    There are still a lot of us who have dial-up.
    This tutorial was useless.

    How about words and pictures -disjointed words are not helpful!!!

    I thought that it may just be one or two which were slow to load.
    This site has so much potential, particularly for a teacher of digital graphics!!!

    Great Tutorial. However, I am having a hard time with one aspect. When it comes to using the gradients ( ) I am only allowed to apply to either the top, left, right or bottom. One only. I am unable to use the gradient on more than one. How do you fix that? Help! I’m at a loss!

    Lee, you missed the part (about halfway through) where he selected the gradient tool as black to transparent. Not black to white.

    When you live 6.5 miles from town and it takes 20 minutes to get to town because of the narrow and twisty roads, and where the forest ceiling is so thick you can only see the stars from your gravel driveway, you are greatfulto have dial-up.

    Thanks Corey, for a novice like me your videos are easily understood and I am learning so much by following the tutorials……My children are really impressed by what I am creating….Never too old to learn new tricks….

    Great tutorial! But I have one problem, when I want to make the overlay from the gradient tool, it doesnt show the lines (Something further than the middle of the movie). Does anyone knows why this is happening?

    Lee: You are probably using a gradient that is going from black to white (or vise versa) You need to use a gradient that goes from black to transparent.

    Also make sure you have the transparency box checked to the right.

    Thank you for these tutorials. I don’t have Photoshop, I have Photoshop Elements. It takes a few adaptions to figure out how to achieve some of your steps, but it can be done. Your videos give them the basics, I just improvise….and learn things I’d never have found on my own. Much thanks.

    Great tutorial, thanks! I found an adaptation if you don’t like the pixel-y look that the “Fill” can cause in the selection step: If you use “Stroke” instead, you can thicken the lines, and fill in the spots. Hope that helps someone 🙂

    I am unable to access the video ‘photo to drawing’ located at this web address “(insert the link here)”. Is it possible to send me the video directly or to post again so I can access it?

    Thank you very much,
