I have always classified myself as a part-time geek, one who can do stuff, but just the basics, such as fix buggy computers and stuff. Of course, I find that among “ordinary folk” (no offence intended) I am a full-blown geek when all I can do is look stuff up online and help fix their computers. And I have been stuck with that burden ever since.
Not that I mind being called one. It’s just that I pale in comparison to what real geeks can work around with. But that doesn’t stop my from trying my hand at stuff.
Being a computer crazy guy, I have tried my hand at various different aspects of coding and stuff. For instance, I tried my hand at HTML for a while before I heard of the revolution called CSS. Then I sidetracked for a little and got hooked onto Java, which I then dropped pursuing when I got bed-ridden for a couple of months. I tried hard at Adobe Photoshop for a while and didn’t go too far either. It’s my laziness and lack of focus that is to take most of the blame.
And in that track, I have decided to dive once again into the beautiful world of Photoshopping. I felt that it might be useful if I could share some 0f the resources that I used (when I tried my hand at PS earlier) and will use now on this attempt as well.
Pixel2Life: P2L, as its fondly called, is one of the most amazing resources of tutorials I have ever seen online!! It is such a big universe of tutorials, that its a paradise for anyone who wants to learn stuff on their own.
GreyCobra: GreyCobra, is another huge gallery of tutorials, and they are now moving to Tutorial9.net and its as amazing as P2L, and is more oriented towards graphics and web design.
I know I wont be able to do justice to the tutorials community even if I write down a million links here, but the ones I have mentioned are top of my list for sure!!
Now you must be wondering as to why I take all the trouble to put this small post up. I take this as putting it down in writing so that I take it up in me to try and fulfil my objective to learn something to put my computer craze into good use. So, here I go on yet another adventure, trying to learn more and upgrade my skills on being more techno savvy
As my favorite graphic designer (and a very good online friend) often puts it,
