Moving into a new office can be confusing. Everything's a little different... a little off ...and it often takes a bit of time to get comfortable and accustomed to where everything's located. It's funny how a revised software workspace is no different. That's why we selected Adobe Certified Expert and seasoned trainer Jim Kanter to demystify Photoshop's new workspace and then expertly help you discover all of the tools, their options and locations in PS CS6.
First off, Jim gets you accustomed to Photoshop's "factory default" settings. He then moves on to show you how to custom-tailor workspaces to meet the needs of all your projects. Along the way, he teaches you his best practices in managing these flexible workspace configurations to make the best of every project that comes across your desk! Moving right along, Jim dishes up a generous helping of important keyboard shortcuts to help you significantly increase your productivity and speed up your all-important workflow.
Finally, by the time you reach the end of this course, you'll be navigating Photoshop CS6 like an expert while, at the same time, masterfully juggling multiple documents confidently and transferring content between them with ease! Most of all, the neon lights will be shining bright in PS CS6's new "dark" workspace!

I would like an index and a way to go BACK and see selected sections.
Is there a way to do that?

Great course for people just starting out like myself. Following Youtube tutorials on specific techniques only goes so far, this helped me to locate things better, and gain confidence in using the photoshop GUI

Very nice delivery and an acceptable pace. Jim went through some basic concepts and build them up to a workable rate.

Very nice. There's a lot of necessary background material which makes it a bit hard to digest but it all seems very useful material, and keeping notes and a running example of my own, helped. The last two clips give particularly nice usage examples. I do wish someone would make a photoshop course that's more like the last two clips - demonstrating by applying the ideas to an interesting workflow.

An essential course covering the basic operations of the Photoshop interface, the tool bars and shortcut keys. I'm glad to say that I gained a bit more familiarity from this course even after having the software for many years.

A necessary starting point for using Photoshop CS6 or CC, this course takes you through the key parts of the PS interface. PS has such a robust set of interface features, the methodical process of going through them step-by-step is probably the best way to introduce them. If you are using Photoshop for the first time, certain concepts lack context (i.e. the application of masks) or even the use of layers. However, the instructor avoids more advanced topics and interface elements, for the most part. A very good course, even if somewhat painstaking to get through. That is not the course's fault but owed to the richness of the PS interface.

Not what I had in mind but very good for those who are absolutely brand new to the Photoshop world.

I agree with the previous comment, I was hoping for a more practical tutorial which did not happen until the last two videos. I would not consider this a 101 course although there are some good tips.
