Welcome to The Complete Adobe Photoshop Mastery Course for Beginners, where you'll learn the basics of Adobe Photoshop in a fun, hands-on way. This course is designed to teach you the most important elements of beginning Photoshop without the frustration or stress that often comes with learning new software.

If you are brand new to Photoshop or have tried to learn Photoshop and struggled with it, this course is for you. The course starts at the very beginning with how to purchase Photoshop and get it on your computer. It moves forward in an easy-to-follow, logical way, building your skills up until you feel confident using Photoshop for your photo editing. Within an hour you'll be using Photoshop to crop, fix blemishes, and cut out and move parts of your images. And from there, your knowledge will keep rapidly growing through the rest of the course.

I promise you'll enjoy learning to master Photoshop.

The course is recorded using Photoshop CC on a PC, but it works fine if you have an older CS version of Photoshop, too. I also include tips for using a Mac.

Here's how the course is broken down:

First, we get familiar with the Photoshop program and interface. We learn to open and save images, and learn where the most frequently used tools are located.

Second, we start using the most important tools, like the move tool, the crop tool, the brush tool, and the healing brush tool. We also learn how to use layers so that we can work non-destructively on our photos. (In the course, I'll explain what that means and why it makes your life easier).

Finally, we do a bunch of hands-on projects in Photoshop.

  • Whiten a subjects teeth.

  • Crop an image bigger (did you know you could do that? It's pretty cool).

  • Create a square social media profile picture that would work on YouTube, Instagram or Facebook.

  • Brighten up dull, dark images.

  • Learn how to add or reduce redness in a subject's face (so they don't look like a ghost or a cherry).

  • Make an image black and white.

  • Switch out the sky in a mountain scene (we can choose clouds, blue sky, or even the northern lights).

  • Combine two images into one (we take a cappuccino mug and set it in a field of flowers, just for fun!).

  • So much more.

When you are finished with this course, I promise you'll feel confident using Photoshop and the many tools and options that it offers. You'll be able to do valuable work in Photoshop, and have fun while doing it.

Here's my challenge to you. Jump in and watch 20 minutes of this course. If you're not excited to learn Photoshop at the end of that 20 minutes, then go back to watching funny cat videos on YouTube. Once you see what you can accomplish with this course, I know you'll be hooked on Photoshop for life.

I promise that I can teach you how to master Photoshop. If that sounds good to you, then I look forward to seeing you in the course.

  • Initial Setup and Swift Basics
  • Ints, Strings, Classes, and Collection Types
  • Control Flow
  • Error Handling


A Modern Language Evolved from Objective C

Swift is a multi-paradigm programming language developed by Apple for use with iOS and OS X. Designed to replace Objective C, work began on Swift in 2010 and the first mobile app was debuted in June 2014 at the Worldwide Developers Conference. Despite its goal of replacing Objective C, Swift is capable of working alongside the more dated Objective C language while using the Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks.

Swift is built with the LLVM compiler included in Xcode 6 beta, and uses the Objective-C runtime, allowing Objective-C, Objective-C++ and Swift code to run within a single program. During it’s debut, Swift was described as “Objective C without the C” by Apple’s VP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi.


Contents and Overview

Through 140+ video lectures and 11 hours of content, you will be lead through setting up Swift locally, the basics of the language, how it compares to other common languages (including Objective C), and how to get started on new projects.

The course is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to Swift, so that you can begin experimenting right away. Upon completion, you will understand the foundations of Swift code and will be able to develop custom applications. You will also get experience working with Xcode's new .playground file. By enrolling in this course you will be months ahead of other developers attempting learn the new Swift programming language by navigating Apple's 500-page instructional document.

Course material is regularly refreshed to include all of the newest updates and information, and since you’re granted lifetime access upon registering, you can rely on this course to keep your Swift skills on the cutting edge.

Welcome to the crash course on how to use Mac Operating System (commonly referred to as Mac OS or Macos ).

If you have recently switched from Windows to Mac OS X on an Apple Macbook or iMac, the differences between the two operating systems might seem confusing, frustrating and even a bit overwhelming at first.

I can totally resonate with you since I have been in your shoes. When I bought my first Macbook after using Windows for many many years, it took me many hours just to learn how to Copy & Paste text (without the help of Google).

Learning other basic functionalities in the new Macbook was a nightmare. It was a steep learning curve and took me months of browsing blogs and Youtube videos before I became comfortable with my Mac.

So I created this course to help BEGINNERS and INTERMEDIATE USERS of the Mac OS to improve their macos user experience. I have packed this course with whatever I have learnt during the last few years on my Apple Macbook.

And the cool thing is, you can learn all of it in this course, without looking for Mac os Catalina etc. tutorials on Youtube, Apple Support etc.

Mac computers are wonderful, stable, carefully designed and well built - no doubt about that. And it's safe to assume that almost always, there is an easy and cool way to do things in Mac OS X.

But ...

Many people think that with Mac computers and Macbooks, one needs to purchase many extra software packages, which come built in with Windows computers.

If you have the same views, I have a great news for you! Your Mac is full of tools and functionalities which you probably have never had a chance to explore, so you're missing out on a lot of cool stuff. For example, you get many free apps, e.g. iMovie, Keynote, Numbers, Pages etc.

In this hands on course, I have carefully put together many Macos tricks and best practices in the form of short video tutorials. It took me years (well, literally!) to learn them, but with this course, you can learn these Macos tricks super fast with minimal effort.

These wonderful tips and hacks will save your time and energy and will have a big impact on your productivity. This course will take you from a beginner / intermediate to an advanced Mac OS user in no time!

