When we talk about a professional design software then Photoshop is the name that is popping up in our minds from last two decades. The excellent tools it contains and their updates have made it the king in the market. It is a great tool or rather a bunch of tools for pro artists and customizers alike. However, when so many features are at your disposal, you would definitely need some learning.

IceFlowStudios provides a series of playlist that has almost everything you are trying to learn about Photoshop. For specific feature, dedicated playlist cover every minutest detail of that feature. There you see around 50 videos that explain basics of Photoshop that gradually move to advanced concepts.
On TutorVid, I could see variety of tutorials, starting from basics and gradually moving to advance via intermediate levels. There is a playlist called “Learn Photoshop in 60 seconds/day” (32 video tutorials of around 60 seconds), an interesting, and quick one to learn some features quickly on the go.
