Free Video Courses: Learn to Use Photoshop

Have you ever wanted to create your own artwork and express yourself visually? To get started using Photoshop, we recommend watching “Photoshop CC 2017 Essential Training: The Basics,” a ThunderCloud Training course (powered by Lynda.com) focusing on learning the Photoshop interface and how to use tools such as layers and masks. The whole course is about four and a half hours long, but you can also watch short videos for the sections that interest you.

Remember, you can always save videos to a playlist to watch later and your place is automatically saved. Enjoy the flexibility to watch Lynda.com content anytime, anywhere with offline viewing options and mobile apps. After you watch a course, be sure to check out the suggested courses to see related videos as well as more advanced and in-depth options.

If you don’t already have Adobe Photoshop, you can purchase a discounted subscription here from On the Hub. Wheaton College students have access to huge software discounts while enrolled in classes!

ThunderCloud Training, powered by Lynda.com, is a leading online learning company that helps you learn skills from industry professionals in a self-paced, convenient format. Lynda.com provides over 5,900 professional on-demand video courses that teach valuable business, software, and life skills.
