What will students learn?

Through a series of short video tutorials and projects steps you'll learn all about:

  • Photoshop's workspace and tools
  • how to create clean multi-image layouts

And most importantly, I'll show you how to bring it all together in my Workflow in Action videos where you can see how I build several different collages from scratch - start to finish.

Another awesome aspect about this course is while you'll be learning how to use Photoshop within the context of blogging, the skills you acquire from the course will allow you to create images to publish on other platforms like Facebook or Pinterest.

I've taken a beginner's Photoshop course at my community college and loved it. Haven't taken much time to use it since but trying to now. This quick course was not only a great refresh but I definitely learned some new hot keys and tips. Your method of teaching works really well for me. Thank you! Looking forward to taking more courses from you. :)
