Plenty of Tips and Tricks for Photoshop

The marshmallow world has arrived where I live. Snow has dropped and piled. Car travel this past week was a bit like moving through a churning milk bottle,  with fluffy white snow swirling around and over the road and vehicle.

Adding insult to injury, temperatures fell to record lows, plunging us into a deep freeze where cheeks stung and nostrils stuck.

It's all enough to push you indoors before a cozy fire. Or, if you're the creative type, offer the necessary incentive to take on some new projects. For Photoshop fans, for example, the bitter cold of winter is the perfect time to practise what you know or pick up some new tricks.

Spending a lot of time in front of the computer myself these days, I have learned a little more  in recent years than I would ever have thought before about using this popular image editor.  What I have yet to master, however, will take me a lifetime.

So, given that it's absolutely no fun to be outside right now,  it's definitely the perfect time to pick up the pace a bit and learn a little more about the fun features in Photoshop.  Here are two resources I found with a wealth of tips and tricks for me to try:
