A Complete Guide to Photoshop

Photoshop is equal parts muscle and elegance. It has incredible power to completely transform images as well the nuanced control to do it seamlessly and intelligently. From simple edits, to professional retouching, to stunning composites – Photoshop can do it all.

Photoshop for Beginners

With so much to learn, where should you begin? For absolute beginners we’ve created a valuable reference in our Photoshop Basics Collection. Learn how to use the Brush Tool, the Pen Tool, Adjustment Layers, and more as we explain the features, functions, and techniques for 60 different tools.

With an advanced study of tools like Blending Modes, Paths, Smart Objects, Layers, and Layer Masks, this tutorial will give you the confidence you need to express your creative vision.



Skills and Gear for the Photographer

Modern photography is as much a technical art as it is a creative art. From learning what gear you need to a job done right, to learning how to properly expose an image, to understanding how to work with models and clients – there’s a lot to juggle and it can be hard to figure out where to start. We’ve got you covered!

Learn the Art of Photography

We put everything we had into creating the most in-depth introductory photography course possible. Photography 101 has it all. Learn the basics of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO.

With over 15 hours of content and over 50 sample images, you’ll be ready to pack your photo bag and start shooting like a pro!

Portraits to Landscapes

What kind of photographer do you want to be? We cover a wide range of styles and genres, from high-end conceptual shoots like Photographing and Compositing Group Portraits, to client work like Studio Lighting & Retouching for Athletes. And throughout all of our PRO tutorials, you’ll find photography advice peppered throughout, like in How to Master Black & White where we provide tips for shooting without color.



Lightroom for the Photographer

Adobe Lightroom is the go-to piece of software for the working photographer. Shooting tethered, it can be by your side during a photoshoot, helping you share the images and experience with your clients and subjects. Once you’re ready to import the hundreds or thousands of images you’ve taken, it will help you stay organized and choose your selects. It can edit. It can export. It does it all. And we’ll show you our tried and tested techniques and workflow that will help you work smarter and faster than ever.

The Essentials

Our Lightroom Essentials Collection is geared for the beginner. Learn to import, organize, catalog, and cull your images. Learn all of the editing features the software has to offer to correct exposure, compensate for lens distortion, and even remove blemishes and distractions. For those moments where Lightroom isn’t the right tool for an edit, learn the workflow for sending images over to Photoshop without skipping a beat.

Looks & Presets

Your PRO subscription includes unlimited access to our library of custom Lightroom Presets. Quickly and easily apply stunning looks to your images.

Photo Editing Made Simple

Photo editing is an essential skill for the modern photographer. The more versatile you can make yourself, the more work you can get, and the less you’ll get stuck trying to bring your creative vision to life.

Learn How to Edit – From Import to Export

Photo Editing 101-301 is a thorough examination and study of all of the techniques that you’ll want to know to help your images look their best. Learn to remove anything from a photo, correct exposure and color, and understand the principles of what makes a photo great.

Product Photography to Conceptual Shoots

Just as much as the photographic process, the process of editing can showcase your own individual voice and style. We encourage you to follow along with our tutorials but also to have fun and experiment along the way. How to Retouch & Composite Product Photography and Cut Out, Blend, and Color Match Like a Pro – Liquid Portrait are two great examples of challenging exercises in both style and fundamental skills.



Learn Professional Retouching

From advertising, to fashion, to wedding photography, or professional portraits – knowing how to retouch a photo is a valuable skill that can bring a lot more work your way. Remove blemishes, help skin glow, clean up hair and clothing, and add shape and definition to your subjects.

A Natural Look

There’s a fine line between an image that looks retouched and one that looks realistic. Learn valuable tips and advice from a working professional who understands the importance of subtlety and nuance in helping subjects look both tasteful and amazing. The Ultimate Guide to Retouching is a great example of portrait retouching that will leave you and your clients satisfied.



Create Stunning Composite Photos

The ability to combine multiple photographs into one can create amazing, impossible images and can also be used to solve practical everyday problems. We’ll teach you how to make someone levitate in The Beginner’s Guide to Levitation, create an alien world in A Dark Force, and create a striking athletic shot with Project Fitness.

Match Lighting & Cut Subjects Out

Creating a great composite begins before you ever pick up the camera. Understanding how to match light and perspective is just the start to the fundamentals of making images look realistic. In Photoshop Compositing Essential Tools & Techniques, we not only walk you through several complete composite edits, but we also break down each and every necessary technique we used to make these images possible.

Fundamental Skills

The Beginner’s Guide to Photoshop Compositing is another great starting point for learning the basics of this powerful skill. Learn the art of blending layers together, aligning images, and color toning to help each element appear as if they’re all in the same environment. These skills can be useful whether your creating an elaborate artistic piece or editing a large family photo.
