Learning Adobe Photoshop can be scary, so I have purchased the official Adobe Photoshop 2017 Creative Cloud – Classroom In A Book (mouthful 😂) by Andrew Faulkner and Conrad Chavez.
Can we just take a second here to appreciate how awesome it is when you receive mail you have been anticipating 😭❤️🛍🎁🎉💌📘 Thank you for making my Sunday excellent Amazon!
It’s actually an early birthday present from my excellent boyfriend 😍😘! I knew exactly what I wanted and if you’re anything like me then you like to give the gifts that keep giving… even if it’s a gift you chose yourself for yourself.
I’m not supposed to know the price of my gift but because I chose it and bought it myself online, it was hard to keep it a secret from myself. I wanted the best deal obviously but with these books you have to get a new book to take advantage of the online features. Each book comes with a unique code that can be entered into a website that gives you access to files that can be used during the lessons. I paid £31 for this book, which isn’t cheap but the back of the book says $59.99 so I feel like maybe I got a bargin.
I am a graphic designer by education and skill (still on the hunt for the dream job but I haven’t lost courage). As I have mentioned in my previous post ‘And so it begins…‘ I am starting an internship in March, which will involve me brushing up on my Adobe software skills. I consider myself a Adobe Illustrator wiz-kid, an InDesign junior but a Photoshop fearer.
I have always found Adobe Photoshop super intimidating! Thats why I thought buying the official Adobe Photoshop classroom in a book would be the best learning tool to help me conquer my fears and get straight in there.
I will be keeping you guys up to date with my lessons and how I feel the book is for teaching beginners. As I have good knowledge of other Adobe softwares I expect I won’t be completely lost with the basics.
Here you can see two pages from the book. It has an excellent layout and at first glance it looks as though it’s going to be excellent for step by step learning.
