Five Photoshop Video Tutorials for Beginners

You want your ads to look good right? Lucky for you the TrafficJunky team has once again put its beautiful heads together to compile five Photoshop video tutorials for beginners.

Removing the background from an image

Other tutorials will wax poetic about the ‘eraser tool’ and ‘magic wand’. They aren’t entirely wrong, those are two great tools in their own right.

Having said that, you want to be using the ‘pen’ tool. While it takes a little more time, good things come to those who wait.

Using the type tool

Your ads will need text, won’t they? While the ‘T’ icon in the toolbar is pretty self-explanatory you want to make sure you’re using it right.

Using the transform tool

The more you start creating more intricate designs, the more you’ll be manipulating and transforming layers.

There’s a slew of different options at your disposal in order to use this the right way. Nothing worse than a distorted, low-quality image.
