Unit time: 3 hours
Intro to Photoshop
Photoshop has long been an industry-standard tool for professional web designers. Unfortunately, the learning curve is quite steep, since it's a powerful program with a range of functions suited for other purposes — like image and video editing. In this unit, we've curated videos and put together some simple practice exercises to help you get up to speed with the basics of Photoshop in a web design context.
Unlike other units in this course, you won't share any of the exercises you work on with your mentor. They're intended as solo practice exercises to help you get acquainted with the software. By the end of the unit, you will be familiar enough with Photoshop to complete all the projects in Design 101.
