Sharing: Tutorials

Ran across a few tutorials I figured I’d share here….

How to cut out an alpha sheet HERE – I know as designers we are all guilty of doing alpha sheets instead of the individual letters…but it’s so much easier! ;-)  This little tutorial will show you how to cut out alphas quickly and easily for your layouts.

Making a color swatch HERE – a nice little tutorial to do your own color swatches from photos.  Now, if you’d rather work from a template, The Coffee Shop Blog has some free color swatch templates HERE.

Drop Shadow VS. Inner Shadow HERE – just a little basic tutorial but it shows you the difference in these two types of shadows you can apply in Photoshop.

Traci Reed video tutorials HERE – she’s got TONS of free tutorials here, lots of good info!  Probably one of my favorites is the realistic text/paint/stamps tutorial HERE

Another favorite is this shadow tutorial by Megan Turnidge HERE – plus there’s a free shadow styles download!

This is more of a freebie than a tutorial but it’s a really nice layered .psd wood texture template HERE

*Hope some of these helped you guys.  Feel free to link up to some of your favorite tutorials in the comments :)
