Yes it’s true you can sit there for hours on your own and try to nut out all the ins and outs of Photoshop. You can learn the basics, spend even more time and you may also learn how to produce some great material. This is real kudos for you. It shows you have drive and determination. It also shows that you are invested in your own excellence and improved skill-sets. Here are some free Photoshop assets:

When you go it on your own there are lots of advantages. Firstly it costs nothing but time, lots of it when you’re not really sure of what you’re doing. Secondly you can go at your own pace and hope that a thousand other things don’t get in your way so that a few hours learning don’t turn into weeks and months with no results. Thirdly, you get to be your own instructor and you learn in your own way. This is great if you already have the answers and know what to do and how to do it. It also means that you would need to know which steps to follow and in which order. This in itself can turn into a frustrating back-and-forth exercise.
As you would realise, self-directed learning is great UP TO A POINT. And then you hit the wall. There’s no instructor/guide to ask questions of, to put comments to or to assess the quality of what you have done so far. Sure, you can research the answers online, but then you’re not sure of the quality of the answers. What works for some, may not necessarily be what you need.
What happens finally is that you either give up trying to improve or you keep working/producing products that are just mediocre. You just don’t know enough of the intricate details of Photoshop to make it work for you so that you are getting the best results possible. And you know that when you started out on the project, you had such grand and wonderful ideas. Very disappointing.
