This is a comprehensive course that will guide you through all the basic and advanced tools used to design a website from scratch in Photoshop. You'll see the actual design process in action, rather than solely focusing on theory.

What makes this course different is the fact that it goes beyond design to also teach you how to earn a living designing websites. In a few weeks, you can implement strategies to make your workflow more efficient, differentiate yourself from the competition, and earn more money as a web designer.

Contents and Overview

In addition to step-by-step walkthroughs that teach you how to efficiently apply tools in Photoshop to your projects, you'll receive 50+ premium PSD files and other materials to help you further develop your skills.

After mastering how to design websites using Photoshop, you'll also learn how to be a more profitable freelancer. You'll receive tips to help you outsmart other designers and get the best projects. This means you can earn more money on each project and take on fewer clients overall. Strategies like this will help you have a better work-life balance.

Instructor Biography

Cristian Doru Barin, Made over $50,000 by working in Photoshop part time!

Cristian Doru Barin, been in the web design business for 5+ years. I started out by making complete websites (meaning I designed and coded them as well), but then I found out about other ways I could earn a living through web design.

From that point, I started learning Photoshop so I could focus only on the design aspect and I left the difficult part (the coding) to other people who specialize in that area. Despite what you might initially think, it is much more profitable and less stressful. How much did I study? A lot. I mean a lot!

Then I practiced and found out what were the best ways of achieving certain effects. I would usually make 5-7 homepage designs per day in around 12-14 hours. That's a lot of work by any standards.

Now things have changed. I am fast, efficient and know the best ways of creating stunning website designs in no time. I choose how much money I want to make by selecting more or less projects to work on.

I am also an entrepreneur: I started my first business at 18 and quickly expanded it. I have multiple online businesses: an online shop, a web design business, app creation studio for Android devices; plus more in the making.

Having all these, I still made over $50,000 by working mostly part time in Photoshop. Learn from my experience and cut down the time it takes to start earning a living from Photoshop.

Photoshop: The Digital Darkroom

Photoshop is magic. It gives photographers and other creatives the power to edit and manipulate pictures with quick clicks. Most do not realize that many of these Photoshop tools are rooted in the handmade tradition and craft of photography. The magic of Photoshop is only fully appreciated when one contrasts the ease of clicking Photoshop tools to what would be required to manipulate a physical print in a darkroom.
