Welcome to the 2nd Volume:

This is the upgraded & altercated version of the PSDer!  Take your skillz to a higher level.




Hey, it's Orion Williams.  By now I'm sure that you've all got to check out the brand new PhotoshopDesign.NET

It's going to be a leading resource on the internet for quality Photoshop training (with an emphasis on design).  It's just recently been launched and already getting a few thousand visitors/day.

I'm pretty proud of it myself and will continue to add more quality content.  Thanks for helping to make it so successful!

Thanks for joining me on your journey towards better understanding of Adobe® Photoshop® & effectively applying it for graphic design. Enjoy this issue & and don't forget to pull an April Fool's Day prank on someone!

It's been a month since the PSWorld Conference in San Fran. & I'm preparing soon for my ACE exam.  I still didn't get nominated for a guru award; maybe next time...as long as one of you are nominated that'll be good enough for me if I don't make it.  Well that's it for now...until the next online episode,
