About the instructor

Ellen Russell

Hey! I’m Elle, and I LOVE Photoshop. I use it every single day for business and for my own photos. But I remember how confusing it was at first, so I can’t wait to help you go from overwhelmed to confident.I’m married to Tim, my genius, geeky husband, and I’m mom to 3 curious, creative and often crazy boys, and 1 darling little girl who is determined to keep up with her 3 big brothers. When I’m not working from home, or designing crafts for my kids, I’m homeschooling my 2 oldest, playing board games, or learning cool apps and programs.


How do I get my bonus templates, mockups, and shortcuts? 

They’re right inside the course! After you purchase and log in, you’ll find them right underneath the lessons. 

I don’t have a business...is your class for me? 

Yes! You’ll use the skills inside this course to edit photos of your family or your adventures, create your own photo cards (they’re so much better than premade cards!), and add your own text to your social media images.

If I don’t have Photoshop, where can I get it?

If you don’t already own Photoshop, you can download a free trial from Adobe (affiliate link). Adobe offers plans that include Photoshop for as low as $10/month.

Do I have to have Photoshop?

If you don’t have Photoshop and don’t plan on purchasing it in the future, my class isn’t for you. But if you’re curious about Photoshop, or you have it but it’s frustrating or overwhelming, you’re in the right place. 

I’m happy with PicMonkey or Canva. Why would I want to take your class?

There’s far more you can do in Photoshop than either PicMonkey or Canva, and the results are far superior.  I’ve personally tried using both PicMonkey and Canva for various projects and not only are they limited, the final result is far less crisp and clear than what I create with Photoshop. Photoshop is what you need for high-quality graphics you can get done quickly and efficiently. 

What if I have Photoshop Elements?

A lot of what I teach you will be applicable to Photoshop Elements, but you may find there are some tools I talk about that you won’t have.
