In the Tutorial Treasury, you will find tutorials geared towards Photomanipulators and some that will deal with a broader subjects, such as lighting, colour etc. The tutorials will be from dA as well as from all over the web and in each episode, there will be 3 to 6 tutorials for your reading pleasure (any more than that I guess no one will have time to read anyway). If you find any good ones, shoot me a note so I can include them in the next installment!

The Tutorials

Photoshop-rose-text-1 by kuschelirmel
Create realistic rose text using some simple layer styles and custom made brushes. This Photoshop rose text will not be completly made from scratch, we'll have to use a beautiful Rose PNG stock image. A nature inspired text effect can be used in so many creative ways, to decorate your scrapbook for example.

Beautiful compilation, thank you! I've been using Photoshop for years now, but I'm still learning because it's bloody impossible to know every trick and technique ever, so feel free to point all the nay-sayers who say this stuff is too basic to my comment :)
kuschelirmel's avatar
haha, yeah I think that one guy was just miffed that he couldn't get a tut for his needs without searching for it himself, just ignore him ;) I'm glad these articles help :aww:

Audranasa's avatar
too basic imo. everyone on dA should be able to do at least that much. id prefer collection for more advanced users someday later x]
Amarie-Veneanar's avatar
Not everyone is, as these two forum threads show: [link] and [link] ;-)
Audranasa's avatar
eh, well my pov on this was... dA is full of intermediate and beginner tuts, one just literally needs to use search option >_< as for something utter mindblowing, just few strips o_O
kuschelirmel's avatar
oh so everyone comes to dA after they've reached a certain level? Well that would be news to me. (You do realize that that makes you sound quite arrogant, don't you?)

If you already know about those techniques, maybe check out the older installments of the series. I try to mix things up. Or maybe actually read the tutorials (not just the abstracts), often they include some tips and tricks that are not obvious at first glance.

OR someone could take it less serious and make ultra hard epic nearly-impossible-to-do tut collection to take everyones breath away! x]
kuschelirmel's avatar
maybe xou could go right ahead and do that :aww:
