I had high hopes for this tutorial having purchased a new mic. I went for the Snowball Ice USB mic and got it from Amazon. In the end I was a little disappointed with the tutorial, due to the number of takes it took to complete and some problems with the volume levels. However, hopefully the improvement in audio quality will account for something. It certainly sounds way better than the audio in tutorial #1 to my ears.
One thing I’m going to have to try to improve on is the amount of mouse crashing an banging in the tutorials. This is something I really should have sorted out before starting the recording. I have a tendency to lift the mouse when I’m using it, as I don’t have a great deal of space on my desk! I also had a nightmare with Windows Sticky keys that caused further delays and some unwelcome system audio noises. Hopefully I’ll look back and laugh at the quality of these early tutorials as I make my way through them.
In terms of content, it’s a very simple tutorial that deals with scaling images and moving them around. On the plus side these are transferable skills that are used for manipulating pretty much any type of layer based assets in Photoshop. So I’m confident that some people will find it useful.
Here it is:
