Bath, Banes, United Kingdom, 2011/07/14 - Future, the special-interest media group, has unveiled Teach Yourself Photoshop – a new premium product for the iPad from the makers of Digital Camera and Practical Photoshop magazines. LSE: FUTR
Teach Yourself Photoshop is a complete video course in Adobe’s market-leading photo-editing software Photoshop, all contained in one simple-to-use app.
Priced at £11.99, it’s a fantastic resource offering more than four hours of step-by-step, hands-on training in Photoshop Creative Suite and Elements.
The app is a comprehensive 10-part guide consisting of 60 different easy-to-follow lessons covering Basic, Intermediate and Advanced – unlocking all the secrets of making and manipulating fantastic imagery.
Users learn everything from how to transfer your photographs from camera to computer, to techniques for perfecting skin tone and repairing old photos, to building a website gallery and publishing a photo book.
Geoff Harris, Editor of Digital Camera, says: “Teach Yourself Photoshop is one of our most popular sections, so I’m sure this app will also be a huge hit. Photoshop can be intimidating at first, but our videos explain everything you need to know in a friendly, straightforward style.”
The app contains links to all the files used in the tutorials, which can be downloaded to Mac or PC for free from photoradar.com/teach-yourself-photoshop.
Teach Yourself Photoshop follows the success of Future’s Digital Camera Photographer of the Year and Improve Your Landscape Photography apps, as well as Digital Camera and Practical Photoshop’s monthly digital editions, available through Zinio.
Stuart Anderton, Group Publishing Director, says: “The iPad is a great medium for learning to use software as you can have it next to your computer while you work, and video is the easiest way to absorb complex techniques. Future is a leader in creating training videos of this type, and it’s exciting to have them available in a new medium.”
Future is a leading digital publisher, creating bespoke content for the iPad, Kindle and other platforms. 99 of its titles are also available digitally via Zinio, with more being added all the time. Future recently became the first magazine publisher to win the coveted Consumer Digital Publisher of the Year Award at the Association of Online Publishers Awards. Future also won the Grand Prix Award at the event.
Teach Yourself Photoshop is in the App Store today priced at £11.99.
