Photoshop: For Web Designer Founded in September 2006, Smashing Magazine delivers useful and
innovative information to Web designers and developers. Smashing
The magazine is a well-respected international online publication for
professional Web designers and developers. Our main goal is to support
the Web design community with useful and valuable articles and resources,
written and created by experienced designers and developers. When it comes to designing in Photoshop, there is a myriad of ways one could use to achieve a certain result. Designers use techniques they are
most confident as well as comfortable with, which is great because it’s
always useful to peek into the workflow of our colleagues and learn new
design approaches. Creating great artwork without intimately knowing your
tools is certainly possible, but the more you know, the more likely you are
to work faster and with greater confidence.
