Skip to comments.You Suck at Photoshop
Posted on 06/28/2008 2:16:36 PM PDT by BlazingArizona
And now for something completely different. Although this series of tutorial videos on advanced photo editing techniques started several months ago, its recent completion has led to a flurry of comment around the Internet, including an article in this week's Time magazine.
Go to the link, and the first of 10 tutorial in the series will start immediately. Each subsequent video starts right after that, about five minutes for each.
The character "Donnie Hoyle" is a creation of two Ohio comics who wanted to explain photo editing in a uniquely creative way. As "Hoyle" explains Photoshop, his increasingly disordered personal life intrudes and gets woven into the tutorials. The last tutorial ends with a SWAT raid on Donnie's house.
It's hilarious, and you will learn quite a bit about Photoshop.
Still working on my p.s. technique. bump for later
I’ve been enjoying that series for quite some time and I’ve looked forward to every new episode not only for the captivating humor and storyline but for the great technical information presented therein.
If the series is indeed over it will certainly be a tremendous loss to those of us who weren’t born with a silver mouse in our hands and appreciate the ‘here’s how you do it’ approach.
I think, however, that it was so popular that someone else will pick up on it if the original author no longer can or wants to.
It is funny.
It's so delightfully disrespectful.
Sounds like an episode of South Park!
3 Marines to do the work, one squid to dump the garbage..... elsewhere.... and 4 airmen to do the paperwork.
8 people, one day and one NCO. That's all it takes.

Self taught. :-)
They are very informative.
"I think it's kind of ironic that it's called Smart Objects and I'm teaching it to you."
Been watching this for the last few months. It s hysterical!!
Is this an Obama thread?
that guy is totally hilarious. I forwarded it to a bunch of folks!
Bump for later use.
Vampire checks don't cast a reflection and you can't photograph their reflection in a Hummer.
I was first directed to YSAP right here at FR. It was such a hoot. And my antennae went up when I noticed Donny Hoyles ring on Ebay listed the sellers address as Covington Ky, my hometown. Turns out the real Donny’s office is very close to my wifes shop. There are indeed funny, creative people outside of SF, LA, and NYC.
Nor see their shadow.
You have no idea how much! ;^)

People need to get a life!
ping for later reference
“cast a reflection” should be “cast a shadow”... The reflection is only slightly more subtle.
I sort of expected to see a Green Helmet Guy with a dead Lebanese baby in the reflection.
These are hilarious...
LOL Well, as you may guess, the tagline is personal. I grew up in a household where the Christmas wrapping paper was rolled up on the old cardboard rolls or folded and .. saved for eternity. Grocery bags, string .. anything that great aunt so and so ever touched. I'm just trying to overcome the clutter gene, you know?
mark for later
LOL! My G-Grandma, whom I was blessed to know as she lived to 100, saved every piece of string from every package: butcher, parcel, laundry , you name it. She knotted it together and made balls of it. She was born during Lincolns second term, but everyone in my family still has plenty of her string.
...and if so, where’s the birth certificate?
