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.
That being said, using Photoshop is not that big of a deal, and starting with it can be a child play if you’re a little tech savvy, but not everybody is, and that shouldn’t stand in your way of creating wonderful images with your computer. I used this software since high school (more than 10 years now), so I know a thing or two about how to use it, and how to achieve the desired outcome with it. It’s fascinating how many people quit learning to use a program after a few tries. So there, here is the reason this training will come in existence: I want to help you work faster and smarter on your projects.
Of course Dan, you’re a good person and all, but what’s in it for you? – you might say
Well, I could start and brag about how I am a wonderful guy that likes to help people and waste countless hours writing in Microsoft Word, taking snap shots of my screen and recording and editing video, but all that doesn’t matter. What matters is what YOU can learn from this. So here are the main chapters as I considered suited for a newbie at Photoshop:
- Introduction To Photoshop
- Usual Tools and Usage
- Basic Photo Editing
- Look Over My Shoulder
- Resources And Recommended Tools
All this training will be available in about a week, or two, and you will find about it here on the blog, or in your e-mail inbox if you are a subscriber.
