I’ve been flirting with the idea of creating a basic Photoshop course for well over a year now, and since I had more time on my hands (as I’ve quit my job, if you don’t already know), the idea is becoming reality as “The Secret” states.
Who is it For
This course was prepared for you, casual cool, talented architects, or designers that want to learn Photoshop in an easy relaxed manner. I hope to be able to help you with that, as I would have wanted to receive help when I first started using the software.
Why Another Photoshop Course, Dude?
Yes, there are a lot of courses and guides out there on the subject, and you can go ahead and hunt them down if you like. I won’t stop you. I believe this one is suited for architects best, and it gets you through the basics in a simple (and coherent) manner.
