Photoshop CS5 Secrets for Digital Photographers from Software Cinema.
Using a new full version of Photoshop, even if you're an experienced user, is like learning a new language and, if you're a first-time user, it's like learning about a whole new universe--it's just staggering how much is crammed into this program. To try to learn all of the new features by just sitting in front of a monitor and experimenting is interesting, but it's also slow and very inefficient. The Software Cinema DVDs are the best of the best and they're incredibly easy to follow. Short of having a one-on-one instructor sitting beside you, it's simply the best way there is to learn Photoshop. Best of all you can pop in the DVD whenever you have a few minutes or watch it over and over again as often as you need, or when a new question pops up.
This DVD contains more than seven hours of personal instruction and the advanced interface allows you to instantly jump to any of the 64 lessons with complete control over the playback. I've been using Software Cinema DVDs for years and each one is better than the last--and if you've been reading this blog for the past two years, you know that I rarely, if ever, talk about specific products. But I answer so many questions about Photoshop each week that I know how frustrating it can be to try to learn such a massive program on your own. You'll learn more from this training DVD in 10 minutes than you would on your own in 10 hours. The disc sells for just $99 and there is currently a 15% discount being offered (I think it's through the month of May). Take a few minutes to check out the other Cinema Software training DVDs while you're on the site.
