Whether you’re a local wedding photographer looking to enhance your final images, a graphic designer working for a major advertising firm, or just someone who’s interested in sharpening up some old family photos, Adobe Photoshop can get the job done.

But like any tool, Photoshop is only as effective as its user. If you understand the ins and outs of this powerful editing suite, you’ll be able to perform magic on photos and videos alike. Without this knowledge, however, even opening a file correctly may be a struggle.

That’s why my Photoshop class is essential for anyone who wants to know how to use Adobe’s premiere image editing software effectively.

Whether you’re a complete newcomer or someone who merely needs to brush up on some of its more powerful (and complicated) features, this class will offer everything you need to take your Photoshop game to the next level.

And since this class breaks everything down into simple, easy-to-find categories, you can even treat it like a comprehensive reference guide. Do you need to learn how to retouch a flawed photo? Remove red eye? Work with layers and special effects? It’s all here and easily accessible. This is the perfect class for…

Amateurs and hobbyists who are interested in editing with Photoshop but have no experience whatsoever.

Students who have the basic down but want to take their knowledge and experience up a notch.

Graphic designers who want to master the industry’s leading photo editor and get a leg up in their career.

Portrait, landscape, wedding, and fashion photographers who are hoping to build an unparalleled portfolio - and increase interest from clients.

Anyone who’s interested in learning any aspect of Photoshop and how it interfaces with the rest of Adobe’s Creative Cloud.

In other words, no matter where you are right now, this class can help you push your editing skills forward. All you need to get started is Adobe Photoshop. And though many of the skills you’ll learn will transfer to previous editions, you’ll get the most out of the class by taking full advantage of the latest Adobe CC version.

So, how do you know that I can help you? Simple. I have hundreds of Photoshop students that have built and refined their image editing skills over the past 5 years. I’ve worked with people from a variety of backgrounds, industries, and experience levels. And together, we’ve helped them achieve the skills they’ve always wanted.

I’m not just interested in throwing a lot of information at you. I want to guide you from your current skill and experience level to the place where you’ve always dreamed of being. A place where working in Photoshop becomes intuitive - like an expert chef in a well-designed kitchen. I’ll teach you the tools, techniques, and tips you need to become a Photoshop pro.

So, are you ready to put the things you’ve been imagining onto the screen? If so, then let’s get started…

Junia has been wonderful reteaching my 16 year old brother Spanish 1 because his classes were abysmal during the covid shutdowns. She emails me what they worked on after every class so that we can practice at home and is incredibly flexible with scheduling so he has been able to get a bunch of classes in right before he starts Spanish 2. Junia has definitely lessened the stress of the upcoming school year and we will continue to have her assist him while he gets up to speed.

Junia is very professional, encouraging, and patient. We conducted our session in French only. This helped me to "absorb" the language. She also was very organized in her methodology of teaching. I look very forward to our next session (class)!

Excellent teaching. My daughter had her first lesson today and said "I now understand a whole topic in Chemistry that I haven't understood all year in school." Very clear instruction that was very helpful. Highly recommended.

This was absolutely a great class for learning Photoshop. Junia is very knowledgeable and provided great references and comparisons. She made it easy for beginners to understand. I came into the course with very minimal knowledge of photoshop and have learned a lot of information and skills that will be beneficial in the future as I continue to learn more about the program. I will definitely come back for more lessons.

I love Junia's teaching style, she is very thorough and helps you understand why you are doing and saying what! I have learned so much during the few online live classes that I have taken with her. I've tried other instructors as well but her sessions are best for me! You can tell she has the heart and passion for truly helping others succeed. She motivates me to do better!

Junia was very savvy on all the tools that produce a great online class experience. We ended up using (in addition to the web browser) team viewer so that we both could operate on my screen at the same time. Junia could show me and then I would do it as well. Junia was very patient and thorough.
