Do you feel right now that you can fully express
your creative visions with Adobe Photoshop?
There's no doubt that you are a person of vision and also a

Whether you're a graphic designer, photographer, web
designer, etc. you probably want to be on top of the game-even if
Photoshop is just a hobby. Well today my friend I have good news
for you; your Photoshop dreams can come true! You can now
easily learn how to harness the power of Photoshop for
image-editing (which is a snap) but more importantly for
yourself visuallywith it's powerful tools.
The best part?
have to go to graphic design or vocational school and spend that
kind of money or time to get real-world results.
I tell you, I was so
frustrated that I couldn't find how to learn graphic design (using
Photoshop of course) that I decided to take 6 months of 12 hour days
alone just to figure it out. I don't think you have that kind
of time to figure things out!? I would look at graphic design
from all kinds of genres including movie posters, flyers, brochures,
websites, etc. and replicate them with my own resources.
This instilled the
discipline and training I needed to produce easily on my own after
understanding the different elements involved within Photoshop of
different genres of graphic design. I went at learning with a
purpose because I was almost mad that no one else was teaching
this, the real world stuff and I didn't have the money to spend
so instead I put half a year specifically into getting really good
at any genre of graphic design.
Why is this important
to you? Because you can now cut years off of your 'real-world
Show-me-the-money" learning curve and save yourself
thousands of dollars. Remember that unless you're
inside at an ad agency AFTER your degree, it's going to be hard to
find anyone else willing to share their secrets. Most
importantly, you'll take the absolute fastest route (by
learning and applying these secrets I'm going to introduce you to)
to becoming a professional Photoshop designer.
Even though I'm as good
as any top designer out there, I'm not in competition with them so I
don't mind sharing all of the inside-industry secrets...those that
would otherwise take years to learn (they want to keep their jobs
and secrets to themselves, naturally).
I would rather help
you become a successful Photoshop Designer
than to have to go through what I went through,
because I know that it will save you thousands of dollars, lots of
time and get you straight to where you want to be.

Do you REALLY
want to learn how to maximize Photoshop for what you can do with it?!
Always wonder how the best of the best do what
they do? There's a whole world around us filled with consciously created
visual appeal (advertising, marketing..) and we're all influenced by it whether
we know it or not. I'll take you inside the
design workflow and show you
how to use
Photoshop through countless dozens of practical exercises
(this is in
addition to all of the basic & technical Photoshop 'skills'
training) so you can start to produce on this 'universal' level.
What you want to do as a designer is end up with impressive visual results
that communicate the exact idea or general concept you had in mind;
I show you many ways to get there and
what tools to use.Put my quality
training to use and log the hours in Photoshop and you will skate ahead (it is imperative you do this as much as you can
if you want to be an advanced amateur or pro).
I can't do your actual designing for you, but
apply your new education,
the power &
leverage of a faster learning curve (and insight on how you can produce
real graphic design) is now in your hands. So
go for it tiger. Show 'em what you can do with the #1 image editing
program in the world (and your vision) and the Photoshop
Here we step in on a
tutorial in progress (shhhh)..

Think about text as something that would synergize and complement
the entire design...
..This being a movie style poster, you will want to
create your fantasy names or real names) at the top of the design.
Use a smaller font. You definitely want these to be legible and
there are a few fonts that will work all of the time like Minion and
Times New Roman or Trajan...
..You may have to move the layer up in the layers
palette because when you create new layers or start entering text,
it will be placed right above the layer that you were on.

does await you.

