Tutorial reviews are proving to be a taxing experience

As you know, one of the things I love to do on my blog is tutorial reviews of Adobe products, mostly using Photoshop but I plan to venture out into other areas as well including Illustrator and Adobe After Effects (assuming I can find tutorials that work).

Well, I had two tutorial reviews all lined up to do, and I spent so much time trying to find assets for these particular tutorials that I ended up not doing anything at all. I was extremely frustrated, to say the least. The reason why this process is so frustrating is because a lot of the tutorials I choose are older tutorials where the assets used to make the end product are no longer available. This makes it a much more taxing experience and particularly time consuming which is the most annoying part. Trying to find matching images that will look as good in the end result is much more difficult than you would think, and when you finally do find the right image, you can’t use it for free, you have to pay for it.

So for now, my edits will have to do until I can find a tutorial I can actually review on the Adobe site or via Design Tuts.

Here’s a quick edit I did of Kylo Ren from The Last Jedi taken from the Topps trading card Chrome Edition – you would be amazed at how beautiful some of the Topps cards are, although this one I’m pretty sure is just a screenshot of Adam Driver from the film
