Photoshop professional tips & tricks

Welcome to the «Photoshop Professional Tips & Tricks» page!
There are many reasons why I spent my time and created this page. Some of them are obvious — I haven't seen any page similar to this one. Most of the things described here are either published in books or are unknown to the wide public at all. Another reason for creating this page is because I'm too often asked about how I made this or that thing on my pages.

When I describe something about Photoshop I assume that you're familiar with basic computer operations and Photoshop itself. If you feel unprepared, check the program's manual — Adobe spent some time writing it and it definetely worths looking in (RTFM). It's a good manual.

Since I work on a Mac, some things are Mac-related. I hope that's not a problem for many people, because most Photoshoppers are Mac users.
