You must have seen them; the plethora of “Worst Photoshop Mistakes” and “50 More Photoshop Mistakes” and “Another 3002 Stupid Photoshop Mistakes”. They’re articles with pictures of models without belly buttons, hands facing backwards, and backs arched in physically impossible positions. If you take some of the IT courses available in Perth, you can learn how to avoid those mistakes and spare yourself the shame of becoming a Facebook meme.
Perth has a lot of reputable information technology course providers, but if you don’t have time to physically attend a college, university or IT school, you can still improve your IT qualifications with a range of online courses, including Adobe Photoshop.

What can you do with Photoshop?
As long as you have a picture to play with, you can do pretty much anything. If you don’t want to delve too deeply into all the technical details, you can opt for a short IT course online that will, at the very least, show you how to remove creepy red eyes from photos and change the colour of the puke yellow t-shirt your boyfriend insisted on wearing to the light blue that you think brings out his eyes.
If you want to go beyond the basic level you can sign up for an IT certificate course designed specifically for Photoshop. By the end you should be able to remove unsightly rocks from your countryside landscape, as well as unwelcome photo-bombers. You should also be able to add in pretty butterflies or sheep to make your landscape more … agricultural, and add in a photo-bomber if you so choose.
As you advance, you’ll learn to create 3D effects, play with light, mess with pixels, make images within images, turn people into zombies, completely redo backgrounds and age yourself so you’ll know what you’ll like when you’re 80 years old.
Other IT Courses in Perth
Photoshop might whet your appetite for more IT courses in Perth, such as Adobe’s other picture editing programmes, like Dreamweaver and InDesign. Or, you might discover a new found thirst for all things information technology and sign up at one of the TAFE colleges in Perth for general computer training courses.
You might even decide to take things further and study one of a variety of information technology degree courses at Perth’s Murdoch University or the University of Western Australia. You could get a Bachelor of Information Technology (Web Design) and follow it up with a prestigious graduate diploma.
You might not think it, but when you sign up for a certificate in Photoshop so you can play with your holiday photos, you could discover that Perth has a wealth of information technology courses that strike your (business and personal) fancy.
Don’t assume that one IT course is much the same as another. Aside from the fact that IT courses abound for all the different areas of specialisation in the industry, there is also the fact that not all IT course providers are properly licensed, accredited and registered. And even if they are accredited by regional and national regulating authorities, they might not be approved by specific software companies. For example, they might not have Microsoft’s approval to offer Dynamics or Office courses. If this is the case then you’re just wasting your time and money. TafeCourses.com.au’s IT course providers are properly registered, accredited and approved, so that you can rest assured in the quality of the courses you complete.
