"And IF you really suck", that should say.

Clearly I know about the suck.

I tend to like psdtuts. Can be hit or miss sometimes, but there are some gems in there.

I could do this all day. (No, I don't have a social life.) Oh, and look for videos on youtube and metacafe, etc. A lot of these sites just rip each other off, but there's still lots of useful stuff out there. But seriously, if you're just starting out, go buy the Katrin Eismann books. She is bad-ass.

Ya know, every non-designer in any kind of marcom should be force to go through a few of these tutorials, so the next time they're in a production meeting about changing a design and turn to an art director to say "that will only take a couple of minutes, right?" they'll realize that NO FUCKFACE IT WILL TAKE MUCH LONGER THAN A COUPLE OF FUCKING MINUTES.

Forget Photoshop, where are the awesome tutorials for the Gimp? Some of us casual designers can't spend hundreds of dollars on Photoshop.

The answer to that, exhilaration, is that no-one does Gimp tuts because no-one uses it. They all either buy or pirate Photoshop. And when most of the decent tutorials are done by people who make money doing this kind of thing, they can aford to go out and buy it. *shrug*

But then PSElements is only about £70, so...

I just got a box of crayons and a nifty pad of paper for my birthday. Anyone know of some online tutorials...?

twsf: I know you're joking, but here's a whole blog about using crayons as an art medium.

And just to come full circle here's how to make faux crayon drawings in Photoshop.
