Type of articles

Photoshop Creative is a tutorial-based publication, which teaches its readers to use the software. Freelances need to be able to write informative tutorials as well as produce a high standard of artwork in Photoshop.


The magazine covers image editing, digital painting and in-depth tool guides, so freelances need to be proficient in these aspects of Photoshop. A clear, concise writing style is also essential.

How to pitch

Get in contact via email with examples of your Photoshop work. If you have an online portfolio then include a link to this.


If you haven’t heard anything from the magazine in a few days, don’t be disheartened – often deadlines mean the editorial team doesn’t have time to reply immediately. Follow up your email a couple of days later as a reminder.

What will impress

Great artistic talent, paired with a confident writing style is what we’re looking for.

What won’t impress

Potential freelances who have made no prior effort to read or research a bit about the magazine do not make a good first impression. Likewise, a group email sent out to dozens of magazine editors can be spotted a mile off.


Freelances are paid by the page. Rates are negotiated between the editor and freelance.


Photoshop Creative is an image-led title so all tutorials should be accompanied with finished artwork in a layered psd file, plus screen captures for each tutorial step.
