  1. end product looks great, but it's a very difficult tut to follow and after downloading the psd file have noticed that there is a fair bit in there that isn't even mentioned in the above. A lot of it is very confusing ... and I have been using photoshop for a very long time.

    1. Yeah I too admit with above saying. It is like you are hiding things. You know some things are filled bye me by my like common sense this should be like this. So Please this project was awesome it conducted more easily

    2. I agree. Since I have a lot of experience with Photoshop, I was able to do this. There could be more detailed instructions, however.

  2. I got lost when you arrive to those gradient layers it doesn't seem to do
    nothing on the overall maybe it is ''over doing'' to get the same results. I have to redo it because I don't see how I will be able to bring it back the right way.

  3. Nice tut and all but you need to explain more in details in some specific areas especially for people who has NEVER used Photoshop before.

  4. Nice tut and all but you need to explain more in detail for some specific areas in your steps especially for people who has NEVER used Photoshop before.

  5. Thanks a lot! My cousin has a photo studio, and he always finds a creativity. yesterday i sent this tutorial's link to them, and today he called me and said the tutorials are awesome.

    Keep it good work!!!!

  6. I would love to do this one, but the links are HORRIBLE. When you click on them they don't go to the specific pic. If you suck it up and decide to dig around and find them, you have no idea what you are looking for because there isn't even an example pic for each link. I've had the tabs open since the original post above, but can't do anything with it because it's an impossible task.

  7. This tutorial is atrocious. The steps are simple enough, but so poorly written that many of them do not make sense. It's often very unclear which tool or layer or effect the user is working with. Can't believe I wasted so many hours on this.

    1. Hey, I was stuck as well, but the adjustments are the ones that are next to properties just below colour and swatches

      Hope that helps

  8. Hey everyone I`m stuck on Step 16! I`ve selected the stone BUT what is meant with the selection or how do I set up the shown adjustments? It would be very kind of you if someone could help me with a hint! I know I`m a sort of a ps-n00b, but everyone is at some point a bl00dy beginner.

    Best regards
