30 Photo Effect Photoshop Tutorials Every Designer Will Love

Few days ago I created this article 105 People Photo Manipulation Works You Will Really Marvel with amazing photo manipulation works. This time I went step further and actually tried to find tutorials teaching you how to achieve such effects! Of course, I didn’t find the same effects there, but if you look closer and really study these tutorials I showcased here, you will understand you’ll have all the skills to create such artworks! More or less techniques are the same and with little creativity you can create your own masterpiece even today!

I wish you good luck, while exploring and learning so you could spice up your own photos, impress friends and evolve your design skills! This list is a little bit shorter than other ones, but I thought I better focus on quality than quantity, because we already have many, many useless list tutorial articles around here repeating same stuff over and over again.
