The Photoshop Playbook: 50 Short Video Tutorials on Fundamental Skills in Photoshop

1 Comment


Back in 2013, Adobe began posting a series of short video tutorials on YouTube called the “Photoshop Playbook.” The series has since grown to contain fifty how-to videos showing how some of the most popular and fundamental edits are done in the photo editing program.

Each of the videos is an answer to a question that Adobe hears most often from users of Photoshop — things like how to do selective focus in photos or how to quickly make fine selections of hair.

Adobe says that the fifty videos have collectively been viewed over 1.3 million times with roughly 3.2 million minutes watched. If you’re just starting out with Photoshop and would like to add to your own mental “Photoshop Playbook,” we’ve compiled the entire list of 50 helpful tutorials here. Enjoy!
