New Intro to Photography Short Courses by Corel

If you’ve been browsing our latest releases, you’ve probably seen two interesting new courses with the Corel Corporation listed as the author. If you haven’t had the chance to check them out, we’re going to give you a quick look at how these new tutorials came about and what you can expect to learn.


When releasing our 6-hour Corel Painter X3 tutorial video series aimed at beginners, we reached out to Corel to get their feedback and see if they wanted some of our tutorials in the video section of their site. As with our training on Adobe TV and our YouTube channel, we’re always looking to share free content with the community, to spark creativity and show people how good our tutorials really are.

Not only did Corel want to share our Painter training, they in turn told us they had created their own commercial tutorial products in multimedia ¬†skills and asked if we’d like to make them available to our customers, too. Infinite Skills invests signifcant time, research and money into developing ¬†our own materials, and we don’t resell outside content. But the quality was exceptional. We saw their digital photography courses as a natural fit, since getting the most from our extensive Photoshop training and Lightroom tutorials can depend on having high quality images to work with. Now we’re making them available to you.
