Photoshop Online Class????
Q: I am very new to Photoshop (have 6.0) and need to learn how to manuever my way
around and do some basic and maybe "a little more than" basic things. I am NOT
a photographer, rather I am a makeup artist who is sent pics from a photographer
after a shoot, or I sometimes take my own "non-professional" pics with my Cannon
A80 at a fashion show or something.
Does anyone know of an online tutorial or actual class that they have had some
personal experience with? Or does anyone know of a company that offers classes
in different cities (Boston) that might be helpful? The idea of online is a little
more appealing, since my schedule is a bit crazy and I might be doing this stuff at 2:00am!
A:Lynda.com is a pretty good one. $25 per month and you can go online and watch the tutorials 24/7. I don't think that they cover PS 6 anymore The newest version is CS. It takes the place of 8. If cost is a concern, I'd suggest a community college class or one the local school district may offer for adults as "continuing education". Either way you could get the basics for not much $. Since your schedule is wacky, I would recommend self-teaching. The three best books I can think of are: Photoshop Bible (for your version) by Deke McClelland $39.99 Adobe Photoshop Complete Course by Jan Kabili $49.99 and Photoshop for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby $39.99 All these books can be purchased on-line for about half the list price! Also, you library may have them for free! The first one is VERY authoritative, but more of a reference IMHO. The second one is just what it says. A complete course that you follow along with. The third may be what you need right away though, as it covers topics you would use for sure. Correcting photos, hiding facial blemishes
