Photoshop/Illustrator UI Design Tips

Hey TH folks! 1st time on the Forum.

I am looking for some resources and best practices to help me design better user interfaces for web and mobile applications using Photoshop and/or Illustrator. Dribble helps as far as inspiration, but I'm looking for some detailed information. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it!

There's . . . (http://mashable.com/2011/09/16/ui-design-resources) - which starts off with inspiration but then goes on to cover other things such as best practices, techniques, user behavior, expectations etc.

Another is . . . (http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2012/07/26/android-design-tips) - which is mobile design practises for Android.

I tend to look at various blogs and can pick up some nifty stuff, tutorials etc . . .

Hopefully you can get your hands on some video tutorials from some of the above.

Good luck,

Thanks Simon! And yes, James, tutorials (videos) will help me better understand the thought process behind designing good, modern UI.
