This is an amazing class with so many techniques to learn. The instructor is the best of best on my list and I have taken over 50 classes on Udemy! Thank you Mr. Scott - this class really raises my confidence level!!!!

I wanted to wait until I had completed some more of the course before an official review, but honestly after doing the first few lessons it was clear that this was a 5 star course (and instructor)! The course was absolutely perfect in what it offers and who it offers it too. It's so easy to jump into something like photoshop and fiddle around and learn a few sparse skills, then get stuck in a intermediate state and stagnate. This course wonderfully bridges the gap between kinda-sorta understanding what does what, and having full control of Photoshop. In PS, there often isn't any one way to do a particular task, but some work better than others. Thank you for demystifying the toolkit and helping me to solidify my skills! Keep up the great work!

I feel I should elaborate a tiny bit on my 5 star rating for people still hesitating! This is hands down the best Training Cours on Photoshop. As an Illustrator user and lover, I've always felt scared of learning and using Photoshop. Tried million times, failed just as much (but maybe blindly following some shady specific tutorials on YouTube was not the best method). But then I came across Daniel's courses on Udemy (and learned later about his website, which I also recommend, cool stuff and resources). Natural, fun and intuitive are the keywords that first come to mind to describe his teaching method. The exercises are perfect, not to challenging (well it depends) but not simple either. Pretty much everything is covered, that said you can easily follow him on YT and learn even more. Amazing. He shows the love for the product and the art and most of all doesn't just scratch the surface. You'll learn how to use Photoshop as a great tool to express your art, no matter what kind of artist you are. As an aspiring and self-taught graphic designer wanting to take the leap and become a professional, I've felt the need to get a proper training for the tools I wish to use along my dream career, and Daniel's teachings really motivate me to challenge myself and go forward! I'm still at the beginning of the Photoshop Advanced, but I can't wait to start Illustrator and InDesign Advanced as well! Daniel, thank you so much! Huge high five from my little town of France.

Hi there, my name is Dan and I am an Adobe Certified Instructor for Photoshop - this is the Advanced Photoshop course.
This course is not for people new to Photoshop. This is for people who already know the fundamentals. It is for people who have their own ways of doing things but believe there really is a better, faster way to work.
We will start by learning the best selection techniques available. I promise, by the end of the first section what took you 30mins to mask will now take you 30 seconds.
We will correct 'hard to fix' images and learn what to do with blurry images. We will master Advanced Levels & Curves tricks and will work specifically with skin, adjusting and enhancing colours.
You will learn how to enlarge images without distorting them and also, what to do when things go wrong.
We will learn how to convincingly remove all kinds of objects from images. My personal favourite section will show you how to distort, bend & reshape images.
We will look at how current trending visual styles are easily created, duotones, glitches and orange/teal colour grading.
We get 'type nerdy' and use font pairing in Typekit. We will use Photoshop to identify the fonts used in an image and learn how to work with hidden glyphs & ligatures as well as variable & open type fonts.
You will master artboards while you are learning how to make easily updatable multiple sized social media & ad banner graphics.
There is a big section on advanced retouching techniques, advanced healing, advanced cloning & patching.
You will learn how to edit videos in Photoshop. We will also animate static images creating parallax videos plus the very cool cinemagraphs sometimes called 'living pictures' - great for social media.
You will learn to master 3D in photoshop. We will finish off the course with professional, reusable mockup techniques & shortcuts.
This course has a strong focus on workflow. We use real world, practical projects and show you the professional techniques and shortcuts which will save you hours using Photoshop. Throughout the course I have many class exercises for you to use in order to practice your skills.
As well as being an Officially Certified Expert by Adobe, I’m photoshop guru and user with 18 years Photoshop experience. I make tutorial videos directly for Adobe and will again this year be presenting a seminar on Photoshop at Adobe’s 20 thousand attendee strong Max Conference.
If you can’t remember the last time you sat down and went through the updates in Photoshop, let this course be your one stop professional development and upgrade path.
Even if you consider yourself a heavy user, I promise there will be things in here that will blow your Photoshop mind. Sign up now!
