  Learn Photoshop Now - A great video course for Photoshop users Learn Photshio Now

Learn Photoshop Now

 

To get the best albums, your photos need to be edited well.  Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements) is, of course, the most popular editor.  I believe that the best way to learn Photoshop is to see it in action - and these videos have consistently had the best reviews.  I recommend them.

And at $97 (£47 or €67) I think for all this material it is very good value for money. 

Bonus for those of us from the 'old country'  - David Peters is a (north country) Brit!
