Have you been meaning to hone in on your Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom skills? You can fall down the rabbit hole of tutorials on YouTube, or you can participate in online education company CreativeLive’s third-annual Photoshop Week, offering free streaming Photoshop and Lightroom tutorials by expert users.

CreativeLive offers a variety of live seminar videos in the fields of film, design, music, crafting, and business, taught by industry professionals. The seminars are free if you watch them live, but if you either missed an episode or want to save it, you can buy it. From February 23-28, Photoshop Week consists of six days filled with 49 Photoshop and Lightroom seminars, each 90-minutes long. Each day begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m., and Photoshop Week will have something for all levels – from “10 Tips for Photoshop Beginners” to “Mastering the Pen Tool and Shape Layers.”

If you want to watch it free you will need to RSVP via CreativeLive’s website; or, if you want to purchase the whole week, the entire curriculum costs $299. Individual seminars costs $19. You can check out the breakdown of all the seminars and their time slots here.

Teaching the seminars include experts and professionals such as Dave Cross, Tim Grey, Jason Hoppe, Mike Kelley, Matt Kloskowski, Julieanne Kost, Jared Platt, Julia Kuzmenko McKim, Aaron Nace, Chris Orwig, Colin Smith, Paul Trani, and Ben Willmore. No, not household names, but they know their stuff (read their bios here).

All other seminars stream free on Creative Live’s site as well, so even if you’re not looking to brush up on Photoshop or Lightroom, there’s a wealth of more material to check out.
