Course Description

There's no doubt Photoshop is an awesome photo and image editing tool. But wielding it's full power can be an intimidating endeavor for any beginner.

No more! With Photoshop Accelerated For Beginners, you'll be turning those bland looking photos into color soaked, eye candy that looks good enough for framing and hanging on the wall.

We'll start off with some quick fundamentals and then transition into real world examples that you can begin using immediately.

If you have ever wanted to:

  • Remove a ring from someone's finger and make it appear like it was never there
  • Remove wrinkles and smooth out skin
  • Learn how gradients work
  • Gain control of Photoshop's complexity
  • and more!

than this course is for you. Just click the "Take This Course" button to get started immediately and I'll see you in the first lesson.

If you're still here reading, ok, I'll give you some more details and hopefully convince you that this is the right course for you.

The first lessons in the fundamentals section starts you off with the workspace. Creating a layout specific to how you work will help you focus on what's important - design and editing. You don't want to constantly be guessing where everything else. Organize it once and forget about it.

Next we get a tour of Photoshop's tools and what they are used for. This gives you some insight and knowledge about each tool and when you might want to use them.

We then move on to the menu, which is full of options for nearly everything you could want to do in Photoshop. The trick is learning keyboard shorts and what's under each major menu section.

Once the menu is cleared, we look at what image and canvas resizing are all about. These are two different but equally important features.

Continuing with fundamentals, we dig deep into the engine of Photoshop - the curve tool. This is the tool behind many of Photoshop's tools that are hovering on the surface. The curves tool is pure power.

Who ever thought just text could turn so many heads? In the typography section, you'll become a master manipulator of text.

The last section provides several quick and easy real world examples that you can begin using immediately. You don't even need to go through the fundamentals section. Each of these examples are meant to stand on their own.

So what are you waiting for? Design awesomeness is just seconds away! Click the "Take This Course" button to get started and I'll see you in the first lesson.

Instructor Biography

I'm a software engineer and entrepreneur. I've also started several businesses. Bitesize Business School is the latest, where I write about applying business principles to the real world and solving technology issues that every online business faces.

The first business I created, Cygen, was a web design consulting business. From this business, I also created my first product - A chatroom web application that was javascript based.

I've written desktop applications in languages running from Delphi to C# winforms/WPF. I've also built ASP.NET webforms and MVC based applications. When the iOS SDK was first introduced, I bought a Macbook and began building apps for the iPhone. I currently have seven apps in the iTunes App Store.

I have an MBA from ASU ('14). My undergraduate major was in mathematics. Before graduating, I decided to get a business degree. I continued taking mathematics courses at the University of Washington after completing my undergraduate degree.