Learn to use Photoshop that will
produce powerful and quick results. Even if you are an
intermediate Photoshop user, you are guaranteed to have countless "aha" moments throughout
the training program.
What is your potential?
Each person is unique and has many things to express.
What do you have
to express? Maybe you just need the right tools!
Tools are leverage
and knowledge is power (these are Universal Truths). You now have the
opportunity to "take the bull by the horns" with Photoshop as you become
master. This training will get you there and covers it all to give you
that Photoshop power that you dream of.
Don't reinvent the wheel (stubbornly learning yourself), but rather
harness the state of mind and knowledge of others who are already there(insider techniques and
workflow) so you too can tap into the full freedom of creativity to
express yourself and your visions.
It is truly a great feeling to effectively express yourself this
To be able to create design that not only makes you feel good but
meets industry quality standards. Remember that with your permission, I
will be your mentor.
Knowledge = Power and $ = Power....so you figure it out!
The bottom line? It's really your portfolio that counts.
The showcase of your skills to primarily yourself (I think) or your clients. It all comes down to what you
can do rather than what a piece of paper says (or what you say you can do!). And what you can do
comes down to what you know. We are in a results driven
society (esp. on the internet now). A degree can be important and a solid mark on your
resume, BUT IF YOU CAN'T PRODUCE you'd better start or it doesn't matter if you
have a degree or not (GET OUT THE KITCHEN!). Employers & clients
are looking for people who can get the job done. Whatever your reason,
with the Photoshop Designer Training, you
will now be able to start designing and developing
your own portfolio or "book"
in almost no time! And that's making the most use of of Photoshop!
I want you to be inspired by my work and who you are learning from. I
have a true passion for Photoshop and graphic design; the very thought of
making a new design makes me tingle with joy. The idea of the new
boundaries which I've yet to break and explore in design thrills me! The
further I go, the further I realize I have yet to go (=it's time to get started
if you haven't!) and I want you to have that same level of appreciation for the
"I just wanted to say thank you
for sharing what you have learned..I feel that Like you I Have a
love/passion for graphic design.. and your work is very inspiring..
again thank you for your hard work."
There's no need to struggle
or putz around with Photoshop
& trying to figure out how to
design like a pro anymore
...no matter what level you're at.
It's time to touch up your images like a pro and create or expand your portfolio
so you have something to be really proud of.
Soon you can offer your
services as a retoucher, image-editor, web designer, graphic designer or just enhance your own skill-set as a hobbyist
& Photoshop guru.
The student is ready and the teacher/master has
appeared. Are you ready
to really become a Photoshop Designer, oh young apprentice? If you're at
all ready to finally just "take on" Photoshop, you're
going to be blown away by the powerful Designer bonuses that
you'll soon read about (you won't believe it)!
You can pick up bits
and pieces of Photoshop here and there in books and on the web. Learn some cool tips or
how to make a liquid lava effect on dozens of Photoshop sites online

can you actually LEARN PHOTOSHOP? I'm talking COMPLETE PHOTOSHOP training
(mentioned later) that walks you through step-by-step everything you need to know to take it into
Career designers are going to hate me for this but
I don't care...
I want to
give you the gift of really learning Photoshop and then the secrets to
great industry quality design so you don't have to spend years trying to figure
it out for yourself
With the Photoshop Designer training,
soon you will be operating smoothly in Photoshop and can be distributing your
Photoshop images and work
via email, uploading to the web or publishing
in print to share with your friends and colleagues! You will have
the tremendous feeling of satisfaction in creating your own beautiful designs in
Photoshop (well beyond just basic image editing and enhancement);
I'm talking things you never thought possible that you can do with images!
What would you be able to do if you
could look at real world designs and break them apart and move the layers around
in Photoshop?! Would that help you learn? It's helped my students
learn a lot about real world design. This is the inside level of training
that I'm talking about. Cut all the wasted time and skip straight to what
counts; the REAL WORLD professional Photoshop designing.
Are you a visual person?
There is lots of money to be made in design.
This training will help get you there. Look around you;
everywhere you go you see billboards, magazines, movie posters, ads, flyers,
brochures; all of these had to made by someone and they are getting paid for it;
why not you too? Advertisements and website's today need to attract and hold people's
attention and companies are looking for qualified designers.

