  • I am in need of brushing up on Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, but I don't have the schedule or availability to take classes locally. What are some of the best classes I can take remotely? I am up for everything from online videos, to coursework accompanied by a book. Are there free resources similar to Khan Academy that I could use instead?

    Question by Oliver Hulland

I am a devoted fan of Lynda.com. I pay the annual membership and take a wide variety of courses. They have rich content around Adobe's Creative Suite.

I have recently taken courses from video2brain and been duly impressed and I hear good things about Kelby Training.

Finally, take a look at CreativeLive.com. They have an interesting business model. The first time they create a class they offer it live and for free. If you can fit the class into your schedule, no charge. If you can't attend their online times you can download their classes for a fee. I made the shift from film to DSLRs with one of their courses on Digital Photography. Eighteen hours of pure excellence.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
