Photography Question 

Online PhotoShop course

Hello, what are your thoughts about taking a PhotoShop online course? I've never worked with that program before and would love to learn it for the future. However, I work full-time and also have a husband and 1 yr old son to take care of. =) Just wanted some thoughts on how you all learned the program and if you took it online, some pros and cons....Any thoughts are welcome!! Thanks!

  Hi Teresa...
good books on photoshop & classes are really great to help the learning go faster... I have not taken the one's offered here at BP but I have heard they are great & see alot of great photo's others have done after taking the classes... hope others that have taken the class here chime in for you... BP also offers books on photoshop... my favorite photoshop book is done by Scott Kelby but only because I had it before knowing BP offered some books...
well not maybe over helpful but hope this gets others to chime in for you...
well that's my thoughts for now...
good luck & keep on shooting...

Jill :)

Rick Richardson    Teresa, I took one of the Photoshop courses here last year and I'm glad I did. If your time is limited you'll find no better way to begin learning this fairly difficult program.

And don't worry about the quality of the instruction. I was surprised at the time the instructor was taking on each of the students questions. Very well thought out critiques and lots of helpful suggestions.

Just jump in, you won't regret it!

  Teresa, Ben's Photoshop Mastery course taught me a lot and has really helped me improve my output. I've dabbled with PS before but never would have learned what I did if it weren't for the course. Scott's Photoshop CS2 book (I'm using CS2) is packed full of great tips that are a good compliment to Ben's course.
