I am taking a very cool Photoshop class. It is free and done through email (Yahoo Groups). I am very excited. They have a sister group that shares other tutorials and learning skills where I am also a member. Even though I am a complete newbie to CS3, I have been using Paint Shop Pro for ever a decade which kind of takes the edge off of the intimidation factor.
Through the sister group, a Bronzed Lettering Tutorial came through and I decided to be brave and try it. I will admit that I did it in small spurts over three days, but it is finally done and I thought I would share.
It used to be when I did tutorials for PSPx that I would do something with result: make email stationery, offer sig tags or something like that. But considering how slow I am using PS, I’m not going to offer this. Please feel free to snag it though if your name also begins with *M*. Or give it a shot yourself.
This tutorial can be found at: Bronzed Lettering. They give you the link to the free font. I’m also just noticing that one of the reasons mine didn’t come out exactly as planned is that I didn’t download the correct gradients. The link is also given at the top of the tut.
I am really enjoying learning Photoshop. I hope to be sharing a lot of my results here.
