    Awesome tut bud. You always seem to get my “creativity wheels” turning. I am astounded at how you seem to be always thinking outside the box and seldom use traditional design methods on anything you create. Kudos for another great tut, many of my best designs owe you a commission!

    Right now I am in the process of learning how to create websites using both photoshop and dreamweaver. I have bought the kelby training photoshop to dreamweaver dvd and was wondering if you could recommend any similar products from kelby that may go more in depth…?

    It’s about time that you did some photo designs and got away from all the lettering and logo stuff

    Great tutorial Corey. Your ideas seem endless and your tutorials are always superb. I agree with Marino re making a tutorial about a realistic reflective glass sphere. Thanks.

    This tutorial cuts out about half way through, Just after the layer pallet is dragged out, it resets?

    this is a very helpful tutorial. However, I have a question for you. Chris Brown has a video (“I Can Transform Ya’) in which there is a mosaic effect being used. Can you inform me on how to achieve the effect that he illustrates on this link:

    Can you help me out?
