So, I'm definitely not new to photoshop. I've tried using tutorials before, but settled for psd's, mostly because of a few things that never work for me, such as curves. I use curves all the time, but when I'm following a tutorial, and I do what it says, it always ends up wrong. Hugely wrong. I would appreciate if someone would explain to me, if they could, just so I can see how I'm doing it wrong. Also, another thing that confuses me with tutorials is gradient maps. I can never do that right; it just confuses the crap out of me. I don't even begin to pretend I know how to use it.
I'm using Photoshop CS3, by the way.
