Introduction to Photoshop CC (Self-Paced Tutorial)   

This hands-on, project-oriented course is filled with easy-to-follow, detailed step-by-step instructions that teach you how to edit and manipulate images and create elemental compositions using Photoshop in the Creative Cloud. Discover how to improve photographs by editing out flaws, correcting poor exposure, or creating a composite image using the newest techniques.

Photoshop is the world's most popular photo-editing program. Artists, photographers, designers, and hobbyists all rely on Adobe Photoshop for image creation and editing.

You will also learn about the content-aware Move tools that, like magic, let you move something on an image and intelligently replace the "hole" left behind at the same time.
