Need Photoshop Help? {Giveaway}

Although my Photoshop skills are good enough to do basic stuff, I always want to learn more about how to fully take advantage of everything it has to offer. It does kind of seem intimidating though, doesn’t it?


Well, my lovely blogger friend Dariela Cruz and her sister are super talented graphic designers who have put together Photoshop classes that you can take online. They are affordable (about $40) and limited to 10 students so it’s a really great way to get hands on experience from the comfort of your own home. I personally will be taking one of their classes, and I cannot wait to dig in and expand my skills. They offer 4 different courses + a just for you class where they’ll teach ya whatever you want to learn about Photoshop. Again, I cannot stress how affordable and USEFUL these courses are. Here’s a rundown of their 4 course offerings:


You can view all of the courses + the calendar over on their very easy to navigate website. As for me, I’ll be taking Photoshop for Bloggers on March 29th in the evening. If you’d like to join me, you can check out their calendar right over here and if you want to save 25% off the course, simply use the code monicawantsit at checkout. The code is effective until one month from today, Monday, March 19th.


And because Dariela is so nice and wants people to try out the courses, I get to giveaway a free course to one lucky person.

To enter, simply tell me which course you’d like to take and why. Leave me a way to find ya in your comment (Twitter handle, e-mail, etc.) Contest is open from now until Friday at 10 am CST, so tell your friends!

Side note: Photoshop courses are meant for Photoshop CS3, 4, 5 and are NOT compatible with Photoshop Elements.

May the odds be ever in your favor! 🙂

Disclosure: I was not compensated monetarily in anyway for this post, I just want to help out a fellow blog friend.

    I would love to take the Begninng Photoshop class (Welcome to Photoshop World). David uses a basic editing software for his photos but we would love to try something professional, but we have never used Photoshop before. Thanks for the giveaway Monica! Love your blog as always :)Twitter @ItsMeKristinB

    I'd love the photoshop for Bloggers class. I only have elements though. I can do basic layers, but that is about it.

    I would love to do the Photoshop for Bloggers, possible the Intermediate 2. I took a class on Photoshop in art school but it's been a long time! I'd love to learn how to do more cool things with it! Twitter: @iheartreading

    Thank you for this post – I have been wanting to learn, and love the idea of supporting fellow bloggers. I'll probably do the full suite of courses, and sign up for sometime after Easter…Now… to get Photoshop! 🙂
