I remember when I thought I would never be able to learn photoshop. I project would come along and I would open photoshop and try a few things and give up and use ms paint, which doesn’t support layers and can be a total nightmare sometimes. If you feel like this no worries let me share my experience on how I learned photoshop.
I knew this was something I wanted to learn and I was going to take some work. I luckily found a website called Lynda.com. Lynda.com is a very simple idea, video training tutorials about software. I learn through repetition and being able to see things. If this is how you learn, video training is perfect! I don’t work for Lynda.com, I am just a person that used the 30 trial and found out this is the fastest way for me to learn a program. I have done countless tutorials on video production, graphic design, audio editing, web design and much more. If you believe knowledge is power you will love Lynda.com.
They have a feature that allows you to watch videos at double speed for when you are in a hurry, or just want to watch a 3 hour course as fast as you can. If you are struggling with photoshop I suggest you checkout some of the videos on Lynda.com and see what you think.
Here are my top photoshop course choices:
- Photoshop CS5 One-on-One: Fundamentals
- Photoshop CS5 One-on-One: Advanced
- Photoshop CS5 One-on-One: Mastery
- Up and Running with Photoshop for Photography
