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).
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.
