Course Overview


Hi there, my name is Dan and I am an Adobe Certified Instructor for Photoshop – this is the Advanced Photoshop course.

This course is not for people new to Photoshop. This is for people who already know the fundamentals. It is for people who have their own ways of doing things but believe there really is a better, faster way to work.

We will start by learning the best selection techniques available. I promise, by the end of the first section what took you 30mins to mask will now take you 30 seconds.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • 13+ Hours of content!
  • 10+ Interactive exercises
  • 68 downloadable resources
  • You’ll learn the best selection and masking techniques
  • You’ll know how to fix images that look ‘hard to fix’
  • You’ll master advanced levels and curves tricks, specifically with skin, adjusting and enhancing colors
  • You’ll learn how to enlarge images without distortion and what to do when things go wrong
  • You’ll know how to convincingly remove all kinds of objects from images
  • My favourite: You’ll master the ability to distort, bend and reshape images
  • Lets look at how current trending styles are super easy to duplicate
  • You will become a type nerd. We’ll use font pairing in Typekit. We’ll also use Photoshop’s ability to guess fonts
  • Your Artboards skill will be mastered
  • A master of retouching, you will become!
  • You’ll learn to edit videos in Photoshop, who’d have thought?
  • We’ll also create awesome cinemagraphs, AKA: Moving pictures!
  • You’ll learn to master 3D in Photoshop!
  • You’ll learn lots about professional, reusable mockups, techniques and shortcuts!

Here’s some of the things we’ll be doing in this course:

We will correct ‘hard to fix’ images and learn what to do with blurry images. We will master Advanced Levels & Curves tricks and will work specifically with skin, adjusting and enhancing colours.

You will learn how to enlarge images without distorting them and also, what to do when things go wrong.

We will learn how to convincingly remove all kinds of objects from images. My personal favourite section will show you how to distort, bend & reshape images.

We will look at how current trending visual styles are easily created, duotones, glitches and orange/teal colour grading.

We get ‘type nerdy’ and use font pairing in Typekit. We will use Photoshop to identify the fonts used in an image and learn how to work with hidden glyphs & ligatures as well as variable & open type fonts.

You will master artboards while you are learning how to make easily updatable multiple sized social media & ad banner graphics.

There is a big section on advanced retouching techniques, advanced healing, advanced cloning & patching.

You will learn how to edit videos in Photoshop. We will also animate static images creating parallax videos plus the very cool cinemagraphs sometimes called ‘living pictures’ – great for social media.

You will learn to master 3D in photoshop. We will finish off the course with professional, reusable mockup techniques & shortcuts.

This course has a strong focus on workflow. We use real world, practical projects and show you the professional techniques and shortcuts which will save you hours using Photoshop. Throughout the course I have many class exercises for you to use in order to practice your skills.

Who am I?

As well as being an Officially Certified Expert by Adobe, I’m photoshop guru and user with 18 years Photoshop experience. I make tutorial videos directly for Adobe and will again this year be presenting a seminar on  Photoshop at Adobe’s 20 thousand attendee strong Max Conference.

If you can’t remember the last time you sat down and went through the updates in Photoshop, let this course be your one stop professional development and upgrade path.

Even if you consider yourself a heavy user, I promise there will be things in here that will blow your Photoshop mind. Sign up now!
