I am thinking about starting to learn Photoshop and/or Illustrator. I don't want to break the bank so is there anyone who could recommend a beginners version (just to get my feet wet). I know nothing about Photoshop so think of me as a real newbie. I saw a tutorial on ebay for about $20. (including shipping) and I don't need the software. Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated.

Jo,

 

You could take a look at VTC. I think Tawnya and Danielle have both used this to learn some things. I've also heard good things about Lynda training.

Thanks Patty,

 

I have looked into VTC and will follow the tutorials. Now my question is, is there a difference between Photoshop 6 and Photoshop Elements 6. I saw an Elements version online I am interested in but don't know if it is the real deal. I am thinking Elements is some supportive software for the original !?!

 

Thanks again,

Jo

Jo,

 

Elements is a "stripped-down" version of photoshop that retails for $99 instead of the $799 (or something, I haven't priced it lately) that the full-fledged photoshop program retails for. If you're not doing full-on graphic design, Elements will be MORE than enough for you. It takes away many of the fancier features, but you can still do most of those things with the standard tools - just in more steps.

I would recommend using Linda.com and looking for an educational version of whatever adobe program you are interested in. Those are usually found relatively cheap on craigslist. Depending on what you would like to be doing with graphic software I would also look into the option of using Fireworks. I love love love Adobe Fireworks, that being said I am also very into websites and web design and that is much more suited for web use vs. Illustrator and Photoshop really more for print. (all though you can use them for both too :)

One of my favorites is "Laughing Squid" He is informative, speaks the truth, and is wise in the knowledge of Photoshop. The tutorials are free. :D

 

 

I'll have to check this out for some of the advanced topics. Thanks!
