The tips and techniques explained may be outdated.
I’ve been posting written tutorials on this site for many years, with most of them now buried deep in my archives. I’ve also been thinking about extending my site to include video tutorials, so I thought why not incorporate the two and produce videos for some of my most popular guides from the past? This will hopefully give newcomers a chance to check those topics out, while also updating them with some new techniques. Follow along with my first video tutorial based on my most popular tutorial of all time; How To Create a Realistic Money Effect in Photoshop. Learn how to create a series of screen patterns then apply them to an image to create an engraved illustration effect, as seen on bank note portraits.
