Their name says it all. Hands down, this is the best magazine ever printed for design. Available in digital & print. Digital is a wonderful teaching tool. But the magazine in either format is a must-have for any graphic designer.

Jostens Yearbook Love is produced by Jostens Creative Account managers and has lots of great idea generators, lessons and more that you can use. It is worth checking out.
Another great site that's chock full of Photoshop goodness. Tutorials, videos and more.
This is a great place to find free and paid plug-ins, extensions and scripts for all Adobe applications. Sorry, if you want to purchase one, they only take credit cards, not purchase orders.
Chuck Green's daily (or almost daily) design blog. He is one busy guy. But he is also the GURU of design. There is no better resource online for the graphic designer than his three sites.
If you need to learn just about any software in the the computing world, then lynda.com will probably have an online course you can take. Or if you want to get your staff up to speed on Photoshop or InDesign, this is the place to come.
This is a great way to exchange ideas with other yearbook advisers and their staffs around the country.
Keep constantly up-to-date with yearbook news by following Jostens Yearbooks on Twitter.
Still another great site about the world's best digital photo software. If you can't find what you are after on this one or the previous three links, it's probably not out there.
Considering the purchase of a digital camera? Before you spend a single cent, you have to see this site. It compares and contrasts just about every piece of digital photo equipment from simple point and shoot cameras to flash units to ultra-high end DSLRs.
Superb coverage of all things Adobe. A website (that used to be a magazine) that covers all Adobe applications. Tons of tutorials on Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.
If your staff is getting serious about InDesign or if you have a staffer who says they want to be a graphic designer when they graduate, this site is a must see. Consider subscribing to their digital-only magazine. But sign up for their weekly free tips as well.
Isn't that a great name? The site is exactly that--a jumping off point for any information about design. The best links page for graphic designers.
The folks at Before & After magazine decided that they needed someplace where designers could talk amongst themselves and thus the Grid was born. A great place to try out designs. You will get lots of feedback.
If you suspect your Internet connection has slowed down (or is really bad to start with) then run the SpeakEasy Speed test. Just click on the server nearest to you and wait a few seconds (or if your connection is really slow, minutes). It will tell you how fast your critical download/upload speed is. Most school servers run between 10 and 20 megabytes on downloads and 4-5 megabyte for uploads. If yours is not in those parameters, it's time to contact your tech support people.
Like your ideas in pictures? Check out Jostens Pinterest page. Pin some of their stuff to your boards.
Not so much looking for Photoshop as just digital photography help? Then check out Fred Miranda. His site is the place to meet online if you shoot a Canon. And there's lots of great non-Canon photo info as well.
Yup! Jostens is on Instagram too.
Very much like FredMiranda.com with less about Canon cameras and more focused on Nikons.
