Adobe Photoshop CC – Essentials Training Course

Hi there, my name is Dan Scott. I am an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) for Photoshop.

Are you struggling to learn Photoshop on your own? This course will allow you to use Photoshop professionally. You will be able to add Photoshop to your CV & start getting paid for your Photoshop skills.

In this course I will teach you everything you need to know about getting started with Photoshop. You'll learn how to use Photoshop for use in Graphic Design & for Photoshop Retouching. You will create lots of your own projects that you can add to your own portfolio to help your employment.

  • David: "AMAZING course Dan. Thank you so much for sharing your skills with us. Your teaching style is very professional and easy to understand. I feel comfortable with the skill set you've given me to handle small projects now. I've already purchased your Advanced Training Course in Photoshop and can't wait to dive in. Thanks again.

This course is for beginners. You do not need any previous knowledge of Photoshop, photography or design. We will start right at the beginning and work our way through step by step.

You will learn the Photoshop 'secret sauce' whereby we will magically enhance our background and when necessary completely remove people from images.

There are exercise files available to download so that you can follow along with me in the videos. There are lots of assignments I will set so that you can practice the skills you have learned.

  • Simon: "I just finished the Adobe Photoshop Essentials Training Course and I want to say I totally loved it. For me, a person who had zero experience in using Photoshop this course was very helpful to get into the graphic design area with a lot of interest and fun. This course is very good structured - from easy to hard topics. Also it has a lot of detailed explanations and really fun practical tasks. I've got all I needed for starting to work on my own first graphic design projects. And again, Daniel is just a great teacher. His teaching style is awesome and I am really glad I picked his courses for learning my new profession. With Daniel it's really fun and interesting journey."

If you have never opened Photoshop before or you have already opened Photoshop and are struggling with the basics, follow me and together we will learn how to make beautiful images using Photoshop.

I enjoyed taking this course, and am looking forward to taking the next course.

graphic design

The assignments in this course have also given me a solid start to building a portfolio if I want to start looking into graphic design work.

(gradients are cool, like bow ties) I'm a self-taught graphic designer so I've missed a lot of the fundamental steps others may have learned while attending school.

yes, it helps me building my graphic design portfolio and Dan explains things very clearly, and I love the shortcuts!

I'm a total newbie so its like a "zero to hero" course for me, I learned a lot of things that I didn't know I can do, this will be the start of my journey as a graphic designer and I thankful for discovering Dan's course, I will work on the next courses on my list, advanced photoshop, illustrator, indesign and lightroom and I believe Dan will take my skills always to the next level.

I took Graphic Design in school and decided to take his essentials course for a refresher.

I skipped a few sections as im more into the photography side of thing rather than the graphic design but you dont miss out by skipping parts you feel you dont need and if i do need them in the future i can always go back to them.

Now i usually search for Dan's for other graphic design topics.Best one.Already took other course from him.

For a long time I've done graphics on the computer for fun and that eventually led me down the path of graphic design.

A couple months ago I stumbled across Udemy, browsed through the hundreds of graphic design courses and chose Dan's because it sounded the best to me.

I will definitely consider taking another course by this instructor - guaranteed to learn a lot about graphic design.

I'm afraid you've set me down the rabbit hole with graphic design.

Photoshop CC has many powerful tools for Art and Graphic Design.

Don't hesitate to enroll in this course Yes, though my emphasis is on photography I still got a lot from the graphic design It was a very interesting course for me.

I'm a photographer but I also love graphic design so enjoyed working through the projects and assignments.

step by step

Was an amazing and comprehensive course that walked me step by step through all the basics of photoshop using projects and clear ideas.

He leads you step by step, creates useful assignments for you and give you very cool extra tricks he applies for years already.

The course goes step by step (but not too slowly) and Dan explains everything really clearly.

This is a great course for someone that has no experience with Adobe Photoshop and is looking to learn all the feautures step by step, with Dan who is a great instructor.

Excellent teaching, examples, step by step explanation and very very excited to complete the course and after practicing start photo editing immediately.

It is a very good course and it teaches step by step.

Step by step and gets you up and running in minutes love it!

I have needed a very BASIC, step by step, system for learning Photoshop.

:) Very clear step by step explanation, length of video is also good, not too long not too short, just right Teacher, he explained very good.

The instructor is clear and shows you all details step by step.

So far so good.... Great explanation, step by step.

Step by step learning with great examples, great exercises and projects.

He's very user-friendly and shows exactly what he's doing step by step.

Dan is an extraordinary instructor and thoroughly helps explain in step by step detail how to make exquisite art.

even though

Even though I already knew some stuff which Dan talked about, I still learned a lot from this course.

Yet his style is casual, even though he covers things quickly, he reiterates details so I can remember them.

Daniel is probably very busy and there are probably many students for the course, but it is still a little irritating that even though you are encouraged to to message him with questions and to share your assignments with him on social media, e.g.

I have found it very educational and even though it is the Essential Course, it covers a lot of very useful topics.

it was super easy to follow along and even though its only the beginning i still feel like i've already learned a lot.

But he seems to be explaining how it might look different on a PC, so if you use a PC, it seems like you'll be just fine in this course even though some things might look different (menus and dialogue boxes mostly?).

EDIT: it is getting better, even though I still feel like there could have been more informations or at least more in depth.. will update it once I finish it Just the basic course information so far has super exceeded my expectations.

even though im not native english speaker, i understand every word that he said.

Even though I have quite a bit of experience I still picked up a few pointers and tips.

The teacher is funny and engaged and I enjoyed watching the videos even though there were a lot of information.

Curso bastante completo, pero le hubiera puesto mayor puntuación con retoques fotográficos más extensos Dear Daniel Thanks for your answer,I tried Q&A section, but its nothing Nader Course flows very easily, is very practical and even though I am only halfway through it, I already use new knowledge to prepare Facebook ad images for my small business.

Even though i knew most of the stuff i think this is the best course for starters Couldn't ask for a better course!

I too find it boring to tell ever single thing even though I only know few simple things, I think it's important to talk about every single tool, and he does it sympatically and perfect.

even though I had some experience with photoshop, but Im happey that I started from basics, so I built my way up, with perfect fundamentals.

This training course is very useful.

Easy to follow along Very well done lesson I never thought that something to vast like photoshop can be covered so easily and fast i thoroughly enjoyed watching this course so far and i am looking forward to get the advance training course as well great job sir :) So informative, but at a really good speed for me It was super fun and learned a lot I like him, he's easy to understand, goes slow enough to follow along.

I've already purchased your Advanced Training Course in Photoshop and can't wait to dive in!!

real world

This course shows you how to do things right through real world examples and assignments and I love that it is packed with little pointers and hacks to help me work smarter not harder.

Applications to real world and assignments are creative.

The lecturer is concise and not boring Real world applications and suggestion make it even better.

Here's the things I liked: - Examples and exercises were applicable to real world, and beautiful!

I loved that all your examples were pretty, already applicable to the real world and how you used the tools for every example.

All courses have some "real world" experience and he bring everything straight to the point with short and good understandable explanations.

Complicated, mostly like this "it works, I dont know why" Then I bought this course: - Structured - Actual - Examples of the real world - Based on experience (my feeling about it) I am half through this course and i love it now - thank you so much Dan!

Down to earth, real world instruction and application from the very start.
