Learning To Use Adobe Photoshop

I’m super excited to start playing with Photoshop but the darn thing is scary. It comes with 14 separate applications!

I barely know how to use one of these:

Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Builder, Catalyst, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, Contribute, Bridge, Device, Extensions, Acrobat, Player, Encoder.

At least they are having fun with single word titles. What about names like Killer, Motherload, Gargamel?

Right now I feel a little lost in all of them. I can barely figure out how to do anything. It feels like I have more skills in Microsoft Paint.

The good news is I am optimistic about my skills. I’ve started learning the names of all 14 apps, which only took me a day. I even created the above graphic as a reward (took two hours).

After that I thought it would be fun to create something simple with basic colors..

Step by step, day by day I will keep getting better. I do love creating things and when I can figure out how to do something it is actually a lot of fun!
