About This Class

Learn the Most Productive Tools and Palettes in Photoshop

It’s time to get your hands dirty and learn all about Photoshop’s Tools and Palettes. This will be your first official class on learning Adobe Photoshop. Here, we will begin discussing the various tools and palettes, what the main tools are for, and how to use them. Because it is an overview, I take the time to introduce the items that are the most important, and skim past the ones you don’t need to concern yourself with.

Despite the wide range and uses of the various tools in Photoshop, some are honestly not that useful. This is why we’ll focus on the ones that will give you the most bang for your buck. Rather than giving you a brief overview of all the tools, we’ll take our time and focus on only a few key ones, while making sure you understand how they are best used.
