Photoshop Tutorials

Every once and while I start searching for new tutorials to improve my Photoshop skills and techniques. There is a bunch of websites nowadays, offering you lots of juicy and innovative tutorials. The problem is that among these websites there’s a lot of “fill up stuff”.

If you’re like me and have like 1 858 623 bookmarks on Photoshop tutorials, guides and articles websites…. this might become a problem to keep track of.

Fear not! This is exactly why I’m writing this article. I pretend to collect the best Photoshop Tutorials since the stone age. The ones that I find more relevant, meaningful, innovative and… < Insert a nice Adjective here > … you get the picture.

So sit tight, fasten your seatbelts, grab a drink… and enjoy your reading!

14. Drag & Drop Sortable Lists with JavaScript and CSS
In Web applications I’ve seen numerous, and personally implemented a few, ways to rearrange items in a list. All of those were indirect interactions typically involving something like up/down arrows next to each item. The most heinous require server roundtrips for each modification…boo.

15. PHP components: Autosuggest
I published this simple “PHP component”, ready to use, to implement a search form with an autosuggest feature using PHP and MySQL. For all ajax beginners this is the most simple way to implement it (just with 8Kb) and the only thing you have to do is modify some parameters. Take a look at this post for all related infos.
