Photomanip Tutorials that You're Never Shown..Breaking the Mould..Photomanip Tutorials that You're Never Shown..1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There's a butt-load of Photoshop Tutorial sites out there, covering how-to's on a wide range of software techniques.. How many of them get into the nitty gritty of fine-art though? Photoshop is a great tool, but it's just that - a tool. With SurrealPSD we want to go beyond the software, and use fine-art techniques from natural media in the creation of better art.
Some of the topics we enjoy include Lighting, Scale, Composition, Depth of Field, Colour Theory and more. We've just undergone a huge overhaul of our category system, so for your convenience - here's a lineup of our tutorials and articles:
• Photoshop Basics Tutorials
Tutorials covering the basics of Photoshop including Layers, Layer Masks, Adjustment Layers, Compositing Tools and more.

IMPORTANT: Submission changesWelcome to Photomanip 101!IMPORTANT: Submission changes1 month ago in Personal More Like This
The purpose of our group is to help one another learn to be better photomanipulators. The idea is that, no matter how good we are, we can always improve! To that end, we offer mentorship, critique, ways to get involved, and a lot more.
To prevent our group from being a "dump and run" group where anyone can submit manipulations just to get exposure with no attention to learning anything, we are implementing some changes in how you submit.
What are the changes?
Effective immediately, you must do something before you can submit. You have your choice of ONE of four things you can do:
1. You can ask a question on our Question and Answer Journal.
2. You can answer someone else's question on Question and Answer Journal.
3. You can leave a tip about how you do your art on the Tips Journal.
4. You can critique one of the wo
Precut Stock Providers who Name their SourcesEven if most of the precut stock providers are sincere, and only use their own resources... they don't often tell it! So, it is very hard to know who makes abusive precut stock pictures or not.Precut Stock Providers who Name their Sources3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to encourage every stock provider to name his sources (even if they are his own).
You'll find here the precut stock providers I found who always name their sources, as you can see they are not very numerous. I hope that every photomapulators will find it useful and that many other precut stock providers will join the move.
I'm sad to see that many of the best precut stock providers I know and who offer they own stock didn't take the time to TELL IT! So, alas, they will not be selected in this list. I hope they'll do in the future and the list will grow.

PhotoManipulation, a guide to improve your gameSO I HERD YOU LYK PHOTOMANIPULATIONZSHPhotoManipulation, a guide to improve your game3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I spent some time today looking through the new submissions in the PhotoManipulation galleries. I done this in order to gauge what the 'average' user is submitting, and what themes are interesting people.
The majority of submissions were by new practitioners, and what they lacked in technical skill, they more than made up for in imagination! Ive been introduced to a whole new world of eight-breasted animal hybrid women and other exotic curiosities!
With those funky considerations aside, what I have assembled here is some pointers that will assist new PhotoManipulators in their journey of self-improvement. Some of the points here may even be helpful to intermediate manipulators, hopefully there will be something here for everyone.
IMAGE RESOLUTION / CLARITY
The use of lo-quality / lo-res source images is an issue that affects many of the submissions in the PM gallery. Many Deviants may say <em>
