Create a book cover design from scratch
Welcome to the complete beginners guide to Adobe Photoshop.
In this series, we will be starting from the very beginning and working our way across 33 episodes to learn all the basics and create a project from scratch.
To help break down the process I have structured the course into three main sections:
Section 1 – Introduction
Section 2 – Essential practice
Section 3 – Create a project
Along the way we will be covering many topics, such as how to set up your document, using common tools, creating a project and finally exporting work ready for print and web.
After watching this series you will be able to create your very own artwork in Photoshop ready for print and digital use.
This course has received many 5 star reviews from real students!
In this video series, I will be using Adobe Photoshop 2016 CC for Mac. Almost all of the principles demonstrated and covered will apply to future and previous versions. Some differences may apply if you are using a previous or future version.

Is this course also suitable with Photoshop CC (2020)?

Hi i hav PS CS3, can is this beneficial for me ???
Hi Anjum, yes you can still use this course for PS CS3.
Hi, my question is a little bit professional. What are the opportunities one can derive from this knowledge.
This is a beginners course and introduces the fundamentals. Anyone in a creative career should want to know Photoshop as it can help you bring your ideas to life and execute them to the fullest. Some people build their entire career around being proficient in Photoshop (i.e. retouching), whereas others use it as a tool to bring ideas to life in design (i.e. branding and artwork). Hope this helps!