right instructor! Orion, thank you
for your magnificent website and for all
your help in opening up a whole world for me
in graphic design!"
Here's a quick look at the level of training you'll
be learning from...
Start by creating a new document. This one is 521 X 837 @ 150
dpi (because of the source document I copied from).
You are automatically on the background layer. Now go to the
gradient tool ďGĒ. Double click on the gradient window to bring up
the gradient editor. You are going to create color stops here
that are similar to these colors. Click below the bar to
create a new color stop or double click to edit a current one.
This technique is taught in video in my
Basic Photoshop DVD Training.
Note that I usually donít give you exact color
coordinates. This is because I want you to be thinking as a
Photoshop designer and it also helps develop your eye if you want to
go exactly off of me (hehe). Remember you can open a document in
Photoshop and use the eyedropper tool in the color chooser for your
gradient stops to get the exact color your looking for from any open
document in the workspace. After you have chosen your color
stops to look something like this (4-5 of them in slightly different
light purple shades) name your gradient and click New.
Now go ahead and swipe at an angle across the
Now that youíve created the nice pink gradient and
swiped it at a diagonal on your background layer; go ahead and get
your main character. This is going to be a nice portrait design and
the better the quality of your original source images = the much
better end quality potential of the design.
On the source image document youíll need to get a
selection of your star character. You can use many methods within
Photoshop. Here Iím using the magic wand (ĎWí) on a medium tolerance
of 20. This will select the background maroon pixels.
Now you can right click and choose select inverse to
close in on the desired image. The art of the selection is a worthy
endeavor because I myself an still striving to perfect it. It
really depends on what situation you are in because there are a
multitude of tools that you can use to get a perfect selection.
These are covered in the
Photoshop training program from BasicPhotoshop.com
Now switch to the moVe tool and drag your selection
(from within the selected area) over to the document that youíre
working on. In this case Iíve brought over two different images of
my friend from the same professional photo shoot.
Being very experienced in Photoshop I know that I
have powerful blending modes that will instantly make a perfect
match into the design as you will soon see.
I used the circular marquee tool holding
down the shift key for a perfect circle and moved it
into exact position by clicking within the circle to get
the circular selection in place above the object.
Use the moVe tool and drag it over into the
Now be aware of your layer order. You may have to
move it below the top layers in the layers palette (depends on which
layer you were last on) because in this case, we want it as part of
the background (naturally). Try out some different blending modes.
There are several that will work in this case...find something that
Here is the power of the blending modes like youíve
never seen them. Since we have such a clean source image, duplicate
it (like I usually do) and change the blending mode of the replicate
layer to Hard Light (it will depend on your actual source images).
This creates a perfect higher contract immediately by mixing the
light levels of the two layers. Hard Light (& Overlay) is my
favorite blending mode just because itís hardcore and effective for
most circumstances Iím in. Here it just creates a healthier glow
with shinier skin!
Soft light works here to blend this duplicate image (which Iíve
used the moVe tool to place it over and a little under off to the
right). You could also just lower the opacity........
a few steps later...
...Now letís add a little more vector balance to this
design to top it off even more. This is just taking it to the next
level. Can you feel the balance of bitmap (ie. photo) and vector (ie.
text, shape)? In graphic design you want to create feelings and
emotion that synergize with your target audience. These are created
in a visual manner but can trigger internal emotions and (hopefully)
positive references or associations from a personís internal state.
Ok, I got an ďAĒ in psychology at U of Hawaii Manoa.
Just use the brush on a spaced apart setting (move
the slider bar to the right from its condensed default) and maybe
some ĎScatteringí in that dialog box or Angle/Size Jitter under
The goal here is to add just the right balance of feminine power
and beauty so donít create too many condensed flowers. Oh yes, make
sure you create a new blank layer to paint these onto with your
foreground color of choice (here...a pure dove white..interesting
how it becomes more than just Ďwhiteí).
Change the blending modes if you want. Either way
you canít really harm the design at this level and a screen effect
will also work nicely. You can see how the selected flowers
start to mix light with the layers beneath on Overlay.
You can duplicate the layer, Ctrl click on the layer
icon and then swipe the background purplee gradient across (that
weíve created earlier) to fill the flowers with the same color theme
purple. This is also another option (taught in some other tutorials
also)...and then changing the blending mode. Turn the layers off and
on with the eyeballs in the layers palette.
To finish off the design you can add an inner stroke
to the background layer. Click on the background layer in the layers
palette (our perrty pastel gradient) and click on the lower left
icon to bring up your first option of Stroke to go right to the
Stroke layer style dialog box. Choose a Fill Type of Gradient and
then choose a color gradient that has something in common with the
Change the angle if you want and use either linear
or reflected to cover the entire width of the stroke (border). You
can also change the scale to sharpen the effect or soften it out.
Use the white flowers or the gradient ones..itís up to you. I
canít believe Iím teaching this! These are the inside secrets that
no one will share with you...it makes me feel a little vulnerable
but for a good cause-your education! Enjoy!

