The Best Photoshop Video Training Courses for Absolute Newbies

New to Photoshop? Learn Photoshop easily and fast with video training! These training courses can teach you all the fundamentals of Photoshop in a couple days. Unlike going to class, these videos allow you to learn at your own pace and you can save time by learning it at home. See this roundup for a list of our favorite Photoshop video training courses.

Adobe TV & Lynda.com


This is our favorite Photoshop course! The videos are extremely high-quality and cut to the point to make learning faster. Best of all, you can watch the entire course free without any registration and that’s why it’s our #1 choice.

The most well-known video training website also has the largest selection of Photoshop courses – 36 Photoshop CS6 courses and lots more coming. Lynda.com is the best place to go if you want to excel at Photoshop. You can learn Photoshop faster and better on Lynda than you can by going to class. The videos are refined to perfection and their Premium membership gives you access to training files that you can use to follow along with the video tutorials. I highly recommend that you start a free 7-day trial (enough for you to take one or more courses).

Tuts+ Premium


This video course will turn you from a Photoshop newbie to someone able to use Photoshop tools at the back of your hand in 30 days (we think you can in less time). For $19/month, you get access to over 276 hours of courses and a lot of written tutorials and eBooks which makes this a really good value.

PhotoshopCAFE


PhotoshopCAFE is one of the oldest Photoshop websites out there run by Photoshop superstar Colin Smith. If you’re not into paying a monthly price for tutorials and want a hard copy to keep forever, Colin has a few DVDs for you. In particular, his “Photoshop CS6 for Digital Photographers” course is designed to get you started in photo editing quickly and integrating the skills into your every day workflow.

Total Training


Total Training has an essential course for Photoshop CS6 Extended which will teach you the more technical tools only available in the extended version of Photoshop. This course can be access for $24.99 monthly and you also get access to a wide selection of other design-related courses.

Video2Brain


In addition to the above, Video2Brain has a Photoshop CS6 fundamentals course by Kelly McCathran – an Adobe Certified Instructor with over 20 years of teaching experience. They also have a good collection of unique Photoshop courses for photographers such as using Nik HDR Efex, Photo Restoration, and Mastering Color Correction in Photoshop. You can buy the whole ~15 hour course straight out for $64.99 or pay $14.99 monthly and get access to all their other courses.
