A selection of 2012's finest Photoshop Photo Manipulation tutorials from around the web.

Each and every designer is pleasantly surprised to see how creative tutorial makers can be, trying to get inspiration from at least one of them, when the schedule allows it. Tutorials are among the most complicated posts, requiring both talent and writing skills. Moreover, there is a never-ending dilemma – by creating a very long tutorial, there will be people who will consider it to be too detailed and will give up on reading it or watching it because of its length; on the other hand, a short one will seem to be created by an amateur and surely there will be some information missed.

Anyway, I am grateful to all who have tried to offer their secrets, even if there were small inadvertences or certain explanations were missing. This post contains some of the best photo manipulation tutorials released this year, so I cannot be sure whether you have seem them or not. The order is totally random and all are well explained; this is why the quality of the final project is above the standard. I hope to enjoy all of them and don’t forget to share your preferences with us!
