This innovative product from Adobe Press combines an incredible 21 hours of high-quality HD video training and a full-color printed reference to teach the fundamentals of Photoshop CS5 as well as the basic principles of graphic design.

Structured around the objectives of the 'Visual Communication using Adobe Photoshop CS5' exam at the Adobe Certified Associate level, this Adobe-approved product teaches how to edit images with precise selection control and create dramatic visual effects with Photoshop.

Experienced instructors Kelly McCathran, Scott Citron and Ted LoCascio present the video instruction, complete with lesson files, assessment quizzes and review materials. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic and also bookmark individual sections for later review.

The unique Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to work alongside in Photoshop. Project files used in the lessons are included on the disc so viewers can practice what they've learned, and interactive review questions help reinforce freshly gained knowledge. The DVD-ROM is bundled with a printed book that provides supplemental material to enhance the video training.

Selected videos can be downloaded for viewing on iPhones, iPods, and other compatible mobile devices. Learn by Video: More hours of high-quality video training than other comparable video products, and better priced too!

CS5 Video Training June 9, 2011
Kelly is very knowledgeable about the subject matter. She is also very easy to follow; It is very thorough and much easier to follow than anything else I have tried. I love it. I highly recommend this video tutorial, it's easy to understand and in a couple of hours you'll want to retouch all your photos just like I did.
