Free, downloadable PSDs are the bomb; that’s a fact. I have assembled a list of 26 PSDs of various Apple products (everything except that darned Mac Pro) that I’ve found and actually downloaded and tested to ensure (at the time this article was published) that the download link works and that the files are reasonably high quality. We want the quality, sharpness, and beauty of a perfectly crafted Apple product PSD. More after the jump!

Photoshop CC 2015 Has Landed! – We, Geeks Podcast Ep. 19

We Geeks |

We’re one episode shy of the big 2-0! On this episode Howard and I spend much time talking about Canon’s apparent impenitence with regard to 4k video in their cameras. Have they lost touch with the direction the market is headed, or do they not understand their customer? E3 had a bunch of big announcements that we talk about. We also talk about the new features of Photoshop CC 2015 and what we see as the future of Photoshop. There also may be a big iPad Pro! Something that can run a full-fledged OS. We can only hope and wait to see what Apple’s next move is and what the capabilities of such a tablet-if it exists-would be.
