We've put together a few "gems" in one place to make learning this program easy and enjoyable for you. If you haven't attended a Photoshop course, this is the course for you!
What is Adobe Photoshop? Even for people with no experience working with the program, this name is synonymous with effects in photography, design, collaging, applying filters. Even in English, the word "photoshopping" has entered the vocabulary of people who want to process images.
Photoshop is a powerful tool with a multitude of options - for the novice user, they may seem confusing, but don't worry - in consistently going through the most used ones, you will learn to craft digital images like a "pro".
Ready? Let's get started!
Through this online course, our goal is to provide in one place the theory necessary for a self-training beginner. The course is taken entirely online. At the end of the course, we have designed a Final Test with the theory from the course. Learners can take the test an unlimited number of times. At the end of the test, they will automatically receive their score in points.
Each module contains one or several video exercises with voice-over. Do the exercises. Repetition and reinforcement are the best ways to assimilate theory and put it into practice. For some exercises, learners will download the provided downloads.
Some videos are multi-part and go up to 30 minutes in length, but remember that you can go through them at your own pace. The total number of videos in the training is 44.
