Giuseppe received great feedback from my 16 year old daughter after the first lesson, and she wants to continue learning from him.
She is a tough critic, so this is high praise for Giuseppe. :)

Understanding the Basics - goes over how to navigate the interface, basic shortcut keys, adding text, working with images, and other features to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
Layers - shows you how to combine multiple images, resize them, split them apart, and add in color boxes.
Selections - starts by showing how to remove simple images from a photograph and finishes by showing how to select out strands of hair and change the background.
Color Correction - goes from simple corrections to in depth theory. It uses this theory to fix complicated photographs, change the color of a shirt from yellow to green, and even turn part of an image into black and white.
Object Removal - isn't just about how to remove a pimple. It covers removing wires, large objects such as a fencepost, and even how to get rid of something like a date stamp when it is in front of a person's face.
Beauty Retouching - I show you how to remove wrinkles, increase the size of an eye or decrease ...

Kelvin was an incredible teacher! He somehow made the very technical art of origami a bit easier to digest and do on our own from home. He was supportive and cheering us on, and his passion for origami was extremely evident. We can't wait to work with him again. Thanks, Kelvin!

Etana was extremely helpful and very patient with a newbie like me! She was AMAZING!
Q
I learned SO MUCH in just a short amount of time. Etana makes it SO MUCH FUN to learn and it's even more enjoyable because you're actually finally learning! Before Etana I tried a college, endless online courses (snore) and private lessons. They were all boring, not what I needed or just went by way too fast with no one to ask questions to. This experience was AWESOME! And Im SO glad I chose this Instructor out of the others. Great personality, funny sense of humor and learned alot.

Private Adobe Photoshop Lessons Near You

Even if you don't yet understand exactly what Adobe Photoshop is, you've likely heard about it. Photoshop has become a pervasive theme in popular culture. "Photoshopping" is now a verb, and "Photoshopped" is a regularly used adjective.

Anytime we see a model on the cover a magazine, we're compelled to wonder whether the image is authentic or if it was Photoshopped. That's just how amazing Adobe Photoshop software is — we often can't tell the difference between original and retouched images. With private Photoshop lessons, you, too, can learn how to manipulate photos, turning imagination into perceived reality. 

Why Learn How to Use Adobe Photoshop?

Many choose to learn Adobe Photoshop for career advancement, and taking classes is worth the expense. Whether you're just entering the workforce, going for a promotion, or want a more creative role, knowing how to use Adobe Photoshop can help. Photoshop skills are essential to any position in graphic design, web design, and user experience (UX) design. If you work in marketing, creating visual media, you'll find Photoshop useful, too. 

Others learn how to use Adobe Photoshop simply for the fun of being creative with highly powerful, seemingly limitless digital tools. In Photoshop, you can experiment with your own perception of reality by manipulating images. Whether you want to see what you or a friend looks like with different eyes or how yesterday's sunset appears through a photo filter, Photoshop can show you. With Photoshop, you can make the fictional fancies of your imagination appear real. 

The Best Way to Learn Adobe Photoshop and What You'll Study in Lessons

Yes, it's easy to find free Adobe Photoshop classes and tutorials online, but nothing beats learning with a private Adobe Photoshop tutor. Whether you want to learn to retouch your photos or transform them into completely different works of art, a private teacher can help you achieve your goals fast. You'll receive immediate answers to your questions and prompt feedback with your teacher's undivided attention.

Plus, no two private lessons are exactly alike. For example, Adobe Photoshop classes for kids differ in terms of teaching style and course content from Adobe Photoshop Lessons for adults. No matter your age or current skill level, your private Adobe Photoshop teacher will completely customize your lessons to meet your needs, keep you motivated, and hold your interest. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Adobe Photoshop

If you have little or no prior experience working with Adobe Photoshop, then you'll be most comfortable in beginner lessons. Your teacher will introduce you to the basics of Photoshop. You'll learn to navigate your way through the software and use some of its basic tools to improve and manipulate the appearance of images. Your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Understanding raster images
  • Navigating menus, tools, panels, and options
  • Harness the power of layers
  • Experimenting with filters
  • Using the type tool

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Adobe Photoshop

If you're already familiar with the basic tools and techniques used in Adobe Photoshop, but want to improve your skills, then intermediate lessons are for you. You'll learn to create increasingly complex images and handle more challenging retouches, as your instructor introduces you to more tips and tricks of editing in Photoshop. Your tutor might choose to cover the following topics:

  • RAW images
  • Master Photoshop selection tools
  • Introduction to a variety of photo effects
  • Multi-exposure images
  • Apply color and composition theory

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Adobe Photoshop

If you already know your way around Photoshop and are familiar with many tricks, but want to master the software, advanced lessons are for you. In these lessons, you'll have the opportunity to work with a professional to learn subtle techniques and complex tools to create masterful artwork. Subjects taught in advanced classes depend greatly on each student's individual interests and goals, but your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Digital painting
  • Simple video editing
  • Healing and retouching images
  • Create custom brushes
  • Integrating Photoshop with other Adobe CS software

How to Find an Adobe Photoshop Teacher Near You

If you're ready to learn to master the art of Photoshopping photos, a private teacher will help you along the way! Luckily, finding an Adobe Photoshop tutor on TakeLessons is easy! A quick search will direct you to pages of highly qualified and experienced teachers who offer lessons online and in-person. Be sure to browse through several teacher profiles and read reviews left by other students before choosing the teacher who's right for you. 

The price of Adobe Photoshop lessons varies, but most instructors base rates on the length and frequency of lessons. With so many teachers to choose from, you'll be able to find a professional whose pricing fits your budget and whose classes fit your schedule. You'll find that paying for private lessons is an investment that pays of fast. You'll learn new techniques and tools quickly and improve your editing skills after just the first lesson.
