Best Photoshop Tutorials For Internet Marketers??

by magentawave 16 replies
I have Photoshop CS 8.0 and wasted about 30 minutes trying to unsuccessfully add some text to a JPEG header image! I know Photoshop is way more powerful than anything I will ever want or need to do but I still need it to do the following once in awhile...

- Add text to JPEG images like headers, etc.
- Make my own headers or modify headers occasionally.
- Just any little tasks that an internet marketer needs to quickly get done that requires a little photoshop work.

Yes I could hire this stuff out but sometimes I just want to do a quick thing (like adding some freaking text to a jpeg!) and be done with it five minutes later.

I even did a search on Google for something that will teach me those basic skills and everything assumed that I already knew how to use Photoshop.

Got any suggestions?

Thanks.
Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Those are really basic skills and it's probably quite hard to find any sites on the internet
    that teach you how to do those things as most sites are teaching more advanced skills
    to achieve certain effects.

    You need to find the Text Tool in order for you to write text. I'm using Photoshop
    CS3 so it might look a bit different - but it should more or less look the same.

    Use that tool to write the text. If you really need help, go to this forum:

      I know those are totally basic skills and I know where the text tool is and still couldn't get it to work for me the way I need. It put a little black square on the image and the type would go backwards instead of forwards! Then I tried to figure out how to select the text and drag it where I want on the image, and never figured that out either!

      Maybe its the version I'm using (Photoshop CS 8) but I swear I don't think I've used a program since DOS that was as NON-intuitive as this!!
