Its extensive list of tutorials heavily consists of Lightroom and Photoshop lessons.
As we all know, photographers don’t always get things right on every shot so fixing them using photo editing tools is their only solution.
And stepping up one’s photo editing skills is the reason why many sign up with Phlearn.
Just like KelbyOne, you get a wide selection of tutorials ranging from easy to difficult. Sample images are also provided to make sure that you absorbed and get to try out what you have just learned.
The great thing you might be surprised to see is that you are also guided on using editing programs on an iPad using the mobile application of Adobe.
The free tutorials that you get will already equip you with amazing skills such as adding bokeh to your photos or extending backgrounds as well.
The cost is $99.95 per year giving you access to more than 150+ professional tutorials, brand new lessons each month, and Lightroom and Photoshop presets which you can download for free.
Unlike KelbyOne, you only have one option to choose from in terms of accounts, but the value you get for signing up is valuable enough to justify the price.
Working at Your Own Pace
If there are certain steps that you find difficult to follow, you always have the option to pause and rewind the video.
If you want to test the waters before signing up, you may want to watch a few of his free videos first so that you get a sense of his style when teaching each course. New videos are uploaded each week so you will never run out of videos to watch.
Not only is this the best that I have come across, but also one of the best and most entertaining photo editing courses.
Is Phlearn Worth It?
Without a doubt it’s a great learning platform and totally worth your every penny.
The duration of the Phlearn tutorials is pretty short which allows you to learn each one in one sitting.
Aaron will be your one and only tutor, but his humor in the way he teaches will surely entertain you and you’d never get bored with his videos.
(After all, monotonous and boring tutorials are videos we can never stand to watch for a long period of time.)
Despite the professional tutorials being longer than the basic ones, as long as you have the basic knowledge and concept in using the program, you can easily follow the steps being provided.
With that said, starting with the basics is what I would recommend so that when you get to the intermediate or advanced videos, you will not feel lost along the process.
