I've had the CS4 Design Premium installed on my computer since it was released. I use it for work, mostly in Illustrator though, as I do a lot more print and label type work than actual graphics. I do use Photoshop once in a while though.
I've recently tried to get back into Photoshop, for graphic design as a hobby. I've played with it before, done tutorials from Lynda.com, made some simple pieces of art, so I have a good grasp of the program.
Are there any here that use Photoshop regularly? Not just for photo editing and touching up, but for full-on graphics art and development? I'm interested in seeing what others have come up with, perhaps some websites that they frequent, maybe another message board that has a friendly community and would be good to get feedback on.
Some websites I've found that are really helpful for Photoshop tutorials:
www.advancedphotoshop.co.uk I recently found this magazine for $10 US at Costco, it's a pretty awesome mag. Too bad they don't sell it at my local Costco.
www.deke.com Deke is a true Photoshop guru
What do you guys use? I want to hear from you.
And if I get what I'm working on right now looking half-way decent, I'll post it here.
