Photoshop Tutorial Layers by jloli Photoshop Tutorial Layers by jloli
I've been wanting to make this one for a loooong time. :D And now I have.
The file I uploaded is big, but you can just right click and "save as" the full view if you don't want to wait for the download.

It covers the uber basics for photoshop noobs, plus some extra more complicated stuff. I've tried to fit in as much useful information as possible, and I hope it comes in handy for alot of beginning photoshop users. You may have to zoom in extra to read some of the screenshot stuff.

Feel free to feature this in a journal, add it to a group, save it to your computer for future reference, or translate it into a different language if you feel so inclined.

Please credit me where possible so more people can find the resource.

Also please let me know if you found it useful, need more clarification on a topic, or if there are any typos. :D Enjoy.

Thank you so much. I'm horrible at Photoshop, I'm very new to it and don't know much at all. This is a huge help and answered a lot of questions I had. Wonderfully put together.
