Wow, absolutely HUGE roundup. Thanks for posting, I really enjoyed this. Also cheers for the links to PSDFAN :)

ProjectCenter March 16, 2009 at 9:16 pm

An excellent collection for me to tap into. Kudos.

Stuart Thursby March 16, 2009 at 9:32 pm

This is insane! Thank you for the sheer amount of research and preparation for something like this. Gonna be coming back to this one!

Andrew Houle March 16, 2009 at 11:52 pm

Wow! That was huge, a lot to dig through! Thanks for the inclusion.

Saurabh Shah March 17, 2009 at 3:03 am

wow ! nice list man …. never seen amazing listing before …. It will be very usefull…. thanks a lot for sharing … keep it up …!

I was actually kind of disappointed in this list. First off, there aren’t 100 resources here, because many of them are the same sites. How many times are PSDTuts and SmashingMag listed? Abduzeedo? VectorTuts? etc. It’s not that they aren’t great sites, they are. But to be honest, there are so many sites that are much more useful for learning Adobe apps than PSDTuts that I can’t even begin to list them.

Ultimately, while I love all the sites you’ve mentioned (as well as this site), I’ve grown tired of seeing the same small handful of sites appear on these lists (which I’ve also grown tired of seeing). I would be impressed to see a list of 100 Adobe Resources that included NONE of the sites you’ve listed here. To me, that would be a useful list, and not one I’ve seen on every other design-related site across the Web.

i think it`s a great roundup, because even though you repeated a couple sites, you mentioned different posts and that`s great, very useful to have them all together like that, i love lists like this. Anyway here`s a few good sites for resources and freebies:
psbrushes.net
qvectors.com
vecteezy.com

Wow ! Awesome list ! Bookmarked ! Thanks.

Dainis Graveris March 18, 2009 at 11:19 am

@Jim then please create such article – and later share with us, how long it took to compile.

I appreciate this list, because even for me I always find some fresh links I haven’t seen before. And for not so active people, whole list could be outstanding resource.

Thanks! :)

JohnONolan March 18, 2009 at 11:38 am

Insane! Can’t believe you managed to create such a large and detailed collection – bookmarked + sumbled!

T-Law March 18, 2009 at 1:00 pm

Lawrence77 March 18, 2009 at 2:00 pm

Killer compilation. Would love to see InDesign links too.

Carlos Pinho March 18, 2009 at 6:44 pm

Hi,

This is real a great and big compilation. However i thought you might also integrate in the future tutorials from The Tech Labs.
