I like to find Photoshop tutorials and plow through and create stuff I’ve never done before to keep my skills sharp (or to procrastinate from other stuff… whatever). One place that provides some top notch tutorials is http://abduzeedo.com/
Going back through my old design files from tutorials, I came across one based on replicating the bokeh effect in Photoshop. Read more about the bokeh effect here. The actual tutuorial can be found at http://abduzeedo.com/awesome-digital-bokeh-effect-photoshop
I think the result is kind of cool. Not sure where I can use this knowledge now but oh well.
As a side note, if you’d like to check out more design tutorials or other things that I like to bookmark, then I recommend you check out my Delicious account at http://delicious.com/IMMERSUSman. Delicious.com is a social bookmarking service and is awesome. They were pioneering tag based organization of web bookmarks well before the latest crop of web browsers.
