coreyThey call Corey Barker the Photoshop Lad. I call Corey Barker the Photoshop Magician, a McGyver who can make incredible things from nothing. If Photoshop were combustible, he could light fires with it. His site, Planet Photoshop, is full of tutorials, tips, and news for Photoshop junkies. Joining NAPP with promo code “DAWN” gets you Corey’s “Adobe Photoshop CS4 Design Effects” DVD free.

Create an original piece of work based on tutorials from the site to enter monthly contests held at Planet Photoshop. The prizes are really sweet, too. In this month’s contest, for instance, the winner gets a 1-year membership to NAPP, Scott Kelby’s Photoshop CS4 Down & Dirty Tricks book, and Corey’s Adobe Photoshop CS4 Design Effects DVD.

Here’s my submission to an earlier Planet Photoshop contest (contest submission followed by the original photo). I’m a fairly creative person, but I never would have come up something like this without Corey’s Design Effects tutorial.

Corey’s directions are easy to follow and in video format, so you can watch a little at a time, and then hit pause and catch up with him in Photoshop. I can’t wait to try his latest tutorial, based on the title text from Land of the Lost.
