Learn Adobe Photoshop basics in our photoshop training class for photo retouching and professional photo editing

with Nathan Lomas

Happy Birthday, Photoshop! Photoshop Turns 30!

Creative photography begins in the camera, but good photo correction seals the deal. In this Adobe Photoshop course, you will work with images to learn basic photo editing and photo retouching skills that you can bring to your own photography.


This photoshop class for beginners picks up where Lightroom leaves off, focusing on the fundamentals needed to address more complex situations within digital images—such as using adjustment layers, selections, masking, retouching, and basic compositing.


Professional photography begins with the right photography training and the right tools, and Photoshop is indispensable. Sign up for our Adobe Photoshop class today to enhance your photos and level-up your photography skills!
