Simply exceptional. I'd recommend this course to anyone who want "much, much, much" more than value for money.

  • Manuella

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

  • Aditi

If I could I would give 6 ⭐️ Very efficient and a pleasure to this course - will definitely recommend - Excellent Course - Many Thanks Daniel.

  • Robert

As usual Dan's class was great! This is the second course of his I have taken that covers Adobe products. He is a natural teacher and makes the classes enjoyable.

  • paulorr

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

  • Joyanti

Amazing Instructor! Thank you for share your knowledge with me, I am very pleased and happy about this course. I've taken a graphic design to my career so it's really good for me.
Thanks, Daniel Walter Scott Sir.

  • picbuzz

  • jennfisher

There is some very cool stuff to learn in this class.

  • Zahid


The instructor is very good. He taught me overall all basic fundamentals of PS.

Thank You

  • imran5555


  • kapscreation

i am working on photoshop from quite of years and knows the basics very well but the way dan teaches is just awesome ultimately this course is worth the money and time.

  • 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.

  • only1amjad

Great for me. I'm very happy, because I learned here lot. Really very good tutorial. many thanks. LOVE FIVERR!

  • hammad328

Perfect course. Going for the Advance course of Daniel.
Thank you so much Daniel.

  • Pataki

  • rustamnasir

Course is good, although there is a bunch of things i already known before but some of the tips which DAN gives is really nice and very helping.
For beginners its great course.

  • Zach

Dan is amazing. I definitely up-leveled my skill with this course and am more confident meeting client needs.

  • Nicholas

Educational and well put together.

  • juliahall091

I definitely got what I paid for, I will progress to the master class.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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 !

  • 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.

  • Coulter

Absolutely fantastic course, instructor, content, resources and practice activities. I've been able to apply my learnings at my day job immediately and have already impressed the design team. Thank you for creating this great learning platform Fiverr!

  • jonnwang

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! :)

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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • fena0220

The instructor did a great job! He nailed it! I've doing Photoshop for about 8 yrs now and still fascinated with the things I'm not yet familiar with Photoshop with what learned from this course! Great course to invest in leanings and upgrade yourself.

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.
