If you have ANY specific questions, please let me know, I will address them in a tutorial if you like!

I got my computer back from the shop last night, so I can pump out tutorials again now. If I don't get any requests, I'll probably continue on the same path and continue talking about layers.

Was the tut clear? As a beginner, was I leaving you in the dust, or were you able to follow, even if you had to press pause for minute and find a tool or something like that?

I want these tuts to slowly take a beginner into an intermediate user, if possible, so I want to make sure I'm not glossing over something really fast, or forgetting that beginners don't know about a certain tool, step, or concept.

Glad you liked the first one!

It was very clear, since I was able to follow along, though I do need to upgrade my computer, but that neither here nor there, as far as the tutorial it was a great start. Keep going and absolutely I'll be sending questions and topics along the way. As a beginner I dont know what I should be "asking". Thanks for putting the time into this.

Absolutely! I've always been a little more technical and a little less artistic when it comes to things like Photoshop, so I 'figure' things out because I'll come up with some idea I haven't seen other people do, every once in a while.

That, and actually MAKING tutorials taught me a lot. Every time I've ever made a tutorial, it forced me to really look at what tools can do, (not just what I already knew they could do), and I learn a lot just from that.

I'm trying to decide what to do next, because there are more things you can do with layers, and all that, and I can talk more about isolating or rendering subjects from the background, tools like the content-aware fills, and so on, but honestly, I'm not sure yet what it should be about.

It looks more and more likely I'll discuss cutting or 'rendering' people and objects from backgrounds, something I touched on in the first tutorial, using the color range selections and the Magic Background Eraser.

Also, I'm thinking I might do a little more with layers, maybe go more and more advanced with them, since there's so many functions that layers serve, and many great uses besides what I showed in the first one.

Knight, are you thinking of upgrading your video card most? I just wonder what your main physical bottleneck for Photoshop is right now...CPU? RAM? Video?

Well it will be a new build all together. I have updated the video card 2 times, however the rest of the build is older than 6 years. So either way I need to upgrade to a new rig, not just for Photoshop but for the games that require upper high end processors. I truly believe the ram and cpu are contributiing to the hangups. So maybe its time to just build another PC.
