Get Inspired

Ok, so you know how to use Photoshop.  You're a master.  Now what?  It's time to get inspired is what.

The main way I get inspired is by looking at what other people have done.  I'm not only looking at the ingenuity and beauty of designs, but also the techniques used.  I see a really great grunge poster, or a great color scheme, and think, I can do that but tweak it this way or use it for this other idea I have...

Below are some great sites I use to see wonderful works done in Photoshop and get myself inspired.  Some of them are tutorial sites, others are not.

Deviant Art (Type a topic and go)
Google Search
Design Flavr

These are just a few to get you started.

Have some great sites that you go to for inspiration?  Post them in a comment below!


  1. I love to use Pinterest as inspiration...the photos and things that people post there are sometimes AMAZING!! Everyone who hasn't checked it out, should.

    1. I agree Carla, that is a great place to get inspired. Thanks for sharing!

  2. i dont mind using google for inspiration but the responces (in images anyway) are so friggin....sparatic.
    deviantart and others are much more on point.

    1. I like using DA for inspiration too. Recently I've been going through sites like iStockphoto for inspiration as well. I am guilty of using google on occasion though. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thanks for sharing! This is perfect to browse through on a dull, rainy, blah day.

  4. I really impressed to see your post. Thanks for sharing.
