Getting started with Photoshop - Interactive PDF

Technical Tutorial Published 5/6/18 Last updated on 3/2/20

I put this PDF guide together for my students as I introduced them to Adobe Photoshop. It goes through a range of skills from opening a new document through to layer styles, masks and selecting objects. In the "tools" section there are specific links to Youtube videos for each tool that go into detail about how to use that tool.

I hope you find it useful. I'll be adding some more of my resources soon, so don't forget to follow me so that you can know when new resources become available.

​Hi Mike - it doesn't look like the file for this resource was attached. Could you add it - this looks like it would be great content for educators on the Education Exchange.
