make money from photoshop

I'll teach you how I used Photoshop to create a reliable income source.

Photoshop has changed my life!

I was a door-to-door sales agent living with my parents in a crowded apartment. I tried many ways to make some extra money and I failed every time. I was disappointed and frustrated.


I started learning Photoshop from various tutorials and I began to create website designs on In short, I was awesome at it. I made over $50,000 by creating websites in Photoshop.


I then started a mobile app design studio. I led a team of 20 people, mostly designers, and we created beautiful personalization apps. Those brought me over 120 million downloads and $750,000.


I’m telling you all this for one reason: you can create value through Photoshop and make a lot of money by designing. Whether it’s Facebook ads, websites, mobile apps, or graphic design in general, YOU CAN DO IT.


Photoshop is not just about hiding wrinkles and editing vacation photos. You can use it to create designs that businesses around the world need! Start right now and gain a life skill that you can depend on. I’ll take you through everything, step by step.

gain confidence in yourself

You can create awesome stuff. It's hard work, not talent, and you can do it!

Before I got into learning this course, I was intimidated by the idea of learning something so intuitive and intricate as Photoshop. No kidding, I was almost beaten down by the idea that I would never be able to learn this, mostly due to lack of motivation and the wrong approach in the past.


But these particular tutorials not only make it fun and easy to understand the concepts of Photoshop, but also challenge the learner to invest their time in practicing the various tools and methods taught here. I am more that determined to finish this as soon as I can so that I can work on Professional Projects in the Future. Cheers !

You’ve been an amazing teacher! Before I started this lecture I had tried to figure out photoshop on my own and with the help of some youtube videos. Needless to say that although I did, in fact, made some kind of progress, I lacked direction, technique and most of all the line of thought behind creating the result I wanted. Thank you for giving me just that. I had an amazing time working on all the exercises.

Athina Stamelou

Congrats for the great way of teaching Chris! I really appreciate that you are doing real life projects in a real time and also how you showed me the real communication with your client! That’s a propper teacher! Thank you indeed and I hope soon to be as skillful as you are! I guess with practicing and patience we will be more faster and precise! All the best to you

This is a great course that I totally recommend. When I started it I had very little knowledge of Photoshop, I was confusing many notions and I was quite scared of the magnitude of tools, features and things one can do in Photoshop. I followed all the lectures patiently, worked along, did the exercises and after more than 14 hours of content I can say I have a very good basis to move in any direction I want to specialize in: app design, photo retouching, digital painting etc. And finally, I’m not scared of Photoshop anymore; it’s just a tool and I can now easily understand and improve my knowledge of it

Irina Cretu

Amazing course. Cris’ attention to detail, both in his designs and the content of this course, is incredible. The amount of tips and advice given throughout is unbelievably helpful to aspiring web designers and Cris’ mindset is inspiring and provides valuable direction into the mentality needed to succeed in such a competitive space.
