The beginning course lasts 5 hours and the advanced course lasts 6.5 hours.
During the 25-hour Adobe Photoshop CS5 and CS6 training course, students follow along online with Amadou Diallo, a professional photographer, author, image editor, and teacher. Diallo first imparts basic skills, such as image editing, retouching, and blend modes, then moves on to more advanced topics, from vector shapes and smart objects to using Adobe Bridge. When finished, students will have an understanding of the fundamentals and of Photoshop CS5 and CS6.
Available on any computer with Internet access, Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox browser, and audio output, the in-depth courses move at the student’s own pace. A support hotline gives learners additional guidance and a second set of ears for practicing dramatic monologues. Students will receive course login information and instructions via email within three business days of the start date, after which they can access their courses any time of day over a 12-month period.
