More Course Information

Why is BYOL the best place in New Zealand for Adobe Photoshop Training?

Photoshop is big. I mean really big. If you thought space was big, wait until you discover the 4th different way to do the same thing in Photoshop. Adobe don't want to overwhelm you, but neither do they want to limit you. You can use any tool in more than one way, and you can accomplish many tasks in Photoshop in numbers of different ways. Because you don't want borders on your creativity, and because Adobe wants you to have the power to get the ideas out of your head and into your art.

The right Photoshop training gives you the map so you won't get lost in it all.

Bring Your Own Laptop doesn't just want to teach you how Photoshop works, we want to show you how you can create and design and produce the real world results you need. That's an important distinction, because we didn't design our courses to meet some academic aim. We learned Photoshop on the job, in front of clients, and we want you to have the same practical skills. We want you first and foremost to know how to get it done.

Actual decades of practice are behind our course writers and instructors. You need a strong foundation that covers all the essentials, so that even when Adobe releases the next amazing feature, and that happens a lot faster these days thanks to continual Adobe Cloud updates, you'll have the ground level understanding of Photoshop that allows you to adapt and learn faster. That's the sort of training we continue to refine and implement.

We give you the solid base that all the tips and tricks are grounded to. Photoshop training that gives you all the important bits in a way that's easy to apply, and easy to grow from. A solid, and deep, foundation.

At Bring Your Own Laptop, all your instructors are actual photographers, designers and artists. We are New Zealand's ONLY Adobe Authorised training Centre. We have Adobe Certified Experts. And we have all kinds of academic qualifications and training. But what we all take pride in is the real world experience that goes into every minute of your Photoshop training.

Where most other facilities teach you straight out of Adobe Classroom in a Book, we teach you with hands on projects that are 'Adobe Classroom' for the real world.

We know that a photographer, a graphic designer or a web designer will all have different outcomes and different standards to work to. We also know that there are some truly useful skills that are universal in Photoshop. We know which ones matter to you, and we show you the right ones for the job.

At Bring Your Own Laptop, we never assume that one size fits all. We have flexible instructors and we can customise your training. And we ask (and answer) questions. We want to give you the best Photoshop training experience in New Zealand - and we want it to be the training you can use at work. It's all about the real world, not just academics and a certificate of participation.

Our Photoshop training is most importantly hands on. You are creative. You'll learn best by creating, so our training gives you real world projects to sink your teeth into. And the results are designed to be industry standard so you're learning skills applicable to the daily work of a Photoshop professional. You live and work in the real world and we train you accordingly.

We take a very calculated approach to building up your fundamental skills - as you get live training with all the help where and when you need it, you are actually compiling the techniques and comprehension to power your everyday Photoshop proficiency.

Everyone here at BYOL believes in sharing. We ensure part of our profits every month goes to wonderful charities doing amazing things.
