Watch Photoshop CS5 for Beginners

This course is not just about what you will learn in Photoshop CS5 - it is 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. Realizing that Photoshop is a huge program with a lot of tools, filters, adjustments, palettes, and menu items, Matt Kloskowski cuts through the complexity and just shows you exactly what you need to know to hit the ground running in Photoshop. 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 will be at the next level in no time.
