Need to learn how to use some software? How about brushing up on more advanced techniques in Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver or Filemaker Pro?
Well, David Blatner at IndesignSecrets is spreading the word about a free one-week subscription to Lynda.com. If you don’t know, Lynda.com has a huge library of training videos (16,654 according to their website) for a large number of software titles. There doesn’t appear to be any catch – just that your subscription will expire on
Jan 16 whether you use it or not.
Over the years, I’ve learned quite a bit of software techniques using services like Lynda. I happen to be a good visual learner and so video works well for me. Much better than pounding through a monolithic ‘how-to’ book. So give it a try.
Here’s the signup link. Remember, the
trial ends by Jan 16, 2007.
UPDATE: I’m wrong about the trial subscription expiration date. Anne-Marie, co-host at InDesignSecrets informed me that the trial period ends one week after signup. See her comments below. Thanks Anne-Marie.
