Training through Online Tutorials

Postby nannybear » Mon Jul 30, 2007 2:33 pm

Not that most of you guys need it but I thought I would share a site that I found when I ran into "Pantone" this weekend. Can you tell I am a newbie to this world of printing press's? My sister was having a banner made for when she goes to trade shows and the seller told her to ask the designer who did her business cards what her Pantone # was. To which I of course replied "HUH". My brother told me that if I was going to pass myself off as a graphic designer I better get on it and figure that one out. Boy did I learn a ton of stuff this weekend. Anyway, here is the site. I thought the price was reasonable and I can "CamstudioPro" the ones I want to see again for reference.

It has one tutorial specifically all about Prepress and I learned huge amounts. Specifically why business cards don't come out the exact color I thought they were when I send them to a printer. It was awesome!

Hi gang,
I like using the Hayes Island Effect, in my real estate shows. It is a photoshop procedure that creates a story book style drawing from your photos. The tutorial costs three or four bucks, and is downloadable. Check it out at http://www.davrodigital.co.uk/tutorials ... island.htm I really like using it as a transition from story book, to real life. I also recommend Smartflix for anyone looking to rent first class tutorials. www.smartflix.com.
Regards
Bill Harden
BTW
Davrodigital also has a very nice tutorial for those learning Proshow Gold.

I recently bought one of the Adobe CS3 packages and Lynda.com was offered as a one month freebie. Well after wathching just a few titles, I was hooked. There are a lot of very good, brand new tutorials on Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver, you name it. Jan is so right. Check out Lynda.com.
Regards
Billy :P

Hi Billy

Thanks so much for sharing with us the davrodigital website. There's great stuff there and I thought the pricing was good too. I love the Hayes Island Effect and know it could be an nice effect in shows. I also found the smartflix site interesting, I'll spend some time browsing that one sometime :)
