Photoshop Basic for Bloggers

When I was in high school, I took my first Graphic Design class. It was there that I was introduced to Photoshop and I fell in LOVE with it! Since then I have tried a lot of other design software and though many of them are good, they just don't compare in my eyes.

As bloggers, it is important to have great designs for your blog layout as well as for the images you post on your blog. Thus having software that can give you those great designs is so important! I know that Photoshop can be pricey (there is a really expensive version and a cheaper version). So if you are just starting out, there are a lot of decent options for graphic design software other than Photoshop and many of them free. But if you really want to move forward with your blog, I recommend starting with Photoshop Elements.

Now many of you may be intimidated by this program. If you have never used it before it really can be so confusing! But I have found a site that I wanted to share with everyone that offers Photoshop Basics for Bloggers. Suzie at The Accent Piece has put together 31 days days of Photoshop Basics for Bloggers. It is very basic, so if you are one of the many that are too scared to try it, check out her site!





How many of you use Photoshop?
What other software do you use?
What's your favorite?
What software do you prefer that I use in my tutorials?

    1. I don't really know. I guess professional blogging would be something you do as your career, something that you make money from. It might depend on how often you guest post.

    1. I can share tutorials for blog designs in Photoshop but I use CS4 which many of my readers do not have. I try to show tutorials in software that is accessible to more people. But if you would like a specific Photoshop tutorial please let me know and I can try to post it.

Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I would love to answer everyone's questions, but I am a busy mama. I will try my best, but technical questions that require me to study your blog's html are very time consuming for me. I may not be able to answer all of these comments. If you are a reader that knows the answer to a question, please help your fellow readers by offering your advice.
