4 Free Photoshop Tutorials for Absolute Beginners


4 Free Photoshop Tutorials for Absolute Beginners

If you are brand new to Photoshop and are struggling to figure out what you are looking at, the following tutorials will help you on your way to becoming comfortable with simple tasks or projects.


Photoshop has a lot going on and there is a lot to learn, but rather than be overwhelmed and frustrated, with just a few simple tutorials you'll be well on your way to accomplishing whatever you're setting out to create. The following list should only take an hour or two and will be well worth your time if you are brand new to PS and feeling super confused by the whole thing.

1. Adobe Basics for Beginners - a series of video tutorials direct from Adobe that explain the very basics of the Photoshop software, from opening and saving documents to getting familiar with the work area. If you've never opened Photoshop before or just find it confusing and overwhelming this is a great place to start.

2. Dock or Float Your Windows - this helpful tutorial walks you through the difference of docked or floating canvas spaces and how to set that up. By default when you open a new document in PS it will be docked (attached to the top of the work area, and each new doc you open will do so in a series of tabs). Floating the docs (exactly as they sound) can make it much easier to work between docs and is often a preferred method to work with.

3. Photoshop Layers 101 - the layers palette is the powerhouse of PS so understanding everything that goes on here and all the options available is pretty crucial to working with the program. Once you master this you are well on your way to working adeptly in photoshop. 

4. Adding Fonts in Photoshop - this is a pretty basic tutorial, but if you're unsure of what you're doing with installing fonts then this will have you rockin' it in no time.

The above tutorials apply almost exactly to the free online editor Photopea, which is a photoshop file compatible program!
