Have you ever tried to fix a problem in Photoshop only to end up launching your laptop at the wall while foaming at the mouth? What you’re experiencing is a state that I call ‘ShopRage’.

Don’t feel bad about it. We’ve all been there, more than once. What you need is someone to guide you through the rage-inducing frustration of using Photoshop so that you can unleash its amazing potential for improving your own photography

Relax and breathe a sigh of relief because ‘Photoshop For Morons 2‘ is finally here.


I’m delighted to announce that my book is now back in stock since Grumpton saw the error of his ways and returned the books he ‘borrowed’. Learn more.


I was inspired to create this online photography course after one of my students emailed me and asked “Gavin, can you just teach me Photoshop as if I was a complete moron?”.

I just had to write you and tell you how excited I am to be able to use these presets! I didn’t even own Lightroom when I saw your advertisement for these presets, but between seeing your amazing photographic work and reading the description of this offering, I decided on the spot to go out and buy Lightroom and your presets. I just now downloaded them and played around a little bit and I am SO EXCITED!!!! I am an extreme novice with Lightroom, so I am just fumbling my way around in it until I get the hang of it, but already I am super-impressed with these presets. I started my vacation last night and I’m leaving today for a 3 day trip up to Mono Lake, CA to shoot the Milky Way! So the timing was perfect for me! 🙂

This is so much more than I could have asked for, especially considering the price. Thank you for this!!! I hope one day to meet you in person and personally thank you!

Sincerely,
Helen Watson
