If you’re a photographer just starting out with Photoshop it can be a little overwhelming at how many choices there are for editing your photos. In this class, Matt Kloskowski, cuts through all of the techie stuff and overwhelming amount of choices. Instead, he just gives you the tools you need to know to get started in Photoshop. Tools that, as a beginner, you’ll find you continue to use even as you get better in Photoshop. By the time you’re done, you’ll be confident in your skills and ready to start editing like a pro.
If like me you pay outsourcers for graphics then generally they do a great job, however, sometimes we need graphics fast & what we have in mind is not always what’s delivered – that leaves you with a choice of either using a sub standard graphic or waiting for a corrected version to arrive. In doing so we miss opportunities & sabotage our own success. If like myself you have already looked at other Photoshop courses then you’ll probably realise that most are about covering every Photoshop function created in detail & none focused on key functions from which you can build core knowledge – who has $300 spare & 7 full days spare to listen to some guy with a monotone voice drone on about "adaptive wide angles" …. really? I just wanted to know the day to day stuff that’s useful – the rest can be easily built upon.
