Adobe Photoshop ‘0’ — Me ‘1’
Getting over photoshop fears
Once upon a time
Me: * Spends 5 full minutes gathering courage and patience to work in Photoshop.* Opens Adobe Photoshop.
10 minutes into working in Photoshop
Also me: * Naaah, tooo slow cant do it, cant do it. Mission abort.* Closes Photoshop and opens Illustrator. Hush!Exerts sigh of relief*
PHOTOSHOP for me seemed to be a very slow, irritating and frustrating experience it was basically a ‘software torture’.
One fine day I decided ‘Cant let a software win, Gotta fight this battle myself’
I went to the only place every one goes to for help YouTube. I searched for Photoshop UI tutorials and started watching tutorials just for fun. After 2 or 3 videos I opened Photoshop, this time without courage gathering exercise and started replicating what the tutorial was suggesting. Garrett Malone has a youtube channel where he has tutorials explaining each and every step.
I spent 2 days following his tutorials and heres what I was able to accomplish this in one of his tutorials. I did not follow the colours and logos that he used but added my own twists to it to make this.
Approximate time: 2 Hours
So, guys I strongly recommend you go to his channel and try his tutorials out. And, this is not any kind of advertisement its my personal experience.
