You will never learn photoshop in a few days... I've been using it almost daily for 8 years now and I still find new things here and there. The possibilities of such a dynamic program are endless.

Hello friends, I love photography and i want to learn photoshop in few days. Could u suggest me the site were I can learn fast and get good tutorials.

I approached Photoshop like I did programming. First, I learned the basics, such as terminology, quick keys, things like that. That way, when you're reading about it, you understand what you're reading.

Then, I browsed several photoshop forums and such, seeing the opinions of people on the various works. Tried to get a good understanding and grasp on what was liked, and what was /vomit.

After I kinda knew what looked good, I began experimenting. I simply opened photoshop and used the random things I learned, keeping in mind what the different buttons were and such. Everything I created sucked, more than it does now, but basically, I couldn't make anything work right. I knew what I was going for, I just had no practice or guidance.

So I finally started looking for tutorials, and following them verbatim. After a while of doing this, I'd mix it up a bit, add random things that I had used before, and finally I'm now to the point where I don't have to follow tutorials. I still haven't got the artist eye down yet, so keeping frequent in photoshop is necessary.

And I did it all with Google :P. So, just search the random words. I'd say, you could have an ok understanding of photoshop within a week, but it'll take you several months before you produce anything really creative worthy of critiquing.

Not great, simplistic, a bit blurry, but it works ^.^.

I suggest that instead of trying google for written tutorials, you better try youtube for video tutorials. It will help you alot. Secondly, Photoshop is not a small app. I have been working in Adobe Photoshop since 2000 and I still some times search on Youtube for tutorials. Thats because photoshop keeps changing, each new version has new features.

I have just finished a part time night school learning Photoshop,
it was well worth the sixty quid.
check out your local colleges.

its all about being picky and sticking at it
finish a design, image find a fault and do something better next time
its a learning curve like with everything

Of cause, it's really very difficult to learn Photoshop in few days.
However I advise you to practice as often as possible, because to my mind, it's the only possible way to learn anything. I mean, launch an editor and try to work with photo, etc.
I would also like to say that there are many tutorials on this issue in Youtube, find them, and they'll help you,

This is a great site for you to learn Photoshop fast and that is through videos.

This site has nothing but video tutorials and I learn Photoshop in under a week total. Go to http://www.Lynda.com

You can search on google for a FREE 7 day trial and use that to learn photoshop in a week.

Let me do a quick search for you: http://www.pshizzy.com/2009/01/free-7-day-trial-from-lyndacom/

Hi, everyone. I’ve read much about a new plugin for Photoshop – Divine plugin. However there is no information about it at Adobe’s official site. Have anyone tried Divine? It seems to be very useful for designers and developers.

I just kept making things with it, doing a quick tutorial here and there if i liked a certain style and such. Think repetition is the best way to learn key tools, hot keys etc. The thing i felt made me learn the most was 'free-styling' just experimenting making banners, web sites etc. and finding out what looked good and what looked bad. Like most people here I've used it for years but still learn something new every time i open it.

Good luck :)
