I recently added my label to the Show Us Your Label
thread and after seeing so many incredible designs, I thought that it would also be nice if people provided their workflow and/or tips they use to design their labels.
This isn't limited to just Photoshop but I figured its a tool that lots of people have access to. Anyway, I always like to learn and would like to see your process.
I figure I'll get the ball rolling with a video using Gaussian Blur. It's a tool I use often. This is just a general tip focusing on faces, but I use it quite often to soften edges on objects in my labels and when designing UI's.
