The three legs of Photoshop are
If you understand how to manipulate those three elements you can accomplish just about anything with Photoshop. This course starts by going over those concepts and then shows how to combine them for powerful results.
Rather than showing you every single feature, this course focuses on the features people actually use without boring you to tears on the other tools.

Congrats! You made it to the end. Hopefully you're more excited to use Photoshop than you are bored to tears having just had to listen to me for however long this took. A day? A week? Who knows.
To watch the previous version of this class, and have the lessons reinforced in a slightly different fashion, using different example images, search for "Photoshop CS6 Crash Course" on Udemy and use the code Just5 to get it for just $5. This is a special code just for people who have already taken this course so shhhh... I trust you. We're friends now, right? We've spent enough time together, even if this conversation felt just a wee bit one sided.

Hi. I work as a full time designer and strive to create absurdly good courses.
Many of these courses were originally made so I didn't have to keep retraining interns. In the past year I've designed movie title sequences, billboards, magazine ads, websites, brochures, brand identities, high end presentations, and movie pitch books. In addition, I work as a photorealistic matte painter and a professional trainer.
I've flown to 100's of cities to teach classes in subjects including Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, After Effects, Print Design, Web Design, Visual Effects, and a handful of others.
To date, I've taught over 150,000 people Photoshop. The Photoshop course here is a distillation of three years worth of video tutorials, completely redone for the latest version. It's an effort to teach you the program in a fun, organized fashion.
