How to Learn Photoshop for Free

There is no doubt that Photoshop is the number one photo editing software out there. Therefore, it’s only natural that most people have it as their first choice when it comes to learning the art of photo editing.

If you want to learn Photoshop for free, then you need two things:

1. A Free Version of Photoshop

This is difficult since Adobe, the company that owns Photoshop, requires you to have a paid subscription to the Creative Cloud app from where Photoshop can be downloaded from. So basically, you have to pay.

The closest you can get to a free version of Photoshop (legally) is to use Photopea. Photopea looks exactly like Photoshop, as can be seen below:

It’s completely free. You don’t even have to download any software as it’s cloud-based, so everything can be done right from the browser. You just need an internet connection.

2. A Free Photoshop Course

Luckily, this isn’t a problem because we’ve got a completely free Photoshop course, which you can access using the link below:
