haven’t tried them out yet. Many of Julieanna’s posts are actually video tutorials, so settle in for both some reading and listening.


Everything you need to become a Photoshop expert is out there on these blogs and more. From the absolute basics to advanced and specific tutorials, there is a huge wealth of knowledge you can find. The key is practice! Even if you see a tutorial that doesn’t catch your interest, it will be worth trying it out just so you can potentially learn new skills.

109-Year-Old Rode’s Camera Shop Burned Down in Kenosha

image

Rode’s Camera Shop, a 109-year-old camera store, burned down last week during rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, sparked by the shooting of 29-year-old African-American man Jacob Blake by a police officer.

The store first opened in 1911 and became a fixture in the community for over a century as a place to buy camera gear and get photos processed in the lab. The business was owned by the Rode family until eight years ago when it was purchased by business partners Paul Willette and Tom Gram. Gram had worked at the store for 41 years prior to taking over.

“This was just a building, but people’s memories were inside. That’s what is killing me,” Willette tells Kenosha News. “A woman had just come in Monday and brought in a photo of her grandparents in elementary school, wanting it to be restored. I left it on my desk. Now it’s all gone. Our customers lost family memories.”

As camera sales shrunk in recent years, the store was able to stay in business thanks to its photo lab and services.

“We didn’t make a ton of money doing this, but we loved it. We loved our customers,” Willette continues.

“We understand the protests, but why destroy these businesses?” Gram tells Kenosha News.

Rode’s Camera Shop in Kenosha, WI was in operation since 1911. Burned down and destroyed last week. But don’t worry, now Amazon can just provide camera equipment to Kenosha residents instead. Nice going rioters

President Donald Trump visited the burned-down camera store on Tuesday during his tour of Kenosha.

The camera store is also at the center of new controversy today related to the role it played in Trump’s tour. It was reported that the co-owners had declined President Trump’s request to be part of the visit and photo op.

“I think everything he does turns into a circus and I just didn’t want to be involved in it,” Gram tells WTMJ.

“I said no, thank you — I didn’t want anything to do with President Trump,” Willette tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “If it were any other president I would, but not this one. I can’t begin to describe my frustration with him. I politely declined coming down there. I didn’t want to be part of that fiasco.”

After Gram declined, President Trump brought in former owner John Rode III (seen in the official White House photos above). Rode still owns the property, but the president is being accused of being deceptive by introducing Rode as “owner of Rode’s Camera Shop” and referring to it as Rode’s store.

“I just appreciate President Trump coming today; everybody here does,” Rode told reporters gathered at the building. “We’re so thankful that we got the federal troops in to help because once they got here, things did calm down quite a bit. And our city police and sheriff and fire departments are awesome. They worked harder than you can believe, 24/7.”

Gram tells WTMJ that he’s disappointed that Rode’s views were presented as those of current ownership.

“I think he needs to bring this country together rather than divide it,” Gram says. “I think there’s a lot of good people in this community and to say that only law enforcement is correct is not the message we need to hear right now.”

While Gram, 64, says he’ll probably retire earlier than he had wanted to, Willette, 50, tells Kenosha News he’ll be dusting off his resume to “find out what it’s like to look for a job in this economy.”

The duo is also hoping to perhaps keep the photography service side of their business going, but the century-old Rode’s (as the community knew it) is likely gone for good.

Elsa Dorfman, Giant Polaroid Camera Photographer, Dies at 83

image

Elsa Dorfman, the portrait photographer best known for using one of the few giant Polaroid 20×24-inch cameras in existence, has died. She was 83.

Dorfman passed away from kidney failure on May 30th at her birthplace and hometown of Cambridge, Massachusetts, where lived and worked for over half a century.

Elsa Susan Dorfman was born on April 26, 1937. After studying French literature at Tufts University and starting out her career as a fifth-grade elementary school teacher, Dorfman was introduced to photography back in 1965 by a photographer named George Cope who worked in the same educational company as her. Over the following decades, Dorfman became a prominent portrait photographer.

In 1980, Dorfman had the opportunity to shoot with the ultra-rare 200-pound Polaroid 20×24 camera, of which only six were made in the late 1970s.

“[S]he was smitten with the Polaroid’s power to render a painting-size image so rapidly that she and her subject could watch the likeness materialize together before their eyes,” the New York Times writes. “Polaroid deployed the cameras as public relations tools, often reserving them for famous photographers. But Ms. Dorfman pursued the company so relentlessly (‘I nagged them and I nagged them’) that it finally agreed to let her lease one for herself.”

That’s how Dorfman ended up with one of the six cameras for her private commercial use, and she spent the next three decades capturing 2-foot-tall portraits of all kinds of subjects, including famous individuals. Each portrait shoot cost clients $15,000 pre-tax.

Impressively, Dorfman would operate the behemoth of a camera by herself.

“She ran this camera alone for 30 years, which is kind of insane,” Nafis Azad, the former director of 20×24 Studio, tells the NY Times. “Typically, two or three people run one of these things.”

When Polaroid went bankrupt in 2008, Dorfman stockpiled a year of film and convinced a friend to purchase 550 cases of it – the entire supply in existence. At the time of her retirement in 2015, Dorfman revealed that she had about half that supply left.

In 2016, Errol Morris released a documentary on her work titled The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman ’s Portrait Photography.

Dorfman’s work is now found in collections around the world, including at the National Portrait Gallery, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Harvard Art Museums.

She is survived by her husband Harry Silverglate, son, two sisters, and two grandchildren.
