Photoshop is a great tool and can be used to create some stunning and awesome graphics.
It’s quite possibly the only graphics tool you’ll ever need due to all of the tools, functions, and power that it has.
However, with the wide variety of powerful tools also comes extra complexity that results in Photoshop being quite difficult to use.
Attempting to carry out relatively simple tasks such removing red eyes from photos, using gradients and colors, cropping and resizing images, and generally touching up photos, can seem very difficult for beginners.
It is common that Photoshop newbies can feel completely overwhelmed and frustrated, and do not know where to start.
Online tutorials are a possibility, but there are literally hundreds of thousands of them online and they often assume that the user has at least a basic understanding of Photoshop.
If you are new to Photoshop and can relate to this, then the Learn Photoshop Now Video Course may be of interest to you.
I found this a real help in quickly understanding the basics and it comes at a very affordable price.
The book says that it will help you master Photoshop basics in only two hours, but in truth it probably takes a little longer than this when you’re starting out, but there’s no doubt that it’s a very quick way to learn the basics and start doing some great graphical work!
It’s all video based so you can watch someone else do each of the techniques whilst you “watch over their shoulder”.
This is a great way to learn as you get to see exactly what’s going on, whereas with books there’s always the possibility that something might be unclear or a little ambiguous.
It’s also fully compatible on both the MAC and PC.

This report goes into real detail about what’s covered in the video course and also provides you with a free sample video (based on removing red eye from photos) so you can get a feel of what the videos are like.
