Learning Photoshop: For Busy People – Lessons 1-5 (Adobe Photoshop)

A Lesson 1-5 of ‘Learning Photoshop – For Busy People’! In these first 5 lessons, a collective of 1 hour and 15 minutes of training, you will go from having no understanding of Photoshop at all, to being able to use almost all of the basic functions!

Learning Photoshop – For Busy People, is aimed at teaching you, over the course of 20 lessons, to go from a complete Photoshop Newbie to being able to understand and follow the most advanced tutorials out there.
A lot of teaching material for Photoshop ends up focusing on all the little details that you really don’t need to know. Do you really need to have a full understanding of the coding in Actions? Or a deep knowledge of how Batch Processing works? No, you don’t. I skip over features that are rarely used, and focus solely on the stuff that people actually use to make their work.

Everything is taught hands-on, with practical applications as we go through it all. It’s gonna happen in a relatively fast pace, so fasten your seatbelts!
