I actually got away from using so much Photoshop with my images because like things as they are as much as possible. I do however like what we can do with imagery with the help of Photoshop. Aaron Nace who runs Phlearn on Youtube is entertaining and crazy informative with his Photoshop skills. I will run his episodes while I'm working for background inspiration and then find myself using his techniques in a job I have at the time. Just when you think you know it all, Aaron will do the episode you needed without knowing it. When people who have the knowledge you need shares it with open arms...you should give respect where respect is earned. If you always wanted to know which Youtube channels should be part of your everyday life...Phlearn should be on your radar.
Aaron has no idea who I am so if you subscribe, tell him I sent you. He'll figure it out eventually. :)
