Virtual Summits offer free education
Since May 2020 I have organized a series of online conferences known as Virtual Summits. These 5-day events feature 15 - 20 world-class instructors teaching topics such as Photoshop and Lightroom. Each event offers a free pass for limited-time viewing and a paid VIP Pass for lifetime access to the class recordings. You can get more info by clicking the button below.
Learn Photoshop from Me
My membership-based learning site offers hundreds of tutorials and courses, and live Q&A sessions.
I am available for virtual and on-site corporate training. Contact me for more details.
YouTube and more
You can see more of my training videos and classes on sites like CreativeLive and KelbyOne, and on my YouTube Channel. Some of these videos are "older" but in typical Photoshop fashion, many of the techniques shown in these videos and classes are still applicable to today's versions.
