    If your job is making banners and brochures, I'd focus on mastering InDesign and Illustrator -- vectors are better for print; Photoshop is purely a bitmap graphics/photography tool. GMetrix helps with this, but I'm not sure how much licenses cost.

    There's no way to learn Adobe Photoshop in 2-3 days. You might learn a few things but that's about it. If you have previous experience with a similar program like GIMP, then you'll adjust to Photoshop fairly quickly... but even then, it will still take many months.

    In my opinion the basis of learning Photoshop is to first get to grips with layers. Layers are the hardrock of the program but they are confusing to newbies. You will find though that it will suddenly click. Take all you can in on Youtube tutorials about Layers and thats a great start to understanding other stuff. Forget being creative at first just consume the basics. Looks daunting but once you get sucked in, you will be surprised in what you can learn. Good Luck
    This graphic I created using many layers. Will give you the idea of how important Layers are. Many elements of this graphic are on their own layer in order to work on one part of the graphic without interfering with another. For instance the frame is on its own layer and so is Messi, as well as the badge etc

    • When I was working in photoshop, there are no schools that were trained. I studied myself and now I am a web designer. Here is my site prelest.pro
    • You too can learn photoshop yourself. Good luck.

    There are many actions, plugin sets available for Adobe Photoshop. Try to use them. Search in ebay. There are multiple sets available for most affordable price. With few sets you can learn step by step process how to get those effects. That would be easier and faster way of learning Adobe Photoshop.

    Since you're in hurry to learn, what you should do is go to "help" in photo shop itself and search by typing what you want to do. Since it is poster you intend designing, use the ready made templates found in Photoshop to do it. I never bothered much with Photoshop as I am okay with Microsoft Publisher in Ms Office. I gave a free tutorial on this here.
    Meanwhile, start learning Photoshop easily by using Skillshare tutorials on graphic design. Before you know what is happening, you'll master it fully.
