Top 10 Photoshop Tutorials of 2008

In retrospect 2008 was a great year for Photoshop tutorials. The quality of tutorials is way up, exposure is as good as ever with the explosion of the blogosphere, and of courses the Photoshop pros have had a full year to come to terms with the new features of Adobes’ CS3.

So without further ado I present you with a list of the 11 most awe inspiring Photoshop Tutorials of the last year:


Chroma Wallpapers

My personal favourite of 2008 – mind blowingly fun!

You can also download prebuilt wallpapers from Color Charge.


Amazing Lighting

Abduzeedo is the reigning king of lighting tutorials, and this one is top of the pile


Digitally Illustrate light Streaks

More incredible lighting effects, this tutorial is simple but produces breathtaking results.


Monster Fractals

Easily the most retro tutorial I found last year. Indulge in some crazy fractal fun for the space cake generation.


Smokey Type

Smokey Type tutorials have been on the web for a long time, but Abduzeedo has produced a delightfully simple tutorial which generates stunning results.


Glassy 3D Cube

Sooner or later you’ll get asked to create a glassy 3D cube, it’s the law. Check out this classy tutorial and come prepared.


Photo Stitching

It’s the same old story – you’ve got 10 photos that you took on top of a mountain, and you want to make a panoramic out of them. Easy? It is now!


Dreamy Mist Effect

Abandon slow exposures and gruelling early morning hikes to that inaccessible waterfall. Nifty show you how to seriously glam up your nature photos.



Not strictly a 2008 tutorial, but this photostrip tutorial is so good that it has to be included in the list even though it was released in January.


Alien Water

Ahem, so the eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed this alien water Photoshop tutorial was released in 2006, but is so cool I figured it was still worth posting
