This course is not just about what you’ll learn in Photoshop CS5 – it’s also about what you won’t learn. While many beginners courses try to teach you everything there is to know about Photoshop, this beginners crash course shows you just the things you need to know to start feeling confident in your skills. Best-selling author, Matt Kloskowski, realized that Photoshop is a huge program with a lot of tools, filters, adjustments, palettes, and menu items. So he cuts through the complexity and shows you exactly what you need to know to hit the ground running in Photoshop. Things like:

  • Layers and how they are key to using Photoshop
  • Selections and the only tools you really need to worry about
  • Everything you need to get started with Camera Raw
  • Which retouching tools you’ll use the most

When you’re done with this course you’ll realize you didn’t learn every little thing there is to know in Photoshop. But you will have a solid grasp of the most important features and you’ll be at the next level in no time.

Approximate Run Time: 139 min
