Free Adobe Photoshop Basics Course by Email

Here's what former students had to say about this course:

"There are many other basic courses out there, but I think this one is by far the best." -Ted

"I learned more from your online course than all the other classes I did on Photoshop put together. It's GREAT." -Eggles

"The Photoshop Basics [class] is incredible. I have tried so many others and couldn't even get through the first lesson because I didn't know what they were talking about! The one you wrote is so easy to understand. Thank you!" -GA

"I am about halfway through your class, and I just had to take a moment to tell you how wonderful I think it is! Your lessons have made this software come to life, and I no longer feel intimidated by it." -Frances

Learning Adobe Photoshop can be a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be! Adobe Photoshop Basics is a free online class consisting of eight self-paced lessons that will give get you up and running with a good start. It won't teach you all there is to know about Photoshop--that can take years--but it will give you a solid foundation that you can build on though online tutorials, third-party books, or other training.

Adobe Photoshop Basics is written for full versions of Photoshop 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, and 7.0 including educational and academically-priced versions. You must have one of these versions of Photoshop installed to participate in this course. Photoshop is commercial software. You can read my Photoshop review here.
