    I just had a question of what is the best way to learn photoshop and illustrator? Would it be to self learn through these tutorials, or should I take classes? I have been playing around and doing lots of different pieces of work, but I would really like to know the nuts and bolts of both programs. I would like your advice. You really have a great web site and I enjoy all these tutorials however, sometimes it becomes overwhelming.
    Thanks,
    Greg

    An excellent tutorial showing the use of gradient mesh tool and blending mode. I guess I have to say that I always wondered how it was done. Thanks!

    Great as always. As a Layers mag subscriber, I sure wish I could subscribe to these via RSS and thus watch them on my TiVo HD from the sofa.

    When I switch to “overlay” or “hardlight”. Nothing Happens!!

    OK. The answer to my question is: File>Document Color Mode>RGB
    Great Tutorial. Thanks

    The light bulb lights, using a blending mode is my answer to being able to change the color of things. Wow so logical yet totally escaped me. Thanks for sharing this.

    Is there something like Photoshop’s Blending options exist in Illustrator? Like Shadow, Bevel, Stroke and Gradients all in one box.
