I'm posting the tutorial groups I'm a part of in LJ (livejournal for those who don't know)

- big_tutorials : tutorials for headers, wallpapers, and banners

The following are mostly coloring tutorials and not blending like the one on top:
- gimp_tutorial : tutorials only for GIMP users
- gimp_users : Questions and tutorials for GIMP
- icon_coloring : tutorials for all programs and some coloring questions asked by users
- icon_coloring : tutorials for all programas and some coloring questions asked by users
- icontutorials : This is also coloring tutorials but is not really updated but you can look back on some.
- photoshop_lover : Just photoshop tutorials

"How to.." tutorials:

- Texture Guide: Using textures in icon by ownthesunshine
- GIF icons: Making "mini movie" icons by dorkileilafan
- Text Base Icon Guide by icon_tutorial
- Cropping Images Using Calculations and Channels by Elli (this is practically making a render which is erasing the background and just leaving the subject there)

if any of the links don't work please tell that way I can take it off because sometimes members require you to be their friends or join their groups to view certain posts...anywho enjoy! will post more later as I come across them..
