5+ Photoshop Online Blog List:

1. PSD Tuts

PSD Tuts deserves to be the most popular blog to follow Photoshop learning on the web. PSD Tuts (Shortened form of Tutorials) publishes amazing walkthroughs to create awesome design and photo manipulation. The blog also publishes tutorials on creating outstanding effects on any photo.

What takes your attention is lots of screenshots that make it very easy to follow. One of the greatest advantages of this blog is you can download the source image files before you follow the steps. However, while the tutorial is completely free, you will need to pay for subscription which will allow you to download the source files.

2. Tutorial9

Tutorial9 publishes Photoshop tutorials for both beginner and advanced level users. The site does not forget to include lots and lots of screenshots that make it easier for you to follow the walkthrough. Most of the time, the tutorial contains a video tutorial which makes it easier-than-imaginable to follow the steps.

You can also download stuff from Tutorial9 for free. The site also contains tips and tutorials regarding Photography, Web designing and blogging. You should give it a try and subscribe if you are a Photoshop enthusiast.

Good-Tutorials is kind of different from the others I talked about above. While most other blogs talk about how to do things with Photoshop, Good-Tutorials talks what Photoshop is, what it is used for, what can be done with it, and lastly, how to get things done with it.

It should be a perfect choice for beginners with no knowledge of Photoshop.

4. Luxa

Lastly, a site for your interaction with Photoshop experts. Luxa claims to be a social learning site for Photoshop artists. It has lots of tutorials, design tutorials and video tutorials. You can request a video tutorial of anything you’d like to learn, and you can also share it with your friends ‘on Luxa’. Luxa can be the best interaction platform to learn Photoshop basics and then slowly move to advanced level of Photoshop use.
