Can anyone recommend thorough online tutorials for these programs? I learn something new everyday by hunting around but wonder if there are some better resources online that have more to offer?
One site I like to recommend for Photoshop learners is Bert Monroy's Pixel Perfect;
And of course Russell Brown has a nice collection of Photoshop tips & techniques too;
Besides those, I guess mr.google can recommend tigs of 'the other kind' such as good-tutorials;
Illustrator Techniques dot com is the most recent high quality site for your vector needs;
