One of the most wonderful things about the internet is that there are great resources tailored to every type of learning style. Some people learn best from written instructions, others do best if they can “see” how to do something. Visual learning has come a long way in the last few years, especially now that we can share so much online through sites such as youtube. Video tutorials are one of the best tools out there for learning how to digiscrap, and how to use various photo editing programs. I (Katie) have gained valuable knowledge from watching many instructional videos and I’m excited to share some of my favorites with you!
Many online scrapbooking and photography classes use video tutorials as an important teaching tool. Be sure to check out this post to find the very best resources (some of them are free!) It is also common for digital scrapbooking sites and designers to post tutorials on their websites and/or blogs. There are numerous places to find video tutorials, so we thought it would be good to create a reference post for you to bookmark and come back to whenever you feel like learning some new digiscrap tricks.
Here are some of my favorite video tutorial resources – and all of them are FREE!
Adobe TV is a website that centers around video tutorials. I have learned a lot from watching various Photoshop Elements 8 and Lightroom videos but you can find tutorials for a variety of Adobe products as well.
Ali Edwards has posted several video tutorials on her blog to help readers learn to use simple digital techniques and to demonstrate how to use digital products for both digital and traditional scrapbooking purposes. She uses Vimeo to post these tutorials and you can find all of her Vimeo videos right here.
Cathy Zielske is another blogger who has shared video tutorials on her site to help her readers gain digital and hybrid scrapbooking knowledge and skills. Cathy uses Vimeo and you can find all of her Vimeo videos here.
Debbie Hodge has created video tutorials for her own site Get It Scrapped and for the Designer Digitals blog (where she is a team member). You can find Debbie’s Get It Scrapped youtube channel here. You can find more videos from Debbie on her Blip TV page as well.
Designer Digitals has a blog where they share several video tutorials. I already mentioned the ones that Debbie Hodge posts there, but they also have a blog category that will take you to all the video tutorials they have shared from various other team members.
Now go grab a cold drink and a tasty snack, and have fun watching videos on your computer!
P.S. Do you have any favorite sites for free video tutorials? We’d love to hear about them, so link us up in the comments!
P.S.S The photobook review from yesterday has been updated with more images and information from questions sent in emails and comments that were left.
