get grounded in photoshop

Let’s start at the very beginning! A very good place to start!

Ever wonder about how to get rid of unwanted objects? Or if someday you would be able to “Photoshop that” for someone? (It is no secret that “Photoshop it” is a verb now-a-days!) This course starts from the very beginning to help you get a strong base for understanding how to work with Adobe Photoshop.

Never even opened Photoshop? No problem. Through easy-to-follow video tutorials, you will learn how to open and work with files in a way you’ve only read about on Pinterest. Grab the full-time student experience to have weekly feedback, which will help you stay on course and learning quickly.

Understand the difference between inches and pixels, layer masks versus erasing, and how to get rid of that unwanted object in the background of your favorite image.

Like most photographers with kids, Meagan became fascinated (obsessed) with photographing her children from second she laid eyes on them, and loves helping others hone their photography skills to better capture their own children.

In addition to teaching Get Grounded in Photoshop, Meagan is our official Operations Queen. She keeps everyone organized, scheduled, and on track with blogging, Happy Hour, Extra Credit, communication, customer service, and anything else that keeps TPE operating on a day to day basis just for you!
