  1. This is an *excellent* tutorial. I’m experienced in Photoshop, but a novice (at best) when it comes to photo manipulation at this level. The steps to this tutorial were baby-easy to follow, and my resulting work was nearly identical to the tutorial’s. Even at individual steps, my canvas matched the photos. Not once did I have to start doing additional work to reach the same point as the tutorial. That’s so rare!

    This is really the only in-depth tutorial I’ve followed that doesn’t assume fore-knowledge, shows all the necessary elements, doesn’t skip details, and thoroughly explains steps and processes without over-elaborating. And all that without asking me to pay for stock! Fantastic!

    Thank you for such a detailed and well-built tutorial, I’m on my way to see what else you’ve got.
