Seven Random yet neat Adobe Photoshop tutorials

Adobe Photoshop CS4

Adobe Photoshop CS4

Thanks to Stumble Upon, I’ve managed to amass a small collection of Adobe Photo shop tutorials I’ve really thought useful, or just tutorials I’ve really loved. Without further ado, here are some of my favorites, I hope they’ll help you!

Making a Movie 100×100 icon, by Gawariel Design

“I know this icon isn’t that pretty, but all the basics of movie-making are in it.
Just remember that all the settings I used are for this specific icon only. Every setting depends on the icon you want to make. So, you wont be able to litteraly copy everything I have done to make your own movie icon, but at least you’ll get an idea on how it’s done!”

Make a Realistic planet, by dangtruong, on

“This tutorial should step you through making a simple, yet realistic-looking planet using Adobe Photoshop 7, and ONLY Adobe Photoshop 7. We’re working small here, so keep in mind that the larger you work, the harder the planet will be to create (just a bit more work as size increases).”

Out of Bounds tutorial, by agaraga: tilted reality

“OOB effects can be done with only one photo or with several images composed and you can either leave the original background as is or distort it to add a different look. Following example was done using only one photo and the background hasn’t been distorted.”

Add a misty or dreamy effect to your photos, by Nifty tutorials

“This quick tutorial will show how to add a really cool dreamy or misty effect to your photos. This tutorial works best with nature related images.”

How to create a lense baby effect in Photoshop by

“I will be the first to say right away that this technique does not exactly replicate what Lensbabies can achieve. In fact I discovered this technique without even having Lensbabies in my mind, but instead later realized there are some similarities. Anyway, lets jump into the tutorial.”

Create your own web 2.0 button, by

“Photoshop tutorials are probably one of the hottest categories in any Photoshop tutorials site and since Web 2.0 is such hot topics now, lets go about doing a simple button suitable for any Web 2.0 application of websites.”

Making a realistic star field, by

“Let’s face it: stars can be really hard to draw. I’m not talking about the singular balls of blazing gasses, though, I’m talking about the subtle and beautiful star fields that make a piece of celestial art what it is: a portrayal of space.”



  1. I can’t wait to know exactly what your talking about. One day, I will be a digital artist TOO! Thanks for posting this stuff

    Mantra posted: Sedentary Fast Forward on [site]

    • You know, four/five years ago I was in the very same boat. I used to only use Adobe Photoshop as pretty much a means to resize images–be them from my digital camera or images I drew.

      I’m still no expert and there’s a lot of functions I haven’t touched, but it was definitely scarier on the other side when I hadn’t tried it. 😮 I have faith in you and your someday! :p
