the course was very exhaustive, maybe just a little bit explained in a hurry. the teacher was very competent but sometimes I just felt that he didn't focus on an argument enough as I expected. anyway, this is the reason why I'm not giving 5 stars, but I learned a ton of thing by watching this course. I absolutely recommend it. just be sure you have enough competence about photoshop to understand what he is talking about. Very Interesting and formative!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Should I learn photography or Photoshop first?

    Photography and Photoshop go hand in hand, and it’s possible to learn new skills in both at the same time. Improving your photography skills will allow you to take better pictures, while improving your Photoshop skills will allow you to enhance those pictures and add exciting effects. If you want to build an online freelancing career, then learning how to use Photoshop will give you a better range of options. Photoshop services are in high demand, and Fiverr is the go-to platform for buyers seeking skilled Photoshop professionals.

  • Which Photoshop basics does a photographer need to know?

    Color is one of the most important features of photos. As a photographer, you should know how to perform color correction, adjust hue and saturation, and apply filters or LUTs. You should be confident working with black and white or sepia photographs; it also helps to understand concepts like color theory before you even begin using Photoshop. This course covers all these basic Photoshop skills, color theory, and more. It will also introduce you to some advanced practical techniques. The course syllabus gives a breakdown of what you’ll learn.

  • Can Photoshopped photography be considered as art?

    Yes, Photoshopped photography is a valid and beautiful art form. Working with Photoshop makes it easy to improve the quality and visual appeal of photographs – and other images. It’s easy to fix problems caused by poor lighting and add enhancements that improve on nature; making leaves look greener and the sky look bluer! We can also add more dramatic effects. It is important to be honest and disclose when and how Photoshop has been used – especially if you enter photography competitions or publish your work as art.

  • What is LUT in photography?

    LUT stands for Look Up Table. Look up tables contain values that tell Photoshop how to display colors. You can apply LUTs to your photos to create distinctive color effects. They allow us to adjust the colors in a photograph in a similar way to filters – but LUTs are more flexible than filters. LUTs can be used to change all the colors in an image, or just a small range of colors. We’ll look at LUTs in detail during this course, and show you how to use LUTs in Photoshop.

  • What is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom?

    Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (or Lightroom, for short) is built for image editing and image organization. There are cloud-based and desktop versions of Lightroom available; both can be used to add filters and effects to photos. You can enhance colors, sharpen images, crop, rotate, and invert your photos – and more. Lightroom also makes it easy to organize photos and add keywords. You can even upload photos directly from Lightroom to websites like Flickr and Facebook. Lightroom is widely seen as being easy to learn and user friendly.

  • How is Lightroom different from Photoshop?

    Lightroom and Photoshop are both popular image-editing programs. You can use either program to improve the quality of your photos – but there are differences between them. Lightroom provides simple tools that can be used to quickly edit and organize images, and post these online. Photoshop is more focused on image editing, and offers a more powerful set of tools for this task. Learning how to use Photoshop can take a little longer, but most users would agree that it’s the best software available for advanced photo editing.
