How’s things with you?
Hey if you’re a member of the N.A.P.P. (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) or you buy their official Photoshop User Magazine off the shelf this month’s issue features the Annual Top 100 Photoshop Tips…
I’ve been a member of the N.A.P.P. since the very first day I opened Photoshop (Version 7) having joined completely out of blind faith. I remember starting up Photoshop all excited about what I was going to be able to do but once it was open that excitement turning rapidly into head scratching and wondering…“What the heck?”
Well as is the usual course of action I went onto the internet, typed in something like Photoshop tutorials and up popped the N.A.P.P; signed up and a few months later made the trip on my own to Las Vegas for Photoshop World and seriously haven’t looked back since.
I’m in Photoshop User Magazine: Check out my 10 Tips

My 10 tips go from number 41 through to 50 and include:
- Colouring Highlights
- Colour Casts and Apply Image
- Edit any Layer in Adobe Camera RAW
- HDR Toning Trick
- Give your pictures a Painterly/Surreal Effect
- Creating a Merged Layer
- Quick Complementary Colours
- Matching Foreground and Background
- Dodging, Burning and Blending
- Neck Lengthening
I gotta say, contributing to the magazine that’s been with me from day 1 does feel kind of cool
If you have a copy of the magazine, have seen and tried the tips and have any questions then as always feel free to make use of the comments section but in the mean time be sure to check out the N.A.P.P.; if I hadn’t I’m convinced I’d still be removing red eye
Have a great Thursday folks and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow,
