Latest update: August 24th, 2009 (10:31 P.M. [-5 GMT]) My present from me to you guys, like I promised! It's not even complete, but I thought I'd go ahead and get this much out here. I'm sorry with the lack of advanced tutorials in both the GIMP and Photoshop sections, they're very difficult to find. I will definitely be cleaning this up very soon, I'm sorry for the clutter. Anyhoo, I spent most of my non-academic hours on this, so please enjoy it. I want to point out that almost (90%+) any Photoshop tutorial can be used for GIMP (and vice versa). I have included both a Photoshop and GIMP sections for the sake of convenience, however. ** Double asterisks mean that the links enclosed within these boundaries go together. Please PM me for the following reasons: Invalid link. Tutorial, tutorials, tutorials. If you have a suggestion, show it to me through PM, and I'll decide whether it's worthy of being in the list. Misleading tutorial. Grammar fixation (typos, spelling mistakes, etc.) Difficulty of tutorial suggestion (perhaps I put a beginner's tut in the intermediate section, shoot me a PM and we can discuss it).