After taking this course, you would be able to navigate the Mac OS X with swipes and keyboard shortcuts like a breeze, and would be able to minimize Macos Catalina etc. slowdowns like a boss. I will even teach you how to do basic video editing in iMovie.

This course will be regularly updated and I will be adding more macos tips as I explore them!

Cheers,

Your time is valuable. Siri spends it wisely.

These few minutes opened my eyes . . .

I was driving and was crazy busy. I had just got my iPhone and thought I'd try Siri out. I told Siri to find the Patagonia store in Chicago, since I needed to return a jacket.

She found it.

Then I asked her to call the store. She called it. In minutes my return problem was solved.

Then I had her schedule appointments and reminders for me.

Then she gave me directions home.

In those few minutes, I started to understand all Siri could do for me. So I researched EVERYWHERE- books, videos, articles on all the things Siri can do. I was amazed.

I showed it to others.

They were amazed.

They  had no idea Siri could do all that.

So, I created the ultimate course all about Siri.

It's guaranteed that you'll learn something you'll use.

Discover how Siri can greatly boost your productivity, organize your busy life and make life a heck of a lot easier.

Time is Money. Have Siri save you time.

More about the course:

Are you too busy, trying to get caught up?

Would you like to be more organized?

Do you forget things and even appointments?

Would you like an assistant to help out?

You have that! Siri can:

Read your texts to you.

Take dictation and answer those texts.

Figure out the tip.

Schedule appointments for you.

Be like your own personal D.J., playing songs and stations as you wish.

That's just a sampling of things you'll learn in this fast-paced course.

Siri will help juggle your busy life.

This is something you'll probably use every day. Get this course and Siri- your own personal assistant / private secretary can help you:

Get more done.

Boost your productivity.

Make your life a heck of a lot easier.

Even if you already use Siri, trust me, you'll be amazed at how much more Siri can do for you. No longer will you forget appointments and errands, or spend extra time making calls, and texting.

She'll streamline your life; make it more organized, and fun.

Who can use a little more of that help?

Siri is your own efficient virtual assistant, drama-free private concierge, and super brain, always at your fingertips.

Siri is available on all the Apple Watches, iPhone 4s or later, iPad with Retina display, iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation), and even your Apple computers with Sierra OS or higher. (OS 10.12.6 or higher.)

If you get or have an Apple watch, Siri is there for you too.

This course will help you avoid “texting neck" since Siri will be doing most of your work. Did you know hunching over to work on your smart device stresses your spine, eventually causing miserable back and neck pain, along with wrinkling the neck?

Siri is a vital business tool, schedule organizer, homework helper, & concierge.

This is the ultimate course to master Siri and become a Siri Ninja.

Make your life more carefree, clear, efficient.

Time is your most valuable commodity. Save it with Siri.

Basics of Linux and MacOS Shell

This course is a concise crash-course into Linux and MacOS Shell. Although it is short, it introduces you to a number of commands to interact with files and directories, and build a chain of commands into pipelines: ls, cp, chmod, grep, find, less, head and even more. Whether you are in an urgent need to get familiar with common shell commands, or want to take your time and discover command line interface, this course will help you to get started.

What is Command Line Interface (CLI, or just Shell)? Wikipedia says, it is "a means of interacting with a computer program where the user (or client) issues commands to the program in the form of successive lines of text (command lines). A program which handles the interface is called a command language interpreter or shell (computing)". Command Line gives you a great control over functions of the operating system, as well as the hardware of your computer, such as a network or a sound card. Many end user applications have a user interface that simplifies user experience, and if you want a better flexibility, the Command Line gives you this option.

Command Line Interface is the core of the operating system, it gives you access to the lowest level of interactions with it. This course will use Linux/Unix interface which is also available in MacOS: most of the commands used in the course are also available in MacOS.

Important note! If the course is too fast or too slow, you can change the speed of the video up to your liking. Click at the bottom of the video next to the "Play" button or at the top if you are on mobile.

Note to MacOS users: bonus material requires installation of Midnight Commander, please refer to your favorite search engine on how to install it.

"It's a really basic course, but it's good enough to give you and idea about the things that you'll need to learn later on about this subject" - Elia Pari, Udemy Student

"...

All very useful." - Gregg Powell, Udemy Student

This is a command line tutorial conducted in the OS X command line. Because of OSX’s unix heritage, much of the info here is also useful in other unix inspired systems, like the Linux command line.

What is OS X command Line ?

The command line is the ultimate seat of power on your computer. Using the command line, you can perform amazing feats of wizardry and speed, taming your computer and getting it to do precisely what you want. The command line is a text interface for your computer. Its a programe that takes in commands, which it passes on to the computer's operating system to run. From the command line you can navigate through file and folders on your computer, just as you would with finder on  MAC OS or windows explorer on windows. The difference is that command line is fully text-based.

The advantage of using the command line is its power. you can run programs, write scripts to automate common task and combine simple commnads to handle difficlut tasks - making it an important programming tool.

In this course you'll learn the essential tools for feeling comfortable and getting stuff done. 

> how to open the terminal and configure and customize a session. 
> how to compare Finder actions with commands, add functions to the system, and get system information. 
> how to manage the system, find, identify, and manage data, and use Directory services. 
> how to manage profiles and keychains, install packages, and process media with commands unique to Apple. 
> learn about the Apple System Log.

A programmer who doesn't know the command line is like a writer who can't use a pen. Knowing the command line is essential for really applying almost any programming language today. Sign up for the course and give it a shot. A full refund awaits you if you don't feel more confident and powerful inside of that Terminal window.
