16 Photoshop tutorials to make you a better designer

Last week we posted 30 Breathtaking Photoshop Masterpieces, the post was received very well, how could it not – the work is amazing. Around the web there are thousands of tutorials all over the place. Inspiredology has never really jumped into the tutorial lists, but we thought we would compile some fantastic tutorials here, that we are sure will make you a better designer. They aren’t necessarily using design fundamentals, but each tutorial will challenge you to be creative and learn some interesting effects. Tutorials are great, but if you can bend the tutorial and create your own design – you will be much happier with your final design.