Do you know how easy it is to improve and edit your photographs
or to start graphic designing with Photoshop? (A few of Photoshop's
editing tools alone are worth the cost of the software). It is so easy to
fix worn-out photographs, make enhancements, correct exposure, even remove
someone from the background or place them in another picture. Your friends will be jealous.
Do you know what you are capable of when you finally can work freely within
Photoshop? You'd be so dangerous you might have to be locked up!
Let me put it this way: Every product ad, movie poster, flyer, brochure,
magazine cover, professional photo, marketing campaign, billboard, cd cover,
product packaging, poster, and website either was made in Photoshop or had
something to do with it. I'm talking everything in the deliberately
created visual world around you basically boils down to Adobe Photoshop (or it's lesser
competitors and supplementary software ie. Illustrator, InDesign).
Photoshop Reigns as King
and all the top designers in the world use it (but you already know that).
for all your help! it's made me a much better designer
The worst thing you can do is continue to sit there not
knowing what to do with the world's most powerful (2-D) software
right in front of you!I know what that feeling's like
because I used to be there, but I don't want you taking years of your
life to get to a level you can be at in a few short weeks or months(it took me many years). If you're finally taking Photoshop
seriously (or thinking about it) you're in the right place at the right
time because this Photoshop Designer training can do for you what
it's done for many others.
But your secret is
that you wouldn't have spent years of your life and $1,000's of
dollars getting there!
Did you Ever Wonder: "How did they do that!?" Ever wonder why
you can never really learn the inside "good stuff" that you see everyday around
you? Ever look at great posters or designs and wish you could do that?

It's nice that 10,000's of people

Designer training will get you there.
As with taking on any new challenge, there is some learning curve
involved but if you can effectively learn from someone else who has what you

different books but couldnít seem to achieve anything more than
how to use the program. When Photoshop CS came out, I knew I
needed more than what I was getting and I began to check the
internet for more creative help. I came upon the
Photoshopdesign.net website and tried some of the free
tutorials. I wanted to be able to do some of the design effects
that were in some of the sample psdís. I purchased the
Total course and I am still working on them.
Before & After
I am 59 years
old and to learn new things takes me more time so I have to
do some of the tutorials over and over. Without trying to score
brownie points or lie, the Photoshop Designer course has been the most valuable
investment I have made in my quest to learn and understand
Photoshop. Orion Williams not only teaches what
Photoshop can do, he also shows you how to achieve these effects
and add variables. He continues your education with free
downloads and access to his portfolio which I find amazing as
most designers are so protective of their work.

combine photos, do some blending and apply layer masks. As I
continue to progress with the tutorials, I hope to become more
valuable to my company and find the confidence to produce more
exciting flyers and promotional materials. Tolerances,
opacities, flow, fill, the various layer styles and what they
mean (overlay, hard light, multiply etc) are all covered.
complaint that I have (there goes my brownie points) is that you
sometimes go too fast but there is always rewind. I also
appreciate the subtle humour throughout the tutorials.

