GCFLearnFree Debuts Photoshop Tutorial

Free Lessons Cover the Basics of Editing Photos 2014-08-26 21:15:55, an online-based educational organization, has launched a free Photoshop Basics tutorial. The tutorial includes 10 lessons and 5 videos that involve performing a variety of tasks in the imaging program, and covers free and low-cost alternatives learners can use as well.

“This has been our most requested topic for quite a while,” says Stephen Lee, lead instructional designer for’s Technology curriculum. “With our new tutorial, learners can use downloadable examples to get hands-on experience with Photoshop. We’ll also show learners several free or inexpensive alternatives that can perform many of the same tasks.”

Specific topics include performing basic tasks in Photoshop; saving images; understanding layers, levels, curves, color, sharpening, and noise reduction; working with brushes and text; and reading histograms. There are resources within the tutorial as well to help point users toward additional help and support if needed.

“Photoshop is a complex application, so it can be difficult to know where to start,” Lee says. “Our tutorial was designed to make the learning curve easier to manage so learners won’t feel overwhelmed.”

Users can follow along by downloading example files and performing the same functions as explained in each lesson, so what they see on their computers can mirror what they see in the tutorial. There are also tips and tricks to help customize Photoshop and make it even more functional for users.

The highly requested Photoshop Basics tutorial complements’s Digital Photography tutorial, which offers instruction on taking good pictures with a digital camera; and Image Editing 101, which teaches users how to improve the look of their digital images using a few simple adjustments.

Photos and graphics are not the only subjects offered via The site – which offers free tutorials to learners around the world, in addition to an accredited online class program in Microsoft Office – also has lessons in English and reading, math, technology, and work and career.
