Making RSS feeds for Truveo

March 31, 2008 | Comments Off

You Suck at Photoshop on TruveoYou’ve probably seen or heard of the unconventional “You Suck at Photoshop” tutorials. Maybe you weren’t offended, maybe you even like them. Maybe you want to track new releases via RSS. I was just like you a few minutes ago. I checked the website and couldn’t within my attention span find a feed that was just for YSaP videos. I’d seen them on YouTube so my first instinct was to go to YouTube and build an RSS feed from a search. Oops you can’t (at least not a very specific one).

Then I remember: Wait, I work with a search engine that does this EVERY DAY. Truveo makes this trivial. I went to and searched for:

“You Suck at Photoshop” channel:youtube

This returned the right set plus other spoofs and knock-offs. It needs to be restricted to the official user that posts them:

“You Suck at Photoshop” channel:youtube author:mydamnchannel

Perfect! Now click the “most recent” button to get the newest episodes first, and towards the bottom left hand corner you’ll see the traditional RSS icon. Copy and paste that link into your RSS reader and you’re done! (Click the thumbnail for a larger view of the page I’m referring to.)
