Hi there, my name is Dan Scott. I am an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) for Photoshop. 

Are you struggling to learn Photoshop on your own? This course will allow you to use Photoshop professionally. You will be able to add Photoshop to your CV & start getting paid for your Photoshop skills.

In this course I will teach you everything you need to know about getting started with Photoshop. You'll learn how to use Photoshop for use in Graphic Design & for Photoshop Retouching. You will create lots of your own projects that you can add to your own portfolio to help your employment.

  • David: "AMAZING course Dan! Thank you so much for sharing your skills with us!! Your teaching style is very professional and easy to understand. I feel comfortable with the skill set you've given me to handle small projects now. I've already purchased your Advanced Training Course in Photoshop and can't wait to dive in!! Thanks again!

This course is for beginners. You do not need any previous knowledge of Photoshop, photography or design. We will start right at the beginning and work our way through step by step. 

You will learn the Photoshop 'secret sauce' whereby we will magically enhance our background and when necessary completely remove people from images.

There are exercise files available to download so that you can follow along with me in the videos. There are lots of assignments I will set so that you can practice the skills you have learned. 

  • Simon: "I just finished the Adobe Photoshop Essentials Training Course and I want to say I totally loved it! For me, a person who had zero experience in using Photoshop this course was very helpful to get into the graphic design area with a lot of interest and fun. This course is very good structured - from easy to hard topics. Also it has a lot of detailed explanations and really fun practical tasks. I've got all I needed for starting to work on my own first graphic design projects. And again, Daniel is just a great teacher! His teaching style is awesome and I am really glad I picked his courses for learning my new profession. With Daniel it's really fun and interesting journey."

If you have never opened Photoshop before or you have already opened Photoshop and are struggling with the basics, follow me and together we will learn how to make beautiful images using Photoshop.

Ayush9 October 2020

I took some of the free youtube courses by Dan and that was the reason why I came here. I really love Dan's way of explaining things which makes explanation fun and throughout the course (basically during exercises) it never felt as if I am actually watching or taking some course, it was really fun and I loved that that. It was a great experience.

Monica9 October 2020

Yes, I love the way Dan teaches as I have completed the Illustrator course by him too. Excited about this one.

Juhlian8 October 2020

Yes! I had always been intimidated by the use of Photoshop but Dan makes it really easy for beginners :)

Kristi7 October 2020

Dan is the most amazing facilitator. I am completely new to the Adobe products and graphic design. I have now completed Dan's Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign Essentials courses which are HIGHLY recommended. I cannot wait to continue learning with you, Dan. Thank you.

Wendy7 October 2020

So far I'm only a few lessons into this course but based on what I have seen so far it is excellent. Good templates are provided to work with and Dan explains everything really clearly and in a logical order. Right from step 1 it is really easy to follow along and work with. I'm really excited about the rest of this course and very glad I enrolled.

Gabriella27 February 2020

I love this class and the teacher, Daniel Walter, his a fantastic instructor. His directions and instructions are very clear, the lessons are practical, and getting the hang of it is easy. I took a Photoshop class in my undergrad at university and I have learned more here with Mr. Walter than in school. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn Photoshop and feels overwhelmed by the program. I plan to take the Advanced class by Mr. Daniel Walter when I'm done with this one. Great class!

Maria25 February 2020

Perfect course for beginners, highly recommend. Everything was clear and easy to follow and understand. Thanks Dan, you're a great instructor! Will definetely take other courses from you :)

Nicole25 February 2020

In linea con le mie aspettative, un corso che spazia dalla grafica all'editing fotografico. Ben strutturato nella successione degli argomenti, insegnante piacevole da ascoltare e bravo nello spiegare. Consigliato sia a chi apre photoshop per la prima volta che a chi già ci smanetta ma ancora non conosce la potenza dei suoi strumenti.

Oksana23 February 2020

Perfect course, very entertaining. If you want to get through all the features, and not fell asleep in the process, this is right course to do

Avishay22 February 2020

It was incredible journey! I was really and at photoshop, I knew nothing! Now I have strong grasp in the tools of photoshop and I'm ready to work! I might take the advanced course as well to sharpen my skills as well. Dan is great instructor! One of the best here. Thank you for everything and hopefully i'll see you in other courses ;)

Agnieszka21 February 2020

An amazing course! Everything was explained, a lot of useful practical information. All exercise files provided, so I could do the same exercises in my photoshop.

Ramona20 February 2020

Really liked this course, easy to follow. Learn many new things and improve my skills . Daniel is a great instructor and makes things easy to understand. Thank you Dan, can't wait to start the Advanced Training Course!

Maria19 February 2020

I am new to photoshop, and the course has been easy to understand and fun. The instructor explains clearly.

Nihal19 February 2020

I lovee taking lessons from Dan. He is awesome instructor and I am really having fun in lessons. Thank you Dan:D

Linh18 February 2020

Dan's instructions and explanations are so easy to follow. Such an awesome course. Instead of feeling so overwhelmed by shortcut keys and complex features of PTS, I feel empowered and encouraged throughout the course. Thanks so much, Dan! Can't wait to check out his Adobe Illustrator Essentials course too.
