Learn Photoshop with Movie Tutorials

Aug 17, 2007
Adobe Photoshop is a powerful image editing tool, the standard in the industry. It is widely considered to be the best program for the purpose, beating out a number of competitors. Photoshop comes with a wide array of versatile and useful features.

Unfortunately, these very features can be confusing and bewildering to the new user. Attempting to learn to use this tool from the manual can be difficult and frustrating. Manuals are usually written as reference for users who already have an idea of what they are doing, rather than for beginners.

Even books on the subject seem dense and hard to understand. There may be many features in your copy of Photoshop that you don't yet know how to use, because of the difficulty of learning this complicated program on your own.

To harness the potential of Photoshop in your image editing, consider making use of movie tutorials. This type of tutorial allows you to see how a given feature is used or effect is accomplished in real time, as the action is performed. You can even stop the video to go try it out in your own copy of Photoshop.

Because of the ability to stop, rewind, and replay scenes in video tutorials, you can use them as a constant reference. If you do not have time or money to attend classes and seminars, video tutorials can be a great help in learning to use your copy of Photoshop.

Some video tutorials are available for free, others require some payment for the effort that has gone into them. These latter type are more likely to be professional. The saying goes that you get what you pay for, and this is still the case with Photoshop tutorials. However, even the free type of tutorial can be useful.

They are readily available online, and can be used to find out if you like the video style of tutorial before you buy more professional video instructions. These tutorials may be offered in one of two ways. They can either be purchased individually, or a user who is learning Photoshop may purchase a membership in a site that offers tutorials.

Membership in a video tutorial site brings you the widest variety of professional video tutorials to help you learn how to maximize the features in your copy of Photoshop. Some topics which may be covered are how to remove red eye from your photos, cropping your photo to a more attractive size, and removing unwanted objects from the photograph.

Video tutorials can also be found to help you remove damage and make recent photographs appear to be antique. Video tutorials allow you to learn how to use the many features of Photoshop easily. Compared to bulky, confusing manuals, these short movies are the best choice when it comes to learning this versatile program.
