Apple inspired Photoshop Tutorials

Apple 2007wide

Apple is known for its passion to transcend mundane reality and bring about a new dimension in design and performance. Its revolutionary products such as the iPhone and the Macbook have broken the design barrier and has bridged performance and style. If there is one thing that I always adore about Apple is their flair towards constantly surprising us with innovation in style and the cheeky product design.

For years, Apple has had a huge impact on designers and graphic artists across the globe. The simplicity and sharpness of the GUI in Mac OS X strongly influenced the way new products were being presented and designed. It’s not only the design of products that makes Apple’s products different, it’s also their appearance on the Web and in print.

No other company has managed to come up with such a crisp and brilliant style of presenting its recent designs as a new breakthrough innovation that will change our lives for a long time. Apple has found an extremely effective way to deliver its message to a wide audience, and Apple’s look and feel has played a major role in shaping that way.
In this post, I present a collection of beautiful Apple-inspired Adobe Photoshop tutorials and wallpapers. I collected them not only because I am religiously in love with Apple, but more because you may find these tutorials useful
