Can someone teach me how to effectively use gradient maps? My friend said that they add that little extra oomph to imaages, but I can't seem to get it right.
Also, where would you guys suggest I find patterns or brushes? I looked at the resource page, but all but DeviantART don't have many vector-esque brushes. Same goes for fonts. Everyone here has such pretty fonts and mine all turn out so blech
Also looking for general tips on improving my signature making/photoshop skills please! Sorry if this isn't allowed
