PHOTOSHOP MADNESS is where you practically go mad trying to find the most useful stuff for Photoshop! You can believe we went totally mad when we got caught in a stalker site, supposedly of "great Photoshop downloads" and couldn't get out! The only thing we could do was shut down the computer -- which lost a bunch of work on this month's column. Sheesh.
We did find these Adobe Photoshop items for the 2012 Holiday Photoshop Madness surf . . .
* Create Christmas Greeting Card with CS6
* Photo to aquarel painting tutorial
* A Simple Christmas Star tutorial
* Amazing Christmas Card
* Some Christmas Dock Icons
* A Merry Christmas Tree
... and more! C'mon in ... November 28, 2012
