Adobe Photoshop is the de facto standard for high-end image creation and manipulation. Introduction to Adobe Photoshop training, hosted by Armada Training Solutions, covers key tools and features, including colour correction, working with layers, compositing images and preparing images for use on the Web.

This course is a hands-on and practical training. The trainers will teach you the necessary theory then demonstrate techniques step-by-step, and you practice the techniques taught on your computer.
Remote training lets you join a live Photoshop course from your place of work or home.
You can:

-See and hear our trainer and other virtual delegates participating in the Photoshop training.
-Allow our trainer and the other virtual delegates to see and hear you (if you have a webcam, and you’re agreeable).
-Interact by speaking, using chat, or raising your ‘virtual hand’ if you need assistance.
-Share your screen with our trainer to show them what you’re seeing.

Your experience will be as close as possible to actually being in the classroom…
-The training will follow the same syllabus as our classroom-based Introduction to Photoshop courses.
-It will be presented by the same Adobe Certified Instructors.
-We’ll post you a training guide, and send you all the information you need to participate in the training. We’ll even post you a headset and microphone if you need one.
-You’ll receive the same e-certificate confirming successful completion as classroom-based delegates. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.
-You’ll carry out exercises in Photoshop, assisted by our trainer. If you haven’t got Photoshop installed on your computer, we’ll send you a link to fully-functional trial software that you can download and install.
-You’ll be entitled to 30 days’ email support from your trainer.

This is an Adobe Accredited Remote training course.

To take into account

- To gain a thorough grounding in Adobe Photoshop. - To teach delegates to use Photoshop to produce professional-standard images for use on the web.

This course is suitable for: - Newcomers to Photoshop. - Novice users with limited Photoshop experience. - Suitable for both Windows and Mac users.

No prior Photoshop knowledge is necessary. Delegates need access to a computer (Windows or Mac) running Photoshop, to use throughout the course. If Photoshop is not installed, Armada can provide details of trial software to download prior to the course commencing.

When you attend our remote training, you’re participating in a real course, hosted by a real trainer, in real time. This training shouldn’t be confused with libraries of pre-prepared e-learning content, that provides an inferior training experience.

One of the Armada team will contact you, answering any questions you have and providing more information about the course. Delegates can book in any of the following ways: Phone: call 01527 834783. Online: www.armada.co.uk. Email: Please email full details, including your name, address, email address, contact phone number and the date of the course you want to attend to training@armada.co.uk.

Yes, you will receive an e-certificate confirming successful completion of an Adobe‑accredited Photoshop training course. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.

Our Remote training courses run from 9:30am-4:30pm, with ample screen breaks and a lunch break throughout the course.
