Photoshop Master!!!! 



Super informative and very easy to follow. I couldn't stop once i got started. Will be looking for more courses from this professor. Thany you soooo much!!!!

and much more...

Once you’ve completed this course, you will have basic knowledge of Photoshop CC and all the tools available at your disposal. Adobe Photoshop CC is the worlds leading graphics editing and creation software. You’ll learn everything you need to know about this software to streamline your workflow and be more productive. Plus, you’ll know all the tools available to help you fulfill your creative vision. Learn faster by doing. Working files are included so you can follow along and practice the techniques given.

Plus, lifetime updates. When Photoshop is updated, the course will be updated too (no extra fee). Now that Adobe has switched to a subscription base they will be updating the software more than in the past. Adobe has said there will be anywhere from 2-3 new updates per year.

I highly encourage student participation too. Have a course related question? I love questions and ask that any questions are posted in the discussion forum. This way other students can learn from your question too. Plus, I'd love to see how you applied what you learned. Post some before and after files in the discussion forum just for fun or ask for CC. I'll answer any questions as quickly as possible.

I'm working on the course to make it even better. Have a suggestion? If so, please send me a private message and I'll try to implement as soon as possible.


At some point, the Udemy system will ask you for a review about this course. Please understand that it is Udemy asking and not me (Chris Parker, your instructor). I do not agree with asking for a review so early (it's out of my control) in the course and ask that if you're not ready to give a review, please do so only when you're ready. I appreciate all feedback and use it to improve my courses.

I Hope your enjoying the course thus far. Please contact me anytime for additional questions/support. I'm here to help you achieve your learning goals and looking forward to your success.

Yes, I really do care AND answer ALL questions. :)

The goal of my courses is to help you master what you need to know in 1 day or less. Life is too short to spend on things you don't need to know. No Fluff. Learn what you need and apply. Spend less time in front of your computer and doing more of what you love.
