I thought I’d share a success story of your classes -
I completed the Photoshop 101 & 102 classes around 18 months ago & used those skills to start creating photo books for people. I launched a website and can’t tell you how much I’m loving my new work life. Thanks for such a well thought out course. It gave me just the right building blocks I needed to make my dream a reality. -Vanessa
This class will be taught in Creative Cloud. Versions CS5, CS6 and CC are recommended for use with this class. Versions earlier than CS5 may not translate well enough and are not recommended.
PLEASE NOTE: This course teaches the full version of Photoshop, not PS Elements. If you own Elements, this class will not apply to your program.
Photoshop 101 has no prerequisite courses. All you need is the Photoshop program installed on your computer and you’ll be ready to go! If you don’t have Photoshop yet and are unsure if it’s the right program for you, Adobe offers a free 7-day trial.
