    Very cool, I am glad there is somewhere I can learn new things by someone who is very talented at photoshop and actually knows what they are doing. Thanks!

    Nice … cool toys, especially appreciate how you clearly state pc and apple keys.

    One thing … DONT MOVE SO MUCH.
    In the video, you tend to move your layers constantly.
    Even when not forced to adjust or move them so we can see all your working layers. Its almost twitch like. At the beginning for example, you moved the girls image about 6 times before even doing anything to it.
    As well you tend to move your mouse randomly, and open menu’s your not going to use.
    To watch this type of random motion is nauseating to a viewer. We are trying to focus on every movement so we can learn the workflow, and if there are pointless random movements … we are forced to watch and follow all of them in case we need to log it as important.
    Think of it this way … your hand and brain is on the mouse, so your hand moves, your brain automatically disregards unimportant movement. As watchers, we dont have that luxury.
    You explain your actions and workflow well, and once you got busy, the random movements went away, as you had stuff to do.
    Just keep this in mind when you are talking and not doing much … keep your mouse still, and only make very purposeful, slow motions with each layer, to get it where you need it.
    If you practiced (and I can tell you do) the video this way, and found the most appropriate spot for each layer before hand, when you have 5 or 6 layers open at once, all you have to show us is one motion in the workflow, to get those layers there.

    Again, your skill is obvious, and we benefit from this stuff, but from your, and our perspective, watching it is very different from just doing it.

    Thx, and I hope you dont mind a little constructive criticism.

    The only thing I don’t like about the finished piece is that the photo/glass seems to be sitting on top of the frame instead of in it. There was a point you could have added the bevel, that made it seem more like it was properly inside of the frame.

    Hi Corey
    I am glad to see that you have increased the size of your screen. It’s much easier to follow you now.

    Hi Guru!!
    That was really cool. A normal frame can be turned out into a splendid art work!!!! that is really great. I loved the video.
    Thanks a lot for that.

    Nice!!! Keep the tutorials coming. Like an earlier commenter, I am still using CS4. As I’m sure many others have not upgraded to CS5 as well, it is helpful to see some tuts for the earlier versions. Very good job. You made this a simple, easy to follow process.
