Learn PhotoShop in a day

How I learned to use Photoshop the easy way?


posted by: Paul Green

When I first looked into Photoshop, I said to myself, "no way, too complicated." I didn't take the time to look at the PhotoShop Tutorials and books available at the time to help me and of course I didn't believe I can learn to use Photoshop in a day. Eventually, I went back and found some Photoshop tutorials that only confused me and made using Photoshop seem like an impossible goal. 


You probably know what I'm talking about.
All that search for the right solution must've been driving you crazy!
If you are a new to digital photography and want to learn how to manipulate your images, I recommend you learn PhotoShop.


There are tons of books about photoshop that teach you to use it and I tried lots of them. I've also tried watching Photoshop Tutorials, reading on forums and many more. Nothing helped! And then I found this book and kicked myself for not doing it sooner. The book  "Photoshop in a day" made it much easier and everything became crystal clear for me. 


Obviously if you are an advanced tech, than by all means hop right in. For the average computer user however, I find the help of the book and its visual aids an immense benefit. I have used Photoshop for all of my graphics work and my family albums. You'll be able to do all this as well!  


Without the book, you'd never be able to fix an imperfect smile, or correct bad lighting, or swap out heads in a photo. (My favorite thing). Seriously, you can do that! Once I was shooting several dozen photos of infant twins. I could never get both of them to look perfect at the same moment, so I just got their best expressions from all the photos I shot and then merged them into one photo to make the perfect shot :)


The most amazing thing is that I downloaded "photoshop in a day" only to fix a few photos but I also found it has all these great stuff:

- easy to understand
- organized topics
- step by step instruction
- suits both new and previous versions of Photoshop
- fits all knowledge levels!
- covers all tools and features


To really learn PhotoShop, you need a step-by-step book that will help you every step of the way. Similar to learning in a classroom environment, you'll need an instructor to walk you through the most essential features. Photoshop is not hard to learn, but you will need instruction and this book I had found, Photoshop in a day, seems to be the method of choice when it comes to learning Photoshop.


You can watch tutorials all day long and learn small bits of PhotoShop, but you'll still be frustrated at the end of the day because you still don't know where half of the tools and functions are. Doing tutorials are great for experienced users or others who just want to freshen up their skills. To become a PhotoShop Master, you must first learn the basics; such as the menus, tools, layer styles, layer adjustments, filters, adobe bridge and more. Without the basic understanding, you'll only continue to get frustrated. This will help you expand your ability to apply amazing effects and begin to compete with the Pros. 


The only drawback is that it costs 25$, but after thinking a lot about it, I came to realize that I will know Photoshop from A to Z and won't need to waste time searching the net ever again! It totally worth it!
