We authors are all current or former community college instructors, and Adobe Certified Instructors in Adobe Photoshop®. Together, we have taught Photoshop to thousands of students, both in traditional classrooms and online. In our 16+ years of teaching Photoshop, we have learned first hand from our students which Photoshop skills they feel are the most essential, and also which Photoshop techniques they find the most difficult to master. We have used our students’ feedback to determine the topics, their sequence, and the step by step tutorials.
We have two two-level courses, one for Adobe Photoshop CS6 and one for Adobe Photoshop CS5. The projects and the theory behind each course series maps to both a full year's Photoshop instruction at the college level and also to the exam objectives for Adobe's industry-standard certification: Visual Communication with Adobe Photoshop.
