Course Description

Photoshop - very unusual program! It is on everyone's lips, its all want to learn, but at the same time, it is so complex that only a few possess it.

And the main problem is that people simply do not know how to approach it and how to study it!

For some reason, many people think that Photoshop can be explored at random, as any simple program or the remote control for the TV.

The man, not knowing the basics, starting to poke all the necessary and unnecessary tools receives the output complete nonsense and starts to get upset because of this.

Have you ever wondered why people do not give a driver's license until they pass a theoretical course and then do not consolidate their knowledge of driving practice?

The answer is simple: all and so it is clear that without appropriate training people not leave and can not only ruin your own car, but also cause damage to someone else.

The same is the case with any complicated computer program, such as for example Photoshop or 3DS Max.
