It’s May, and and so it’s time for CreativeLive’s Photoshop Week. That means, that for the days of May 14-19, CreativeLive is/was hosting back-to-back classes from the best in the business with a focus on Adobe’s Photoshop and Lightroom.

[REVIEW: Wacom Intuos Pro (New) Review | Refined & Essential]

For those unfamiliar with how CreativeLive works, the classes are filmed with a live audience present and are streamed live as they record, are looped for a duration after the initial broadcast and are replayed periodically after being recorded.

While the classes stream, they’re free to watch, but if you’d like to watch the classes at your leisure, or simply can’t reserve an entire week to be a remote audience member, each class can be purchased to be viewed via desktop, iOS app, or Apple TV.

The great thing about Photoshop Week, however, is that CreativeLive is bundling together all the classes offered to be purchased at a somewhat ludicrous discount. Right now you can get all 42 classes for $299, where individual purchase of them all would cost over $1,200. But as a CreativeLive partner, SLR Lounge’s code can be used to take a further 15% off that cost. For that click here and use code SLRLOUNGE15.
