Some FAQ's

May I publish your tutorial(s) on my website?

NO - DEFINITELY MAY NOT! I don't mind, of course, any form of back link to Digital Photo News tutorials section, but taking any one of the tutorials whole and supplanting it on your website is theft. If you really like the tutorials and want to advertise them, why not just hyperlink directly to their URL?

Is it possible to submit some of my own tutorials?

Yes! I love to add new and original tutorials to ever-growing database! If you would like to submit a tutorial, fill in the contact form with as much detail as you can manage and we'll get back to you with details. There's no need to stick to a specific format when submitting, as we will do all the boring work for you if needed... and fully credit you as the author on your tutorial pages if your submission is accepted.

Can I request a tutorial?

Of course you can! I make no guarantees i'll be able to get around to your specific tutorial in any given timeframe, but I listen to audience, and if there is demand out there for a guide to a specific technique/effect, I'll be only too glad to offer my assistance. Just ask via the contact form.
