Adobe Photoshop Training
Is this the best course for me?
These days, there are many websites offering online Photoshop training and let's face it - online training IS cheaper than instructor-led classroom training.
But are you really getting your money's worth?
Our goal is to turn you into a Photoshop pro in as quickly as possible. This means that in a short time, you will be able to produce professional marketing and advertising images that can be used to make lots of moolah.
The biggest problem with online training is that it’s boring. Watching 1 hour of someone else using Photoshop (let alone 18 hours) is enough to put anyone to sleep.
And what if you don’t understand a step or have a question about an upcoming project?
Without the interaction and learning by doing you are literally watching a dull movie. That's great if you have insomnia but not great if your boss expects you back in 3 days with real skills.
Okay, so why choose us for your Photoshop training…
Firstly we are Adobe certified. If you had to choose any training company, at a minimum, make sure their trainers are Adobe certified.
Adobe has one of the toughest entry requirements of any certified training program, so this ensures you get a quality trainer.
What makes a really great Photoshop trainer?
The best Photoshop trainers have extensive commercial experience and are able to share that vital real world knowledge with the students.
Our Photoshop trainers all have a minimum of 15 years of graphic design experience. They are also all genuinely passionate about teaching and helping students.
Meet the Trainers
The Right and Wrong Way to Learn Photoshop
Lets start with the wrong way; this is when a trainer teaches you Photoshop tool by tool.
The right way and the way we teach Photoshop is through completing a series of real-world projects. Our students start with a blank canvas, using multiple tools, panels and techniques to create brilliant artwork before exporting it for print or web.
The 2 major benefits of this approach are that it teaches you how graphic designers use Photoshop in a professional environment, and you get to cover the most important tools and panels several times across a series of different projects.
Why the Courseware Is Important
Most training companies teach from the same books and titles like Classroom in a Book that can be purchased on Amazon for $30.
To deliver the kind of training experience we were after we developed our own courseware, making our Photoshop training totally unique (and better, we think) compared to anything else out there.
Which course should I take?
We also bundle the above 2 courses into a 5-day bootcamp, which is an excellent value at only $1495.
What if I don't understand everything?
Our trainers are very approachable and are there to answer all your questions. But we also offer a free repeat on our Photoshop training that is valid for 6 months. So if you feel that you could benefit from repeating the course (often with a different trainer), there is no charge.
How about a money-back guarantee
We guarantee our training, so after the first day, you feel the course is not for you, you are free to leave and we will offer you a full “no questions asked” refund. See our money-back guarantee terms.
At the end of the class
Each student receives a certificate of course completion and as a way of saying thanks, you will leave the training with a couple of AMC movie tickets. After 3-5 days of intense hands-on Photoshop training you will have earned a relaxing break and hopefully the movie tickets will come in handy.

I recommend the class be directly connected to the next level to allow the student to readily apply the initial training information. The Office Manager was extremely professional, friendly and helpful!"
It's been said that teaching is the art of explaining to people who don't understand very well, and of understanding people who don't explain very well. Michael is quite proficient at both."
