About

Despite being a fantastic design tool, Photoshop is generally considered a mere Photo editing/retouching tool by the general public. I firmly believe Photoshop is much more than this and when used well, it can create beautiful digital artworks.

My name is James Qu and I have been using Photoshop since version 5.0 (1998). I have been working as a Digital Media Manager for the past 4 years, and Photoshop is one of my main tools of trade.

In operation since 2008, PSD Vault (www.psdvault.com) is my blog that focuses on providing high quality, step-by-step Photoshop tutorials to all Photoshop lovers and hobbyists around the world.

On top of providing Photoshop tutorials, I also run regular digital art showcases, collecting graphic designer resources and freebies to give to my readers.
