Welcome Message

Welcome to the Photoshop Education blog. Our goal is to provide many different types of tools to help you learn this very complex program quickly and easily. If your recently new to Adobe Photoshop, then you are going to love this site because it offers easy to read and to be able to watch video tutorials. This site is dedicated to taking a new user (never opened the program before) and taking them past an intermediate level. With our site, you will find many Photoshop tips and tricks to make your experience with Adobe Photoshop more enjoyable (we understand that this program can be frustrating). Test your knowledge with a 10 question quiz at the end of every written tutorial. If you have arrived at our blog to find very advanced Photoshop techniques, then we would recommend you to view the websites that are listed in our "Special Links" section.

With our years of training experience, we have learned that each person gains knowledge in many different ways. Some people prefer to watch a video, while others comprehend it better when they see it in writing, while others prefer to do a more hands on approach. This is the reason why most of the tutorials on the Photoshop Education site are in written form (you can also download the tutorial and read it offline) and are available through a video tutorial. Another benefit of our site is that you can download the matching files (pictures, fonts, brushes, actions, etc.), so you can follow along with either the written or video tutorials. You can even download the video files and play them offline! It is very frustrating when you do NOT get the matching files and are at the end of the tutorial and the results do not match. With having the files, video/written tutorials you will be able to follow along with us and if you do make an error, you will be able to identify it quickly and correct the problem.

Our tutorials are very detailed and you will find no shortage of actual screen shots to walk you through the lesson. To get up to date information about new tutorials or updates about this blog, feel free to subscribe to the RSS feed.

All content on this site is free. When searching for tutorials, you will find many websites with tutorials but very few that are completely free (some sites charge for these features) that offer, detailed tutorials (video and written tutorials), and allow you to download the matching material used for that specific lesson.

All we ask from you is to take your time, have fun with learning the software and if you are happy with the tutorials listed on this blog, feel free to pass it along to your friends or just ad a comment.. We have built this site because we want to give back to the Photoshop community. All tutorials (written or videos), were created by the Photoshop Education trainers.
