When people ask me, “Should I learn Photoshop for my website,” they often also ask, “Is Photoshop hard to learn?.” Photoshop is a vast application. To make sure that the millions of people that own Photoshop continue to update their versions and continue to renew their subscriptions to the new “Adobe Creative Cloud,” Adobe spends millions to add all kinds of new bells and whistles with each new version.
The upgrades and the wonderful things that Adobe has done with Photoshop is just wonderful.

There are so many tools, panels, settings, preferences and options available, the average person doesn’t know where to start.
