Architect and Engineer knows that you need a good, solid foundation
to build anything on. Most people know this as well - a decent foundation
in childhood will carry you far in adulthood.
then why do so many institutions not follow the same principle with
their courses? Most courses out there will teach you how to do this
or that in Photoshop, but they never bother with the foundation.
and time again I meet up with old students, who inform me that after
attending our Photoshop Fundamentals course, they suddenly understand
third party internet or book-related tutorials. They actually know
what the work is about, as opposed to just following step-by-step
instructions without being clear about what they are in fact doing.
course was specifically designed with the Photoshop Foundation in
mind. Once you know and understand how Photoshop works, you will be
empowered to do so much more by yourself, and not only be reliant
on specific procedures as teached in other courses.
you will learn about the basic building blocks of Photoshop, how it
works, and why it works. Once you have completed this course, you
will have a basic understanding of the pillars on which this amazing
tool stands - it's foundation. And we all know how important a good
a hungry man a fish, and you feed him for one day. Teach a hungry
man how to fish, and you feed him for life.
