Hey guys, 

 

I've just bought a adobe bundle course (not through adobe though) and wondered if there was any point in learning the old CS stuff. The course includes CS3-6 on photoshop, illustrator, indesign among many others, but as they're old versions, wondered if I would be wasting my time? Or is it useful to start with them for the foundations? 

 

Cheers

It depends how adaptable you are, I think. If you can look through a study and take away the ideas, then search for the tools to make it happen and find how they are different; if a journey of discovery sounds fun or your usual way of learning, this may be fine. If you want to learn things by "where to click and what to choose" this is going to be a frustrating and painful exercise, probably not worth the trouble.

I think I need a mixture of the 2 methods to be honest. I'm a complete beginner but want to be able to use the different Adobe products effectively to persue a career in graphic design and marketing. So I'll need some step by step guidence on where to click to achieve a process in the most effective and time efficient way as well as experimenting with things myself. Thanks for the help.

I agree with Ged. Start with Photoshop 2020 Essential Training: The Basics by Julieanne Kost on LinkedIn Learning, then go through Classroom in a Book. If you get stuck with either course, start a new thread and ask here. Be sure to include a page number or which video you are watching with your question.

I'd also advise looking at lessons that are closer , if not the same version as you will be using. LinkedIn Learning is generally good, not simply techical but also application for specific purposes.

The Adobe help site has some good basic Photoshop tutorials to guide some foundation technocal elements:

My suggestion is, to begin with, tutorials that address current or recent versions as they are built on previous versions. I'd hate to see someone learn a specific method and then realize the tools or processes have changed, which would negatively impact your learning process.

just my two cents

Thanks everyone for your help. I think I'll give LinkedIn learning a look and go from there ☺ I've also joined the Adobe Max conference in October so hopefully that will help a lot too. Cheers again!
