Many decades ago, we spent a long weekend in a Lotus 1-2-3 workshop. By Saturday night we were experts on everything spreadsheet.
Now we're wishing for a weekend seminar on Photoshop...but the local community college is putting all its continuing ed energy into...no kidding...Introduction to Facebook! Become a Mystery Shopper! Cupid's Cuisine! Sigh.
So we're finding ourselves having to create our own weekend Photoshop workshops. Fortunately, these workshops are free, and allow us to attend class in our underpants. For print tutorials, we've become quite fond of Noupe, and for video tutorials, we're growing even more enamoured of Lynda. Both resources provide intensive, Adobe-in-a-Can delivery of knowledge by folks who seem pretty knowledgable about their product. Time to dive in now. We won't come up for air until we're experts!
