Great Resources And Tutorials for Photographers

There are so many Photoshop and GIMP tutorials on the net for photographers that its hard to keep track of the ones that you have added to your ‘Favourites’.  I have put together a collection of these sites which in many cases have collections of their own, hopefully this will help you to keep all of these sites together!!

Always one of the best sites to find collections of tutorials (or galleries of great photo’s) is Smashing Magazine.  They have a collection of 50 Photoshop tutorials for photographers which include;

Another great article on Smashing Magazine in ’70 Beauty-Retouching Photoshop Tutorials’, featuring;

Hongkiat have a collection of over 30 tutorials which are more about manipulating photos rather than just ‘touching them up’.  Different movie poster styles, light effects and using vectors are all covered in this collection.

Smashingapps are another site that often feature great collections of both tutorials and galleries etc.  One such collection ‘50+ Truly Useful Photoshop Tutorials For Amazing Photo Effects‘ covers, amongst others, these great tutorials;

26 Professional Photoshop Retouching Tutorials‘ on Six Revisions is a great collection of tutorials which concentrate enhancing models in post processing, from skin to eyes and bust to hair, pretty much every art of the model is covered!

Basic Photo Retouching In GIMP covers many areas of the technique in one article.

I believe that advice should be free, with this in mind FPR contains over 600 photography articles covering all areas of the photography world. From wedding photography to HDR and from interviews from retailers to pro photographers. I am always interested to hear from anyone in the profession regarding new and exciting ideas and ventures and am happy to help photographers publicise their work. If you would like to discuss your photography and how FPR can help, email me at

    Woah! I really like the layout of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. Good balance between user friendliness and visual appearance. What’s the name of the template you’re using? Is it free? Thanks.
