Photoshop Lessons

Compliments of Ray Rasmussen: Ray's Web

This first set of lessons involves some of the "basics" - things you need to know to make improvements in an image that's flawed or that's already pretty good and to get the image ready for printing.

All the lessons in this first set are very basic -- yet, you will likely experience some confusion and frustration. Don't blame yourself. Photoshop is a complicated program that takes years to learn.

I'll be changing these lessons from time to time, so if things look different than last time you looked, it's probably not your memory going bad!

If you have any problems, drop me a line and I'll help:
