Just wondering if anyone has any thought on a best training app. I'm at the stage in my photography that I need to sharpen my processing skills. My thought was to use a double monitor, play the video's on one screen and inter-act on the other. I know both of the people in the title have training video's......any thoughts.


Thank you in advance

If you want processing/software training Lynda is best imo. If you want photography training, Kelby is best. I really like both of the though. :)

Lynda is a great way to learn. As much as you want or can manage. Kelby is good too.

Hands down, Lynda has the better content. Lynda also has some very good photography instructional content. One of the best Photoshop instructors, IMO, is Deke McClelland whose One on One Photoshop course is one of the best I have ever seen.

My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

It is my impression that Lynda.com have designed the contents of their instructional videos, determined what each chapter should contain and filmed them as distinct chapters.

Kelby, on the other hand, do not seem to have designed the content but merely filmed a dialogue and cut it into pieces in post production. The effect of this seems to make the videos somewhat disjointed. Their presentation is also often terminated in mid sentence.

I also found it frustrating that the Kelby studio videos were subject to background noises; everything from people laughing in the background to what sounds like people making coffee. Distracting.

The Lynda site is also much better to search/filter for those videos in which one is interested.

So, Lynda.com by a mile.

I like lynda.com for the shear volume of different software instructions...KelbyTr​aining for just Photoshop. They each have monthly memberships to get a "feel" for each.

BTW, Scott has one of the best compositional videos on the planet... http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=FpHMuK7Hticexternal link

I tried both and settled on Lynda.com. I really like Deke McClelland and a number of the other presenters. Deke vs Scott is a Ford vs Chevy kind of thing, but they seem different enough to me that I didn't care to watch both, and just settled on one. I really like Deke's One-on-One series.

I went with Lyda when I needed instruction on Premiere Elements because I could buy just that one video on DVD and keep it forever instead of having to subscribe monthly.

I've tried both and for processing I would go with lynda.com and Chris Orwig.
