I have been on a frenzied search for some quality free Photoshop courses for you, after all we are now purveyors of premium Photoshop actions extraordinaire so it would only behoove us to get you hooked on the product (both of them). You don’t need to know much Photoshop to use Foto Rx but there are some things that you’ll need to know to use them to the best of their capabilities like where to find your layers palette, how to use a layer mask, where to find your brushes, etc. all incredibly easy/no sweat tasks but I do understand the program can seem daunting upon first opening. I wanted to find you a class/course and I ended up finding many! And free books too! And get this not just on Photoshop, but Photography and many other creative subjects. There’s a catch of course, (isn’t there always?) It’s not free forever, it’s only free for 10 days, but I can attest that in 10 days you can squeeze quite a few videos and books in, which gives you plenty of time to dive in and learn some very basic skills. The company is called Creative Edge and is brought to you by publishing powerhouse Peachpit which is renown for their Photoshop and photography books. You don’t even have to put in your credit card information to get the free 10 day trial. I would suggest you join when you know you’ll have a stretch of a couple days to really dig in and explore so you don’t let your trial go to waste, but who knows you might find it’s an excellent resource and stay awhile longer (I think it’s a cancel anytime policy). And no, we aren’t affiliated with them in anyway, but I found it was one of the best goldmines of information available for the investment (free!) Have fun exploring!
P.S. These may be a little less exciting/more dry than if we taught the course but the information is still great!
