This course is designed to get you started in your journey of learning Photoshop. Realistically, it would take many hours to cover every single tool and function – but you don’t need to learn every single thing about Photoshop. To get started, it’s more important to learn the essentials of how to navigate through the program, some important habits to develop, and some approaches that make it easier to learn more about Photoshop as you continue to explore the program. The lessons in this course will provide you with a great foundation that will help you develop your skill in Photoshop.
