Course Introduction
1 Lecture 04:02

Ever been stuck with a photo or image that's just not right? Not quite the way you'd like it? Or
needs to be perfect?

You may want to change or add any of the following: picture size. Composition. Colours. Cropping.
Contrast. Shading. Special effects. Caption. Text. And maybe more.

The simplest solution is image editing software. As you may have guessed, the best and most popular choice is Adobe Photoshop…

… Why? Because Photoshop is very powerful - it lets you create exactly what you want with every
image.

Because it's so powerful, you could be forgiven for imagining Photoshop is difficult to master. Truth
is, it's simpler, easier and quicker to use than ever…

… Especially if you allow a Certified Adobe Instructor like me, Marek Mularczyk, to show you how.
It's to help people like you that I've created The Complete Photoshop CC - The Fast Guide for
Beginners

Let me show you how easy it is to get started with Photoshop. How simple and fast you can make
your pictures perfect.

My Masterclass Fast Guide takes you step-by-step through all the basics and more. If you want
some advanced stuff you'll get that, too.
