A couple of days ago, I was trying to submit the latest tutorial we made at Tutorialshock, I thought that it was going to be simple and will only take a few hours, but suddenly I found that it was not that easy. Most of tutorial directories are focused on Photoshop or programming tutorials, being less the ones that are willing to accept vector tutorials from programs such as Adobe Illustrator and Gimp.
That’s the reason why we decided to write this article, to help put people that are currently looking for high quality places to submit their vector resources, specially tutorials. We made a complete roundup around several places until we came out with this, we hope you enjoy it.
There are two different types of sites where you can send your vector tutorials. First there are the tutorials directories, which are places that features the entire tutorials and not just the links and take them as their center of attention; the second class is those websites that covers general design articles and offer the opportunity of send articles through their news area. In this countdown we will include both kinds so you can get a more open experience while you’re publishing your contents.
