If you’re worried about having the “right” version of Photoshop for this course, don’t fear. Any version of Photoshop CS can be used with this course.
Phil intentionally used the common feature set contained in all moderns versions, including CS, CS2, CS3, CS4, CS5, and CS6. In the videos, Phil uses Photoshop CS3.
Even though the main course videos were recorded with Photoshop CS3, which looks slightly different from Elements, the underlying functionality is almost identical. To bridge the occasional gap, Phil provides you with Elements Tips and Elements Bonus Videos where the two programs differ…
Let’s face it, with today’s smart digital cameras almost anyone can take a competent photo.
Increasingly, the “special touch” that separates a good photo from a great photo comes in the post-production.
That’s why anyone who aspires to be a great digital photographer needs to learn a core set of Photoshop skills, the skills that turnordinary photos into extraordinary photos. Now you can finally learn those skills in a fast, painless way.
Forget about those Photoshop books, which sit on your desk collecting dust. Who has time for that? And forget those courses by “gurus” who assume you’re some kind of Photoshop wizard and teach you mind-numbing technical details that you’ll never actually use.
In this course you get just the essential basics, the stuff you absolutely must know, the techniques that you’ll use on every photo, day after day, to turn out beautiful, professional-looking work. You’ll learn it fast, in a step-by-step series of short videos that build on each other to quickly take you from novice to expert.
Photoshop is the modern darkroom. And just as film photographers were not masters of their art until they learned to develop their own photos—you can’t be a master of your art until you master Photoshop.
