Learn by Video offers you a refreshingly new and fun way to learn Adobe Photoshop CS4 and will help you get certified along the way!
This innovative new product from Adobe Press combines hours of interactive video and a printed reference to teach you the basics of Photoshop CS4. As the official training for the Adobe Certified Associate exam, Learn by Video teaches you not only the fundamentals of Photoshop, but also how to use the program to create effective forms of digital communication.
You’ll get an incredible 19 hours of video, presented by experienced instructors Gabriel Powell and Mikkel Aaland, as well as lesson files, assessment quizzes and review materials. The DVD is bundled with a printed booklet that provides a topic-by-topic guide to the video. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic, and to bookmark individual topics for later review. Project files used in the lessons are included on the disk so the students can practice what they’ve learned, and review questions help to reinforce freshly gained knowledge.
