Rated 5 out of 5
Pretty sure I have a man crush on Josh Cole. I've been a photographer for a while now, but I've always just used Lightroom because I've been so intimidated by Photoshop. I tried learning through YouTube videos and online blogs and I definitely encourage you to access the free stuff, but for me, it was just hard to piece everything together. I feel like this course gives me a really solid foundation for Photoshop and I'm a bit shocked at the editing advantages that I've been missing out on. I did end up going through most of the videos twice because there is a ton of content, but it was nice to have some semblance of order to my learning. For the videos that I found more difficult, the text summaries really helped me to get a macro-level understanding of concepts before rewatching the videos. Bottom line - I recommend this course.
