  • alphaphotos

Great course! Highly recommend to everyone!

  • 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.

  • 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

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 Photoshop skills are also essential in modern-day graphic design, where pencils and paper have been replaced by digital tools like Photoshop and Illustrator.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.
