DOWNLOAD FREE PHOTOSHOP TUTORIALS
Here's a choice of 9 free Photoshop tutorials and 9 tips-sheets on various aspects of Photoshop and retouching. You can download as many as you like. These tutorials are NOT duplicates of the Gry Garness Photoshop eBooks on but can be seen as a complement to the books.
For example, the Actions tutorial here delves a little deeper than the Actions tutorial in the CS3 and CS4 Retouching book because here I have the luxury of dedicating 6 pages to it. The Raw Workflow CS3 complements the Adobe Camenra Raw converter tutorials in both the Retouching book and the Color Optimization book. The Black & White tutorials explain the basics of working digitally in monochrome, and are a must-have for those who strive to emulate the darkroom print. Although none of the tutorials here are duplicates, they are written in the same style as the full books. While we all like a freebie, I'd recommend coming back to buy the eBooks, because these books give a more comprehensive and better overview of the different Photoshop areas of interest. If you for example have issues with printing and colour fidelity in your workflow, take a look at the Color Management book. If your main interest is retouching people, the Digital Retouching book is invaluable. If Photoshop colour correction intigues and mystifies you, look no further than the Color Optimization book.
If you like the free tutorials, feel free to pass it on to others who may be interested, and make some noise on the big www. Link to this page or the homepage www.grygarness.com if you have a website or to the publisher www.eureka-publishing.com. By popular demand I have now made the free tutorials printable, but they are still copyrighted and you must seek permission from me if you are a tutor who intends to use them as course texts. The PDFs are secured against copying and alteration. I recommend using the Adobe Reader 8 for screen viewing. Happy reading!
