For a long time I’ve felt pretty confident in my Photoshop abilities. I originally learned to use Photoshop when I was in high school. I think I took every computer course my high school offered. When I ran out of classes to take at my high school, I enrolled in a program that allowed me to take courses at the local technical college tuition free during my senior year of high school. It was here I got my first exposure to Photoshop.
Since then I have taken a half dozen graphic design courses in college and used Photoshop from pre-Creative Suite Photoshop 5.5 through all of the Creative Suite packages to the current CS6 package. I thought I had a pretty good handle on Photoshop and everything it could do. At least that was until I discovered “You Suck at Photoshop”
“You Suck at Photoshop” follows Donnie as he tries to cope with life through Photoshop. Donnie’s dry, sarcastic commentary isn’t just funny, but very informative too. Donnie has really shown me how much I really do suck at Photoshop. Even if you don’t care about learning Photoshop, it’s a fun video series to watch.
