Photoshop Tricks

Welcome to our Adobe Photoshop tutorials! 

If you're a fine artist, you may be wondering why you'd want to use Adobe Photoshop for your art. The reason is simple. . . viewing an image is never as good as seeing art in real life. The lighting, crop, and lens distortion can all distract from your art.


Luckily, our Photoshop courses for artists explain how to touch-up photos of your artwork on the computer so they look as as close as possible to your original artwork (whether you want to use Photoshop to edit images for your portfolio, website or both).


In fact, you can learn all the Photoshop basics here, including how to crop images, techniques for resizing your photos, color adjustment for scanned paintings and much, much more!

Here are all of our Photoshop tutorials, free!

One of Adobe Photoshop's best features is the ability it gives you to colorize black and white photographs. With Photoshop you can add color to the entire photo, or just "paint" one part of the image to create a focal point. Here are step by step instructions for how to use this awesome technique.
To consistently produce quality photos or fine art prints using Adobe Photoshop, you will want to become familiar with bleed and crop marks. The following tutorial will show you how to create crop marks and set up the appropriate bleed for your prints.
If you don't know how to use the pen tool in Photoshop but you want to learn, just keep reading. In the following paragraphs I'll explain how to use the pen tool to outline any type of object. (And I'm going to use this picture of two delicious looking strawberries as an example.)
Today I’ll be showing you how to color correct your artwork in Photoshop for a portfolio or uploading to the internet, by using one of my old paintings from college. (OK, so this painting may seem a little strange, but there’s a good lesson to be learned here.)
