Adobe Photoshop Training Course for CS5 

Training Description
Our course  tutorials explores the new Photoshop CS5 interface, as well as integration with Adobe Bridge, the new Mini Bridge panel, and manipulation tools used to automatically straighten, crop, rotate, and resize images. Learn to use the feature that allows you to temporarily rotate the appearance of a photo as you are working on it.
