    Say Hello to TUTS v4Tuts 200
    When Psdtuts+ started a bit more than a year ago it was a plain jane HTML site with three tutorials on it, a brown background and a bizarre bowl of soup and spoon image. We've come along way since then and the site now has three sister sites, two plus programs, a manager, fifty thousand daily visitors and a heck of a reputation for tutorials! It's also grown a lot in content, we've bolted a lot of improvements and features, and there are more to come as the site evolves from a humble blog into a Photoshop hub. So I'm super proud to launch a new WordPress theme that we've developed for the sites beginning with Psdtuts+ today and onto NETTUTS, VECTORTUTS and AUDIOTUTS next week.Read More…
