This comprehensive 5-hour tutorial teaches you everything you need to know to confidently adjust, correct, retouch, and manipulate images and text in Photoshop CS5.
To get you up to speed fast on some of Photoshop CS5's best new tools, vetran trainer Jim Kanter starts with two fantastic Jumpstarts-start-to-finish, real-world projects that let you dive right in and use the new stuff. You'll explore the new lens correction effects, use new context-aware tools to clean up problem areas, create eye-popping 3D text with Repoussé, and transform a photograph into a painting using the new mixer brush and brush tips controls.
Next, Kanter takes you through the fundamentals of correcting, adjusting, cropping, and retouching images before moving on to advanced image-editing and photo-manipulation. A certified Adobe product expert, Kanter demonstrates important tips and tricks for working with layers, applying Photoshop's filters and effects, using Paths & Masks, working with Erasers & Brushes, and much more. Along the way, you'll learn important workflow techniques for retouching photographs to improve contrast and color, while removing unwanted artifacts from your images.
This is training from a master-someone who knows the app inside and out as a daily user, and who constantly re-invents his teaching as Photoshop evolves. If you're new to Photoshop, sit back and enjoy the best day you'll ever spend with an amazing piece of software. If you're a veteran to Photoshop, we're confident you'll be blown away, as we were, by the amount of stuff you never knew about the software, demonstrated with ease and humor by one of the best educators in the field.
As always, this is a comprehensive tutorial, but you don't need to watch it from beginning to end. Use the search functions and detailed menus to quickly find the topics you want- that's the essence of Nonlinear Educating!

A good tutorial delivered in a more monotone precise manner but all the information required is there.

Just purchased the tutorial for Photoshop 5. This application has a steep learning curve made much easier by your excellent instructors. Give me on-line tutorials over printed manuals any day. Good work!

Have watched a few tutorials so far and they are informative. However, the quality of the sound could be improved.

Excellent tutorials, the order of presentation could be looked at but that is nit picking. Very useful for someone like me who keeps forgetting stuff.

GREAT INFO! I feel like the tutorials were out of sync though, example: he uses text examples at the beginning of the series yet does not get into text creation until the end. So it can get difficult if you're trying to follow along at the same time.
Great info though. GREAT!

Jim Kanter's presentation is superlative and his voice is easy to pick up compared to Deke MacLelland who can elevate my pulse rate to 150 with one session. I'm an 80 yr old Scots pensioner who will purchase his second presentation ACR6 as soon as I can afford it.

Having just migrated to Photoshop CS5, I was delighted to find this tutorial to get me quickly up to speed. Thanks for pulling back the veil and opening up some of the powerful features of CS5 in an easy to grasp, yet powerful, format!

Just a couple of things to be honest.
First, an awesome tutorial, plenty of knowledge very well explained.
Second. horrible audio equalization.
