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 6 years, and Photoshop is one of my main tools of trade.

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.

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.
