Daniel is really a Photoshop professional! The course
Adobe Photoshop Fundamentals is really interesting for those who are beginners or for those who want to review some little used commands. The videos are well explained and explore all the topics. What can I say, I have already bought the Adobe Photoshop Mastery course that I can't wait to start! :)

  • ryanlittle001

Such a great course! Dan is awesome. Super funny and easy to understand. The practice files are very helpful. I feel like I have a good grasp on the basic skills needed to use Photoshop now. Looking forward to taking Dan's advance class!

  • Furqan

  • S M Muhashinul

  • lm1999

Loved Dan's Course! Perfect to follow along, not too fast, not too slow, and loads of extra Projects to work on!

  • amanda4job

Amazing course, though this requires some good numbers of hours to complete, i love the playful envelop given to it, that covers times while smiling and laughing a times. teacher was really good at this i must confess.

  • sharoonkhalid

Highly professional and intellectual instructor. He has its own flair of teaching and makes it more interesting. I LOVED IT, DAN. I've bought Adobe Illustrator Fundamentals already, but I promise I will see you in Photoshop Mastery as well :)

  • Manan


  • David

Very organized and informative. Loved being able to follow along and work on the same artwork he was using.

  • Geethika

Thanks Dan! For the Awesome teaching.


It was really amazing!

  • eranganew

I love the way that Dan presented the course. It's really attractive and fun to learn. Thank you Dan...

  • Enzo

GREAT COURSE! I'm a long time photoshop user, but its always good to see what's new and refresh my memory of all the parts of it. --> Will buy the masterclass too

  • Manuella

Although I have already done three courses with Daniel Walter Scott, I can not get used to his instruction style.

  • joy_alex

It's really helpful. Highly recommend.!!

  • jojoallstar

Easy to follow and comprehensive. Dan made an amazing course for everyone who is getting into the Photoshop CC

  • atikrahmanshuvo

Very Informative course. I just love it.

  • Felicity

Great Course
Dan is awesome to learn from. look forward to taking more.

  • todorf5

The Course was very well prepared but in some categories the quiz questions was not related. Also for a total beginner some operations and things will be hard. Need more details and tool explanations. But overall the course is great! I know this instructor for a long time and it was nice and refreshing to take this course again!

  • Taís

Sometimes a little bit slow and repetitive and it didn't seem like the course was put together at once for this platform but the content is really helpful with little tips and tricks even for more experienced users of Photoshop.

  • Jesse

“Hi there!” I’ve taken many courses from Dan and his Photoshop ones may be the easiest and most practical. In a short amount of time, I was able to take the Fundamentals and Mastery courses, learn Photoshop, and even make money in the real world from Photoshop jobs. Cool, huh? ;) I now feel like I can do almost anything with Photoshop, and if I can’t, I can always go back and watch the videos. Thanks for teaching me Adobe Dan!

  • John

I really enjoyed the instructor's enthusiasm, as well as his expertise. I did feel that a little more time could have been spent on covering more aspects of the tools, and a little less time working on designs. I also felt that some of the test questions were worded poorly, and some of the answers that were deemed correct were actually incorrect, based on the wording of the question.


Dan you are great teacher and this course is amazing.

Thanks Dan.

  • sharkintank

The instructor is like a magician who change the perception of image what I have done for my brand. Very Patient and Detailed. Worth my money and great investment.

  • Nick

Dan teaches an amazing array of lessons throughout the length of the course. All of these make you feel super comfortable with Photoshop and ready and willing to push my skills further.

Thanks Dan

  • Shando-Paul

  • raton87

Super detailed course. Though it is Fundamentals, it enough to start.

  • Mark

Loved it, starting the next course tonight.


  • bogdan_micu

An outstanding course and a great teacher. You learn a lot of photoshop with this course. Thanks!

  • seeingis

This is a great course. However, it is ridiculous that you have to go through the videos in order and take the test before going on to the next section.

If you want to go back and review a video, a week later, you have to go through the whole sections again. No skipping around. It's like taking a test at the DMV or an online test at traffic school

Very disappointed, I will go back to Linkin Learning.

