Luckily for us, the internet has made countless convenient tutorials that can help you learn some unique styles in Photoshop.

Photoshop Free Tutorials Techniques

Tutorials are a great way to learn Photoshop techniques when you don’t have the time to mess around trying out filters and extensions all day. The problem I come across with lots of the tutorials online is they’re often showing extremely specific styles using perfectly selected photos.

It’s not often you get the perfect photo to use when creating something and, a lot of the time, it can be hard to apply the tutorial to your own application. That being said, there are tons of useful tutorials where you can actually learn cool photoshopping techniques that can be helpful tools to add to your Photoshop repertoire!

So without further ado, here are 8 Photoshop tutorials that you can hopefully apply to your own work! (Click on the headlines for a link to the tutorial)

Photoshop Tutorial - Liquify Tool

Liquify Tool

Photoshop’s liquify tool is like having a customisable Snapchat filter. Enhance, heighten, and animate portraits of people or animals to give them a cartoony look. The liquify tool has a lot of potential as a powerful new addition to your arsenal.

Set yourself apart with bold colours and a more illustrative visual style with vexel art. Making photos into vexel art is an easy way to make a cohesive colour pattern throughout your photos and can help make your images pop.

You’ve probably seen this technique around before and it’s fairly simple to learn! This is one of those techniques that can be applied to a bunch of different images. Instead of a face try slicing a watermelon with grapefruit insides, the possibilities are endless.

Found the perfect stock photo image but the person’s hair colour is wrong? Probably not, that’s weirdly specific, but it’s kinda neat to see yourself with different hair colour, right? This technique doesn’t only apply to hair, use it to change the colour of an object in any photo. Make the sky purple or something, go wild!
