About the Instructor:

Hello students! My name is Viktoria and I was learning Photoshop from Beginner to Advanced by myself. It was 6 years ago when I started to learn Photoshop and until today I continue to learn it. That’s why I want to share the knowledge and skills which I have with you!

Everyone can learn and after that work in Photoshop as a professional designer. It’s easier than you think!

Why did I start to learn Photoshop?

When I decided to start my first YouTube channel. I was creating the first thumbnail for my first video and the Program which I used was Photoshop. This is how I started to learn Photoshop. I still remember that day and how hard it was for me. But I wanted to start working in Photoshop like a professional and improve my skills. That’s why I am still learning Photoshop and trying to increase my skills every day.

1. Edit your photos

Learning how to make complicated photo manipulations takes time, but it’s easy to make your photos brighter or delete spots. Not to mention that you can resize or crop them with one touch of a button.

2. Create actions

When you take many photos for your blog or Instagram, you might find yourself editing every image the same way. To avoid it you can create actions to do that for you. They are very helpful when you are editing batches of images.

3. Create images for your blog or social media

You can use Photoshop to edit a photo or create a colorful background, add lines or shapes, and then add text.

4. Create image templates

You can make images almost every day, but you don’t need to spend hours creating them. That’s why you can create image templates in Photoshop.

5. Make mood boards or photo collages

You can use mood boards for your blog, client work, or even when you want to redecorate your home. Making photo collages using your holiday photos is also fun and easy.

6. Make website mockups

When you start a website, you often start by drawing it. It’s very easy to make website mockups and you can move things around and many changes before you start coding.

7. Create worksheets and printables

You can create worksheets and share them with your audience as a content upgrade.

8. Create infographics

Infographics are great if you want your posts to be shared on social media. They are very popular on Pinterest because vertical images are easier to view.

You can easily create a blog button using your logo or text and advertise on other blogs. Or if you want to add other blogs or ads in your sidebar, you can optimize the images and make them fit your sidebar using Photoshop.
