We Love Lynda (.Com)
Here at CreativePro.com, we've always had huge respect for lynda.com's video training -- in fact, a lot of our writers record courses for the company. That's why we're so happy to tell you that as of January 1 of this year, lynda.com is also our official training partner.
To view all of lynda.com's 42,000+ video tutorials, you can sign up for a month (starting at $25, or $37.50 if you want the exercise files, too) or a year (from $250 to $375).
For those who prefer to try before buying, lynda makes it easy. Say you want to build your first Web site with Dreamweaver. Just go to the course on that topic and watch six free segments to decide whether the class has what you need. Would you rather learn about logo design? There's a three-hour workshop on that, and you can watch six free segments from it. Or maybe you have an endless hunger for Photoshop. There are scores of classes on Photoshop, and segments from most of them are free for you to watch. For example, I love Chris Orwig's class "Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: Creative Effects." It's almost eight hours long, and a whopping ten segments of it are free!
When you need targeted, in-depth software education, and you need it now, you can't go wrong with lynda.com.
