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

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.

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

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.

The success of open source code is perhaps the only thing in the computer field that hasn’t surprised me during the past several decades. But it still hasn’t reached its full potential; I believe that open-source programs will begin to be completely dominant as the economy moves more and more from products towards services, and as more and more volunteers arise to improve the code.

For example, open-source code can produce thousands of binaries, tuned perfectly to the configurations of individual users, whereas commercial software usually will exist in only a few versions. A generic binary executable file must include things like inefficient “sync” instructions that are totally inappropriate for many installations; such wastage goes away when the source code is highly configurable. This should be a huge win for open source.

Yet I think that a few programs, such as Adobe Photoshop, will always be superior to competitors like the Gimp—for some reason, I really don’t know why! I’m quite willing to pay good money for really good software, if I believe that it has been produced by the best programmers.

Remember, though, that my opinion on economic questions is highly suspect, since I’m just an educator and scientist. I understand almost nothing about the marketplace.

mobile device manufacturers are trying to advertise their products as means of creativity. not only means of consumption. which is also good, because it’s about us. we want to be creative, not only consume.

i would like to say, let’s not forget, that we have amazing tool for creative work, right under ours very nose, but it becomes more and more neglected.

it is banal desktop personal computer.

it has terrific operating systems, well developed, toolkits and frameworks for writing software, diverse tools for creative work - photoshop and gimp, inkscape and illustrator, maya and blender, different cad systems for architects and engineers, cool software to create movies and animations.

btw, it’s symptomatic, that gtk toolkit was created in order to write gimp. (: because if you have such cool programs it means you have cool tools to write them.

on the contrary on mobile we have tools like instagram and picsart (btw, latter is developed in armenia, some of my friends work there, it’s founded by my former chief), and those tools are more like toys, too primitive.

and when you have only mobile device you have much more limited possibilities to learn, to go deeper, if you are curious. if you use windows, you can discover cmd, regedit, download real visual studio, use real professional tools like adobe illustrator, even when pirated. on mobile you cannot have such tools. you cannot make creative work which demands more tools, more efforts, and more knowledge, more personal development. that’s why i liked my n810 with maemo, it was basically hildon over debian, and when you have debian, it means whole gnu/linux world in your hands, you have tools, you can go deeper, do and learn a lot.

so this all beauty - development frameworks, toolkits, creative and professional tools, it’s all now neglected by the society which is amazed with mobile so called apps.
