Update: Tell Us How Psdtuts Has Affected Your Life: Win a Wacom Intuos 4 Medium Tablet


Update: Since we have only received a handful of submissions, we have decided to extend the submission deadline for this until Fall, 2011.

When we published our first article back in September of 2007 we had no idea how successful this site could become. In fact, we weren’t quite sure anyone would be interested in it. Since then, a lot has changed. We’ve grown from a small Photoshop blog to the largest Photoshop site on the planet. We’ve welcomed many new editors, authors, and readers to our site and have touched the lives of hundreds of thousands and possibly millions of people. Today, we would like to hear your stories. We want to know how Psdtuts has affected your life and we want you to share your story by uploading a video testimonial to our Facebook page.

I will be the first to tell you how Psdtuts has changed my life. When I left my 9 – 5 job, it gave me some much-needed income while I looked for a new position. When nothing panned out, Psdtuts gave me a part-time job assisting Sean Hodge, the previous editor, and finally, when I was promoted to editor, it allowed me to move to New York City to live with my girlfriend.

Now that I’ve told you how Psdtuts has changed my life. What’s your story? Have we helped you land a job? Have we helped you with a key project? Have we helped you make a major life change? We want to know! To encourage you to share your stories we will give one of you a free Wacom Intuos 4 Medium Tablet (via Amazon).

How to Submit

To submit, record a video testimonial explaining your story. This can be done on your webcam or camcorder. Feel free to have fun with this video - edit it, add animation, music, graphics or whatever you need to do to tell your story. Just try to keep the video between 1 – 5 minutes.

Once you’ve recorded your video, upload it to our Facebook Page. Follow the instructions below to upload your video.

How We Will Award the Tablet

After we have reviewed all the entries, we will choose our favorite from all the submissions. While we may take the quality of the video into consideration when we award the tablet, ultimately, the most important factor for judging the videos will be the story that is told. So don’t let your lack of video production skills get in the way of telling us how we've affected your lives.


  • You can only submit 1 video.
  • Avoid giving away too much personal information in your video. For example, don’t tell us your phone number or street address. We will figure all that out later on.
  • Submissions will be accepted until Fall, 2011
  • While this giveaway is open to all of our readers, Amazon may not ship to your area. If that is the case we will send you the value of the tablet via PayPal.
  • Terms are subject to change.
