1. PHOTOSHOP TUTORiALS: Ever wish you had Photoshop skills? Well.. i do. How did i learn? I did tons and tons of 'Signature Tutorials'. I kept doing them. Not many people are aware of the sophistication those little 'Sigs' require and take to make. They are jam-packed with unknown, useful, exotic techniques, tips, and a well oiled work flow.
What's great about these tutorials is they are picture illustrated. Authors take the time to show you step-by-step with 'Before' and 'After' screenshots. These are great for beginners or enthusiasts who are looking to sharpen their skills.
included are .... :

NOTE: These are handpicked tutorials that i find most useful, and show the most information with screenshot illustrations.
2. FONTS: ULTiMATE DESiGNER'S PACK This is the ultimate designer's pack, which consist of over 10,000 fonts. I highly recommend you use Suitcase Fusion 3 a Font Manager.
NOTE: No duplicates ! These are fonts i personally use and handpicked. Unlike other packs out there, each pack/font included are useful and elegant.
included are ....:
>> Finesse Fonts [2000 FONTS][VARiETY MiX] >> GoMedia Arsenal: The Ultimate Font Collection [NOT FULL][- 4] >> Gotham Family [FULL] >> M$ Branding Typeface [FULL] >> Professional Fonts [500 FULL FONT FAMILY] >> TemplateCentral [FULL] >> UFC Branding Typeface [NOT OFFiCiAL][NOT FULL] >> Ultimate Font Download [+10000 FONTS][FULL] [+] Includes a viewable catalog of all included fonts [+] Also includes a Font Viewer/Manager
3. SUiTCASE FUSiON 3 (Font Manager): You never want to install fonts directly onto your system. It will affect Photoshop, Illustrator, and the overall performance of your computer. This is why i use Suitcase among many other reasons !
Quick Highlights: - Easy to install fonts: just locate the directory and Suitcase will search each folder/file, install fonts, while ignoring non-font files. - Font Doctor: this will help repair corrupted fonts. - Preview: you can see what the fonts look like. - Auto-Activation: Suitcase will automatically activate fonts that are needed by your system. - Performance: this will greatly avoid performance problems for your PC. - Online Font Store: you can buy/rent fonts from the online store.
NOTE: I include activation instructions and the tools required.
4. DESiGN ELEMENTS: I handpicked a variety of design material/elements that i think is vital to get started and enough to last. It's a mixture of the best elements. These are items i personally use and find useful.
NOTE: No duplicates! Unlike other people who do this to increase the size of their pack. It's a pet-peeve of mine. I have downloaded 2GB Design Packs, and half of it are duplicates that the uploader hides in Sub-Directories and renames them so people don't know. Shame on those people!
The most frequent offender i have come across is: 'GADVAD' ! Stay away from his uploads.. he is a shameless "Collector's Account" whore, constantly trying to rip people off !
5. PHOTOSHOP PLUGiNS: Plugins are vital for Graphics Designers. Plugins save designers tons of time. Essentially plugins are shortcuts that do a variety of Effects, Designs, and Enhancements that usually would take hours.
These are also handpicked from my collection that i use frequently.
Many people instal plugins just to install them. But too many plugins will cause Photoshop poor performance. I am very selective.
