“If you've waded into Photoshop alone and need some help getting out of certain weedy areas, this course will set you on the right path. Excellent coverage of fundamentals and non-intuitive functions will pique your interest to take the extended class.”

Visual Merchandising, MARNI
“I learned a lot in the class. Eugenio is a fine teacher. I recommend it to anyone interested in editing photos. I work with many old family photos and enjoy touching them up and inserting them into family videos. The family really enjoys the results. Thanks Noble Desktop.”
teacher, Lycee Francais de New York
“Photoshop in a Day is an apt title. You learn all the basics you need to start experimenting on your own!”
“This is a great introduction (and more!) to Photoshop. I like how we watched the instructor and then had exercises in between each lesson to practice what we learned, so we can get familiar with it. The course is good for anyone with a little bit to no experience. Thank you!”
You may attend this training virtually (online) at the scheduled time the course is offered (New York, Eastern Time).
How does attending “live online” work?
Students can attend this training remotely through screen sharing software (we use Zoom).
Participants can hear the instruction, ask questions, and even share their screen with the instructor.
For audio you can use your computer’s microphone/speakers or call a phone number that we’ll provide.
Classes are activity-based and taught by a live instructor, so we strongly encourage students who are local to the area to attend in person!
Students learning Photoshop with hands-on training
Hands-on Photoshop Training
“I wanted to learn a lot in a short amount of time, but didn't want to sacrifice the quality of learning. The small class sizes, the knowledgeable teachers, and the hands-on training is what sold me on Noble Desktop. The experience they have in the real world and what I learned is what brought me back.” Cesar Gaudin, Software Engineer

Learn then Practice
“I like Noble's format. The demonstrations let you see what you can do, and the exercises that follow each one let you do it, while it's fresh in your mind. You can get your questions answered right then, rather than when you get home and actually start doing design. The instructors are great too, and the pace is just right.” Shawn Fain, Network Administrator
