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

Photoshop Cafe is a fantastic collection of practical tutorials. Rather than focusing on creating specific scenes, Photoshop Cafe’s posts tackle everyday effects that you can apply to many of your designs. Whether its lighting objects, removing backgrounds from photos, or how to customize your workspace, you’ll find a skill here that you can apply to more than just one project.

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

Okay, this one is only one blog post, and not an entire blog website. But Hubspot has an excellent blog all about the basics of Photoshop and how to get started. 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. So once you’re done with this article, try searching “Photoshop” on the Hubspot blog to find even more great resources.

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

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. If you want to share your favorite Photoshop tutorial or effect in the comments below, please do, and let’s all learn together!

The point is: the colder the better. However, there are some practicality issues as well. Frozen papers last longer than refrigerated papers, but they need to be thawed before use, and well packaged to avoid moisture. That’s too cumbersome and not without danger for general and frequent use. A good compromise is refrigerator storage well above freezing. I have used papers as old as 10 years that way without ill effect other than a small loss in speed and contrast, which is easily compensated for.

Fujifilm Fujicolor C200 Film Stock Review

image

When it comes to daylight film, you can probably think of a ton of the top of your head, but what about a daylight film that is also cost-effective and extremely versatile? Fujicolor C200 should be one of the top film stocks that comes to mind. Designed as an easy-to-use film stock for all photographers shooting in daylight or indoors with flash, this film stock is the perfect way to break into film photography to learn more about daylight film while not breaking the bank! Today I’ll be going over some of the benefits and features of C200, so without any further ado, let’s get into the Fujifilm Fujicolor C200 film stock review.

Fujifilm Fujicolor C200

Like I had mentioned in the introduction, Fujicolor C200 is a color negative 35mm film stock that is created for daylight use, but also works really well indoors with flash. This film stock includes the new Super Uniform Fine Grain Technology to achieve high image quality when printing on Fujicolor photo papers. Some photographers have said that, “There’s nothing special about C200…It’s an entirely nondescript, unglamorous film that simply does the job it’s required to do – render images on film.(CasualPhotophile)” However, I disagree - I think this film is really well-made and captures daylight better than Kodak Gold 200 or Portra 160. Let’s go over some of the features and benefits and you’ll see why. (Source: Fujicolor C200)

Features

Fujicolor C200 is one of the most advanced daylight film stocks and has many features that set it apart amongst other film stocks:

Excellent Grain Quality…………………………………………….. Fine grain film, providing no loss of image quality even in large prints.

Wide Exposure Latitude……………………………………………. Stable, clear results in a wide variety of settings.

Excellent Skin Color Reproduction…………………………….. Smooth, natural skin tones for portraits.

Professional Sharpness……………………………………………… Extremely sharp depiction of all aspects of the subject, from overall form to texture details.

Benefits

Because Fujicolor 200 is a daylight film stock with fine grain it’s a really versatile film stock that you can use in almost any situation. In addition to this, many users have even said that it’s capabilities go beyond being versatile at 200 ISO. Photographers that use C200 a lot have said that for their preference, shooting C200 at box speed seemed dull and lacked color, but pushing the film speed to 400 or 800 helped create more contrast and deeper, more vivid colors.

Now, I’ve heard of pushing/pulling film before, but often times I either forget to try it, or I just haven’t shot that certain film stock enough to know what it looks like at box speed just from looking at it. This is one of those cases where I have’t shot that many rolls of Fujicolor C200, maybe only 5-10, and I’d prefer to know what the film stock is intended to look like before I try out pushing/pulling (unless I’m in a setting that requires pushing/pulling). Regardless, having a film stock that not only performs at multiple speeds, but perform really well, or even better, is absolutely incredible!

Another benefit of this film stock is that it can be processed with CN-16 of C-41 processing methods. This allows you ease-of-development as most film labs and stores still use these methods!

The last key benefit that we have for this film, and probably the most important to myself and many of you - the price. This film stock is one of the most affordable 35mm film stocks on the market, going for $3-$5 usually, which means it is a great film to start out with when you’re learning and also great for when you have a shoot where you’re going to need a lot of photos, but may not have a huge budget. Having a versatile film that’s also cheap is always fun because it helps you work around things like budget and # of photos.
