In this post we have scoured the web in search of the very best Photoshop tutorials all created in 2016. There’s a range of various tutorials within the post from Photo Manipulations to Text effects. A range of various tutorials, which I hope you really enjoy whether a veteran Photoshop user or just getting started with Photoshop.
In this tutorial we are going to create a 3D isometric map made from combinations of a few landscape photos. No 3D software is used in this project—we are going to use only Adobe Photoshop. The end result can be used as an icon or as part of an infographic.
Your going to have some fun mimicking the distortion effect of VHS tapes in Adobe Photoshop. This is quite an unusual topic, but hopefully it will come in handy for those rare projects where you might need to replicate such a style. We’ll take a photograph and distort it with a variety of techniques to simulate the warping associated with old analog film footage, then we’ll apply some OSD text as a finishing touch to give it the appearance of a home movie being played on a VCR.
In this tutorial, I will show you the process I used to create this Rock 3D Text Effect with Flying Fire Sparks in Photoshop. This is an intermediate level difficulty tutorial and some steps can be tricky. Have a try!
In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create a winter landscape using a variety of photo-manipulation techniques. You’ll learn how to combine different stock images together into a cohesive scene using adjustment layers, masking and brushes.

In this quick tip, you are going to create a simple Layer Style text effect, similar to the text effects that can be purchased on Envato Market. So you’ll be just using a texture, a pattern, and a couple of layer styles to create a bright, futuristic-themed text effect.
In today’s video tutorial we’re going to combine the powers of Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop to produce a trendy geometric photo collage. This style of artwork has a somewhat retro vibe and it’s the kind of art you would see on album covers or as a series of abstract poster prints. We’ll be using Illustrator for its powerful shape building tools to construct a geometric vector pattern, then we’ll transfer the artwork over to Photoshop to use the image editing tools to digitally cut and paste snippings of a photograph into a cool looking collage.
With the release of Photoshop CC 2015, we now have the ability to add multiple instances of the same layer style to a single layer. This opens the door to creating more advanced effects quickly (and more importantly, non-destructively). This works well especially with text effects. In the past, it could be cumbersome to create a simple effect such as a long shadow, which often required several steps, making it difficult to update the text on the fly. In this tutorial, I’m going to show you a quick technique to add long shadows to your text without losing the ability to edit quickly.
In this Photoshop tutorial you’re going back to the 1980s to create a rad text effect based on those 80s style chrome logos we used to see for games, movies, TV shows and more. The overall design incorporates the classic bold chrome text effect with a hot pink script font. It’s all done in Photoshop using a mix of layer styles and colour overlays to reproduce the shiny metal effects and vibrant colours.

Digital photos are amazing technology. They are superior to working with old film in a number of very real ways. But for all their digital perfection, they often lack the character of old film. Film, being a physical medium, was susceptible to the ravages of time and would show signs of wear, tear and deterioration. This often produced a very attractive effect that we just don’t get with our digital photos.
Are you scared of painting with color? Many beginners avoid working with color out of fear that they might ruin their ideas with the wrong combinations. Why you might feel this way is actually not your fault. This kind of thought process stems from traditional art because you’re often locked into the color scheme you choose. And if you want to change the colors, you’re usually out of luck.
