1 Share

Popular YouTube channel TastyTuts, which specializes in graphic design and digital art tutorials, has published a free course titled 'The Complete Beginner's Guide to Adobe Photoshop.' As the name suggests, this course teaches beginners all of the basics on using Photoshop, starting with the software's interface and progressing to cover topics like rasterizing, managing layers, masking, transforming and more.

The Beginner's Guide was first published in 2014, but it's just as relevant today as it was three years ago. The course features a total of 33 episodes, each ranging from a few to 20 minutes in length, and they're accompanied by this downloadable project folder. Upon completing the series, viewers will create their own book cover from scratch.

The entire series is available through this playlist. TastyTuts also offers free video courses on several other topics, including manipulating images using Photoshop (playlist) and creating 'planet' panoramas (playlist).

Mark was in the right place at the right time, he was never any sort of technical genius or visionary- it was mostly hormones folks. Elon on the other hand, he walks the walk that Zuckerberg only wishes he had the guts to strut to.
