Photoshop Basics

Start from the beginning by learning how to open Photoshop, then explore the software’s tools. Next, make your images really stand out with more advanced techniques such as layers, masks, blending modes, selections, creative effects, overlays, compositing and more. Students should have basic computer operation skills.
