If you're like most
Photoshop users, you picked up the basics quickly and then your learning curve
ended as quickly as it began.
Oh, you might dabble a little bit from time to time,
exploring new tools and functions on your own or with a manual by your side. But

In one day, you'll acquire
dozens of new tricks, tips and shortcuts that you can put to use immediately.
Any Photoshop pro will tell you that you can't learn it all in a single day (and
be wary of courses that make that claim). The content of this workshop is built
around topics that will give you the biggest, fastest payback. It doesn't waste
your time on pointers and techniques you'll seldom use or need.
Your newly acquired
Photoshop savvy will help you replicate practically any graphic treatment that
catches your eye. You'll be able to skim through magazines, ads, Web sites and
brochures, find the "look" that really grabs you and mentally go through
Photoshop steps that accomplished it.
With a little practice, you'll soon be creating
similar "hot" looks that can make your own work stand out and get the reacion
you want from the readers.
Everything you learn at this workshop opens a new
door of Photoshop understanding. Not only will you take home specific skills,
shortcuts and techniques, but you'll also come away with greater insights into
how Photoshop works.
That means that any self-teaching you do, any
manual-assisted training you attempt, any "experiments" you want to try will all
come easier. You'll know enough and be confident enough to venture further and
further into Photoshop's endless possibilities.