  • Arrigo

I can't think of enough good reasons why you should start this course. First of all, it's not expensive at all. Second of all, it gives you a great understanding of what Photoshop does and how it works. Third, it helps with Fiverr gigs, allowing you to create custom thumbnails, just like I did. Fourth, Dan is entertaining and makes learning less of a chore than it actually is. Fifth, the effects and tools used (except a few ones) are relevant and usable on many different projects. Sixth ... You see where I'm going with this? "Learn." is the best thing that Fiverr came up with recently. Money for them, better profiles and ranking for us, and an overall knowledge gain. Go for it, now!

  • gig_freak

Dan is a great tutor. I had taken his course for Adobe Photoshop Fundamentals, just to test Fiverr's new platform - but honestly, Dan's course helped me straighten my graphic design skills, learn a lot of new shortcuts, and some features that I have missed in the past. Definitely, I will be signing up for his "PS Mastery" course, and for his Illustrator ones over the span of the next couple of months. Thanks Dan, I will be sure to follow you across social media for the latest updates.

  • sindre135

Daniel Walter Scott do an amazing work during this course. He goes deep in details and through the course he always mentions these shortcuts to make sure you won't forget it.
An excellent course for those who actually want to get into Photoshop in a way that makes you understand the tools and their power.

  • Fivr

Very useful for all Graphic Designers and people that want to learn Photoshop , the course is well organized and also contains a lot of tricks and features (as i expected) that you might find new even if you are have already a big experience in Photoshop !

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Adobe Photoshop?

    Adobe Photoshop is a powerful and full-featured image-editing program that’s typically used to edit and enhance photographs. It’s possible to make small changes to enhance colors and remove blemishes – or to perform advanced image manipulation. Photoshop can even be used to create completely new digital art from scratch. There are a number of image-editing programs available, but many experts believe that Photoshop is the best. It’s widely used by photographers, digital artists, graphic designers, web designers, UI designers – and many other creative professionals.

  • What jobs can I do with Photoshop?

    Because Photoshop is so powerful, it can be used to perform many different tasks. Photoshop is commonly used for jobs including photo retouching – improving photos before publication; photo restoration – whereby old or damaged photos are restored; and background removal – whereby a foreground object is separated from a distracting background. Fiverr buyers often need to improve product images for use on e-commerce sites like Amazon. Many people also choose to have personal photos edited, before posting them on social media or professional platforms like LinkedIn.

  • How can you use Photoshop for a career?

    Photoshop skills can support a career in photo editing; many Photoshop experts have built successful careers on Fiverr by offering photo-editing services. Tasks like background removal need a keen eye for detail, while photo manipulation needs more creativity. Photoshop skills are also essential in modern-day graphic design, where pencils and paper have been replaced by digital tools like Photoshop and Illustrator. If you’re serious about starting – or improving – your career in photo editing, photo manipulation, or graphic design, then this course will give you the skills you need to succeed.

  • How much does a Photoshop artist make?

    As a Photoshop artist, your earnings will depend on your level of skill and experience, as well as the type of work you take on. More creatively demanding projects are often priced higher than basic services like color enhancement, airbrushing, or background removal. Your earning power will also depend on the level of customer service you provide, and how good you are at marketing yourself. By offering your services on Fiverr, you can gain instant exposure to a worldwide audience and maximize your earning potential.

  • Which one is better for graphic design: Illustrator or Photoshop?

    There are important differences between Illustrator and Photoshop. Illustrator is mainly used to create vector-based graphical drawings, logos, icons, and other visual assets that need to be shown at different scales. Photoshop provides more advanced tools for editing finely detailed images – typically photographs. It can also be used to create digital art that mimics traditional art – such as paintings. Photoshop’s raster images are pixel based and may lose quality if scaled dramatically. If you’re interested in learning to use Illustrator too, then check out our Illustrator Fundamentals course.

  • Why is Photoshop necessary for web design?

    Photoshop is used by many web and UI designers. It’s possible to design a complete mockup of a website’s user interface in Photoshop. This mockup can easily be tweaked and modified if the client requests changes. The website designer can then create a final set of designs, ready to be developed into the finished webpage. User interfaces for apps and software can also be designed in Photoshop, and the visuals can be finalized before the development begins. This makes it easier to make changes during the design process.
