Getting Started with Adobe Apps? Here's Help

Adobe has released a series of short video courses targeted at first-time users of the company’s Creative Cloud applications.

If there’s an Adobe app you’ve wanted to try out, these focused, hands-on courses could be a useful introduction. In addition to instructional video, they also include downloadable sample files and even keyboard shortcut cheat sheets.

For example, one of the Getting Started tutorials takes first-time Illustrator users through the process of designing a logo using vector artwork. While you won’t walk away with a nuanced understanding of Illustrator or logo design, you may gain enough confidence to continue exploring the app.

You’re not left on your own after you finish the course: Adobe points you toward more free tutorials and a forum where you can ask questions.

So far, there are eight Getting Started projects:

  1. Create your first website with Adobe Muse

  2. Create your first After Effects project

  3. Build and style a web page in Dreamweaver

  4. Build an animated web banner in Edge Animate

  5. Design a logo with Adobe Illustrator

  6. Create your first brochure with InDesign

  7. Edit your first photo with Photoshop

  8. Create a video story with Premiere Pro
