Tired of confusing online photoshop tutorials? Ever say to yourself “I want to learn photoshop from the beginning”? Then you’ll feel right at home in our Adobe Photoshop Workshop.

Creative photography begins in the camera, but good photo correction seals the deal. In this Adobe Photoshop class, you’ll learn adobe photoshop basics like photo editing and photo retouching on our provided images that you can later bring to your own photography.

Whether you’re looking for a photoshop class for beginners or a photoshop refresher course, this workshop picks up where Lightroom leaves off—focusing on the fundamentals needed to address more complex situations within digital images. We’ll cover using adjustment layers, selections, masking, retouching, and basic compositing so you can make your images truly exceptional.

Getting professional-looking images begins with the right photography training and the right tools—this photoshop course will get you the training you need to enhance your photos and improve your photography skills!
