Photoshop Tutorials For iPhone Developers

I have to admit, I suck at art — it just takes me way too long to do anything.

I’ve always found it difficult to follow along with most of the tutorials on the different art sites, and it doesn’t help that Photoshop updates so often, and it seems with each update hundreds of new buttons are added.  It’s really something you need to see done not simply shown in a series of screenshots.

That being said I’ve found some excellent tutorial screencasts made for iPhone developers by an iPhone developer.

The tutorials are from an ongoing  series by Mike Berg, and they currently feature:

  1. App Icon Design and Resolution Independencewhich includes a template to quickly start your icon, how to use vector layers, creating icons of the right sizes, smart layers, and how to use the preview window when working on small icons.
  2. How and when to use clipping maskshow to place a photo within a special border, texturing a chess board, adding reflections, adding art to a shaped and angled surface (in this case a billboard), and creating sillhouettes for your vector art.

There are some really cool things going on in these tutorials, and it is nice to see how things are really done.  If you’re trying to get better at Photoshop I highly suggest you check these out.  I really hope Mike keeps up with the series!

Thanks for reading, if you liked this then please share it!
