Course Description

This online course will teach you how to use Adobe Photoshop to create PRACTICAL REAL WORLD projects for your business or brand.

  • Do you want to create your own graphics for social media or the internet, but don't know where to begin?
  • Have you spent time and energy Googling Photoshop tutorials online only to find out that it never covers exactly what you need?
  • Is outsourcing your graphics to a 3rd party a hassle, especially when you have to go back and forth to make changes before the project is completed?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you're in the right place! 

We know that it can be frustrating and time consuming to create artwork for your business. You can spend hours or even days trying to find the right tutorial online. Outsourcing the work can be an even bigger challenge just to find the right candidate to do what you need done, and expensive!

That's why we created this course - to teach people just like you how to easily get started with Photoshop.

Phil Ebiner and Jeremy Deighan have been using Adobe Photoshop for years to grow their business and have developed a system to allow you to learn just what you need to know, only when you need it. 

Have fun while learning! Learn by actually doing!

After enrolling in this course, you'll be taken through 11 projects you'll need to run your business. Follow along and practice while learning!

Downloadable project files make it easy to follow along and practice.

The best part about a course like this is that you won't waste time learning tools and functions inside of Photoshop that you will never use. Most courses will tell you about every little part of the program, which is daunting to most people. 

Photoshop for Entrepreneurs will show you the necessary tools as you apply them.

MORE ABOUT PHIL:

I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.


Instructor Biography

Jeremy Deighan, Canva | Photoshop | Graphic Design

My name is Jeremy Deighan and I am thrilled to be a part of the Udemy team of instructors, helping others achieve their own personal goals. I have had quite the range of skills and hobbies through my lifetime. I really enjoy teaching and hope to provide information to others on anything and everything I know how to do! Please take a moment to check out my courses, and if you take any please leave a review and any feedback you have!

Art and Design

I have an extensive background in different forms of art and design. I have an associates degree in Computer Animation and I've worked with various production houses to create awesome content. Adobe Photoshop has been a staple of my arsenal since I was 16 and use it faithfully to this day.

I also have a history in live visual arts, specifically lighting design for music events, festivals, theaters, and corporate gigs. My passion for the visual arts has helped me become a master in understanding lighting, color theory, and composition.

Music

One of the first things I did as a young lad was learn music. Music is so powerful and one of my favorite things in life. I love playing music, and have played on various instruments; including guitar, bass guitar, drums, and the saxophone.

I feel music can provide so many emotions and feelings, and also has science and mathematical characteristics. It is such a fun topic and I can't wait to begin creating courses on this subject.

Math, Science, and History

I can't tell you what the latest Kardashian is up to, but I can definitely tell you a lot about Crab Fisheries and the Egyptian King Khufu. Typically when I am studying something outside of the art and music realm, it has to do with math, science, and history. I'm just drawn to man's accomplishments and new ways of thinking about things!

Healthy Eating and Exercise

To live a long and balanced life, you need to eat right and take care of your body. It's a mission of mine to make sure that I am in the best physical shape so that I can be around long enough to provide for my family. If there's any courses that I can feel like I really can give back, it would be explaining to others how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I mean, if you're not healthy, how can you help anyone else out?

I've also been very active in sports throughout my life. Usually, these are extreme sports such as skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding. I'm also a big fan of running, mountain biking, and have taken various martial art forms in the past.

That explains a little about me and my background. It also gives me focus on some key things that I would like to teach in the near future, so look out for courses from me on these topics!
