Spoonfed Photoshop Tutorials

Among the envato network sites is the PSDTUTS site, full of Adobe Photoshop tutorials, articles, and freebies (largely collections of Photoshop brushes and backgrounds). Don't ask me how I got there...let's see, it was from the Rockstar Freelancer book promo site, which was advertised on Lifehack, a site I read posts from on occasion when I'm interested in someone else's two cents! There are an amazing number of informative sites out there awaiting exploration.
