layers are the key to learning Photoshop and unlocking its potential.
Finally learn how to select, use layer masks, and understand how to make more complex selections.
Learn which tools are best for removing distracting elements from photos and retouching images.
The system is broken down in to 11 mini courses/sections. Each one is a self-contained section that covers a key area of Photoshop. That way, you can jump in and learn exactly what you want to learn without having to go through everything.
The videos in the Photoshop System are short and simple. That makes it easy to jump around and learn what you want without getting bogged down in a long 20 minute video and forgetting where you are.
The PDF Cheat Sheet is a quick reference that outlines the steps in every video. That way, you’ll have a quick refresher and something to follow along with while you’re watching the videos. (Note: The PDF is a high quality PDF so you can print it as well)
Keyboard shortcuts are the way to really becoming a Photoshop master. This course includes a visual PDF shortcut guide that cuts through all the clutter of the hundreds of shortcuts that exist out there. Instead, I handpicked the best ones so you can master the most important things, rather than get caught up trying to learn them all.

Well, let me lay out for you how most other Photoshop training bundles come to life. First, a 1-2 hour course is created on some specific area in Photoshop. I’ll use me as an example: I created a course years ago on layers because that’s what people asked for. Then, a few months later people asked about selections, so I created another course. But I didn’t really think about my layers course when I created it. Been there, done that, outta mind, outta sight. Plus, I wasn’t sure if these people would be watching that course. And then a while later, I created a course on masking… you get the idea.
Eventually those courses were put together into a bundle, and sold together as a one-stop place to learn Photoshop. Looking back, I don’t think they were. They weren’t created together, in a way where one course knew the other course would be in existence. And because of that, I think it was fragmented, lots of duplicate info, and lots of missing topics that would link everything together.
The result. An easy-to-use system to learn Photoshop that you own. You download and keep the videos to watch whenever you want, however many times you want. It’s got an outline that lists all 11 “courses” within the system, as well as prerequisite videos I think you should watch as the topics get more complex.
For a beginner, it gives you a clear path of how to tackle and start learning Photoshop. For someone that knows enough to be dangerous in Photoshop, it gives you a clear way to jump in to just the topics that you want to learn about without having to watch more basic videos that you already know.
To tell you the truth, it’s a project that I had no idea how I’d tackle when I started. And it’s become one of the projects I’m proudest of in my entire career.
By being a teacher first, I hold nothing back. No secrets. That’s because my only goal is to help you get better. I’ve been doing this stuff for almost 20 years and consider my biggest talent to be understanding how people learn, and helping them achieve what they want with their photography. In 2013 I was inducted to the Photoshop Hall of Fame, and also have the honor of being included as one of Sony’s Artisans of Imagery.