So with everything that I've talked
about, you know that if you went the traditional route or tried
to figure things out on your own you would spend a lot more time
and money to get that far. Well, you can cut right through
all of that and get straight to the good stuff with Photoshop
immediately (TODAY). You've also seen examples of my
student's work. To view some of my work click
here to open
The level of quality and knowledge
with the Photoshop Designer Package is powerful and will save
you so much stress, because you'll cut right to the chase. I think that's a great deal compared to the thousands of dollars
you'll spend and level of dedication to going the more
route, where even if you're slightly interested and just want to
know their secrets, this is still such a leveraged situation for
your personal growth.
You may already be enjoying
my PSDer Ezine and
PhotoshopDesign.NET but if you're ready

"Orion, Just had to drop you a note on
your ..'Photoshop Designer' DVD series that I purchased in
March 2004. I have gotten thru the first 2 DVD's; file basics and
patterns selections and adjustments. I thought I had a good
knowledge of Photoshop until you showed me in the DVD's how much I
didn't know. I had been trying to teach myself Photoshop by
purchasing magazines with cover cd's that had tut's on Photoshop and by
reading the "gurus" books. Nothing, repeat
nothing, comes close to your DVD's. It is like you are right
here teaching me, one on one. The other tut's I got from the
magazines did not come close to your easy to follow course. I would
buy 3 magazines a month on Photoshop, each costing about $14.00, that is
$42.00 a month. Just about each and every month. Now that I purchased
your DVD collection for $97.00 I am only buying maybe one magazine a
month. Your DVD collection is a steal at $97.00 for all
the information that in in it, and I am only into the first 2 DVD's.
My mind may not be able to contain all the Photoshop knowledge you have
on the DVD's. I really want to thank you for the easy to
understand way you go thru the lessons on the DVD's. It has
give me the ability to get more out of Photoshop than with anything else.
It seems to me like you want people to really understand Photoshop and
some of the other "gurus" just want to sell books or tutorial cds. I am
so glad I purchased the DVD collection. I was a little concerned at
first because I never heard of you but I will tell anyone "NOW" that
this guy, Orion Williams is "THE" Photoshop "guru" for the 21st century.
STAY HEALTHY Keep up the good work."
Total Package used to sell for $297 a few months ago!
Now only $139-that's less than half price.
I'm not just saying this to make it look like a bargain (that's obvious).
I DID sell it for $297 and still had
very satisfied customers and no refunds. Now there's been more training
added to it (downloads, ipsdirectory...) I did give them individual refunds when I
changed the sale format to make it more affordable to everyone (also around the
world). But act soon because I will be raising the price shortly.

"...Ive printed and
read your Basic Photoshop tutorials and I may say, that I have been
doing a part time studies course for 1 1/2 years now on desktop
publishing which incorporates Photoshop and this is the only time
that I fully understand and got the full grasp of the Basics of
Photoshop when I read your manual,
much, much better than
the school manuals and some Photoshop books that Ive read.
Your tutorials are well written and well visually laid out that even a newbie like me will no doubt be able to follow the
steps. Now Im excited and wish Iíll get your DVDs sooner...
Now it seems that I
may find my part time studies soooo boring. Whatís happening is in
school the teacher gives us a project brief that we will do (this is
on our second stage of photoshop - Certificate 4); gives us a hard
copy example and thatís about it. We then produce a project and all
they do is comment without giving us more information how to enhance
our work nor the way it should be done. I once asked regarding
those techno art and the only response I got is that I have to start
clicking all those other filter tools and be inventive. Its too
frustrating to us newbies coz we see posters that are beautifully
made and yet the teachers wont give us ideas how its done.
So I was just so
amazed when I saw all your freebies psd files it really shows
everything, actuallly NO NEED for a teacher or the classroom. The
only thing I regret is its only now that I happen to stumble to your
Well sorry for taking up much of your time, Im just so excited on
these tutorials and cant help myself giving you a feedback."
