Watch the 13-Hour Photoshop Training Course Now for Free!

Here’s an incredible new resource that you should not miss – and even bookmark/share… It’s a compre­hensive professional training course on how to best use Adobe Photoshop from O’Reilly’s InfiniteSkills – normally costing US$130, but now completely FREE with no catch. It includes 13 hours of high-quality instruction broken out into 23 chapters with 166 video tutorials (in HD or SD), covering all major aspects of Photoshop – the world’s most popular graphics and photo editing software – at no cost!

This premium course breaks down the features and tools of Photoshop into easily-understood parts, increasing your ability to understand and retain the information. You will learn how to: work with Camera Raw images, organize your files using Adobe Bridge, create and manage color in an image, utilize layers in Photoshop, work with filters, and much more. Expert instructor Andy Anderson shares his favorite tips and techniques and shows you how to use key tools and features such as dodge & burn, brushes, cloning & healing, the magic wand, levels & curves, and type. (See below for a comprehensive listing of all topics covered.)

You can browse, jump, and watch anywhere you want within the set of lessons – so you’ll get a lot out of this top-flight class whether you’re already using Photoshop CC or if you’re an absolute beginner. Downloadable working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the course. You will be granted full access to these tutorials so you can learn them at your own pace. Certificates of Completion are also now available.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Adobe says they will be removing this course soon! To enroll now, you must use this workaround.

If you’re not yet running CC and are still using a previous version of Photoshop CS, then there’s an older course edition that you can use for CS5 or CS6 (also 13 hours) – sorry, that course is no longer offered. For customers with Photoshop Elements, see this overview class (1 hour). Both of those are also free.

If you don’t already have Photoshop CC installed on your computer but would like to get going today (and work side-by-side with the lessons), you can easily download the free trial for Windows or Mac – then install, run, and start your training… The trial is fully-functional for 30 calendar days, which should be plenty of time to get through the tutorials. After that time, check out Adobe’s Photography Bundle, which gives you the latest versions of both Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC – desktop tools which used to cost over $1,000 – for only $9.99/month.

And if you also like learning in print, then you’ll love this great set of free Adobe books you can download (over 20 different titles to choose from).  Another helpful resource for understanding the product is the official manual – free PDF documentation – for Photoshop (or any other Adobe application).

Here are a few user reviews for the Photoshop CC course:

“Thank you very much for putting all of this together. This was a great course that I totally would recommend!”

“I loved this course, I learned something new in every chapter. Andy Anderson was an awesome teacher using simple language for us to understand. Thanks”

“Helpful even for someone who has been using Photoshop for years.”

“This tutorial is excellent. It is well-ordered, consistent, and detailed properly. I have reviewed hundreds of dollars and hours worth of resources: This O’Reilly production is the best. The tone, pace, and content work perfectly. Only wish I had it sooner but can’t wait to get some creative work done now, and so much more efficiently!”

“Great stuff, have been using Photoshop for a while, but now some of the buttons make sense to me. Still have a little while to go, but am enjoying the ride. Many thanks for this.”

  1. Mr.Thang

    i can not see anything, it’s not working right now

  2. Mr.Thang
    • Yes, we just verified and the free Photoshop course does continue to work – but you need to use this recommended workaround in order to access it:

       1. Click on the course’s intro loading page here first.

       2. Choose “Sign in with Adobe”, and then enter your Adobe ID and password. Check the “Stay signed in” box.

       3. Now come back here and again visit the main free 13-hour Photoshop course link.

       4. Here’s the key! If the video doesn’t come up, then go to the address bar of your browser and change the link’s text to be “course” instead of “courselanding” – and then hit the Enter key. Log in again if asked. You should now see the first lesson of the course ready to play!


      If it still doesn’t work, then try with a different browser, or another computer or device, or clear your browser’s cache & cookies and then retry 1-2-3-4.

      Make sure to follow the instructions carefully, or post back if something is unclear.

      The reason some people are having difficulty accessing the course is because Adobe is planning to take it down, unfortunately. But it’s still up, for now – and can be accessed using the workaround above. We have tested it multiple times with different browsers (including just now), and it does work.

  3. Jane

    This is really great! This will surely help amateurs get started with their Photoshop experience. Do you have training courses for other post-processing software?

  4. Katie

    yep, had to change from “courselanding” to “course” in the URL – now it works. Looks like i need to get on this today LOL – thanks

  5. Shila Mahmud

    Does it still exist?

  6. Kevin

    @ProDesignTools

    Great, thanks – that worked :)

  7. Peretz Olkin

    I have taken two courses with a focus on Photoshop, and at the urging of my instructor I subscribed to the CC2015 PS & LR. Having this opportunity to download this free Photoshop course is an answer to a prayer to continue learning new skills and sharpening what I feel I have already learned. Once I get to my desktop, I will act on it. Thank you Adobe!
