Do I need to know Photoshop?
The entire practice part of the ebook is based on using Adobe Photoshop. I would recommend that you know some basics. If you’ve never used Photoshop before, you can still learn from the design theory part, and many designing techniques I show in the practice part can actually be used independently from the software.
What Photoshop version should I use?
I would recommend to have at least Photoshop CS6. That’s the latest version where paragraph and character styles were introduced and they’re very useful. However, you can easily follow all the screenshots in the ebook even if your Photoshop is CS4. The interface hasn’t changed that much.
Will I learn how to code websites as well?
No. This guide is from the initial idea to the final Photoshop files only. So, it’s all about the design. Coding websites is a whole new subject.
