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.

Changing the color of pretty much anything
Maybe you’re looking to mix things up with your models but only have a few pictures at your disposal.
Here’s how you can switch up your models from Spanish to Swedish in no-time.
Making an animated GIF
Some placements on the TrafficJunky network allow for animation. See here for more info. While there’s nothing wrong with static images, you’ll definitely want to diversify.
Videos are nice but sometimes you just need a longform article you can enjoy in the tub. We’ve got you covered, check out Lifehacker’s comprehensive breakdown of Photoshop.
