    An EXTREMELY easy tutorial on some of the basics of Photoshop.

    Needed:
    Program: Photoshop CS4 (any CSx should do)
    Photos: https://store1.adobe.com/images/store/product_boxshots/150x150/box_photoshop_cs4_150x150.jpg http://cache.gizmodo.com/assets/resources/2008/01/onelessdesk_12.jpg (Feel free to use your own, these are just the ones I used)
    Time: 5-10 minutes, like I said EXTREMELY easy

    Well, that's about it, I don't expect many people to actually use this, but I do highly recommend following this tutorial if you've never used Photoshop before, in which case, this is a good place to start. If anyone actually does this tutorial, please feel free to upload what you made! If you feel like expanding on this skill a little bit more, try tackling another similar task; for instance, try putting this hood ornament: http://uatparts.com/miva/graphics/00000001/UAT-9931.jpg on this car http://autocityimports.com/images/08Lancer/2008-Lancer-EvoS-Body-Kit2.jpg

    Watch for next weeks' tutorial: Animations!

    I have Photoshop CS3, but I've never really got the hang of it. Great job!

    Tutorials are always welcome but....it would be nice if it was all....here instead of having to click on links and the attached files were actualy viewable in the post as a screenshot instead of being attached and having to click.

    Just makes it better and easier if it was all right there you know?

    Thanks.
    I'll keep that in mind for my next tutorial, although I do like the style of screenshots and red text, I know what you mean.
    I have to check it out, never heard of him before.
