Course Description

This course takes you from knowing nothing about Photoshop to having an incredibly good handle on the program in as little time as possible.

The three legs of Photoshop are

  • Layers
  • Selections
  • Color Correction

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.

The instructor Jeremy Shuback has taught over 150,000 people Photoshop and works as a professional designer. He uses Photoshop every day to create everything from billboards to photorealistic matte paintings for feature films.

More importantly, he understands that you don't want to spend 14 hours straight trying to learn Photoshop.

What are the requirements?

  • This course assumes no prior knowledge and starts with the very basics.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understanding the Basics - goes over how to navigate the interface, basic shortcut keys, adding text, working with images, and other features to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
  • Layers - shows you how to combine multiple images, resize them, split them apart, and add in color boxes.
  • Selections - starts by showing how to remove simple images from a photograph and finishes by showing how to select out strands of hair and change the background.
  • Color Correction - goes from simple corrections to in depth theory. It uses this theory to fix complicated photographs, change the color of a shirt from yellow to green, and even turn part of an image into black and white.
  • Object Removal - isn't just about how to remove a pimple. It covers removing wires, large objects such as a fencepost, and even how to get rid of something like a date stamp when it is in front of a person's face.
  • Beauty Retouching - I show you how to remove wrinkles, increase the size of an eye or decrease your nose size, how to smooth skin, what to do if you make a mistake, and how to fix problems such as bloodshot eyes.
  • Compositing - you see how all of these individual tools we've learned along the way can actually be combined to accomplish just about anything, from merging together household goods to to removing a person from a photograph and putting someone else in that person's place.
  • Wrap Up - shows how this is a solid grounding and while there's still plenty to learn, you now know enough to be dangerous.

What is the target audience?

  • Whether you're new to Photoshop or have been using it for years but were never quite comfortable with concepts such as layers, this course will get you up to speed.

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.

Good luck!

Instructor Biography

Jeremy Shuback, Professional Trainer to over 200,000 designers and counting

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.

For more on me and to see my work, head to my website.
