Description

This course covers 5 main fundamental Photoshop skills that will allow you to branch your skills out further for more flexibility and speed. If it has been a long time since you have used Photoshop this is great as a refresher course.

You should successfully complete the course within 5 days, but remember it is practice that will make you fluent. To help with this further, high resolution images have been provided for you to practice your new skills.

This course consists of 5 in-depth video lessons to leave you with specific skill sets that will allow you to confidently practice on your own initiative.

This is a slow paced course deliberately designed to cater for all learning abilities. For those of you that already have a fairly good understanding of Photoshop you may find this course a little slow as I cover every single detail and also give examples of how it should not be done.

Who is the target audience?
  • Newcomers to Photoshop
  • Existing Photoshop users looking to improve workflow
  • Photoshop users considering taking on their first clients

This video lesson comes with 20 very high quality photos of flowers that I have taken in order for you to practice using the Automate Batch tool within Photoshop. It is important for you to keep copies of the images in their original condition before working on them. This is to allow room for mistakes.
