Check with your library about free access to Lynda.com training videos

Post by LindaShorey » Mon Dec 25, 2017 12:20 am

An online buddy mentioned she was getting lynda.com videos free through her local library. I never thought to check my own (probably because she was doing the Photoshop instruction) and then suddenly I discovered a link on my county library's home page!

Info:
Through individual, government, corporate and academic subscriptions, members have access to the lynda.com video library of engaging, top-quality courses taught by recognized industry experts – more than 5,700 courses and 255,000 video tutorials across mobile and desktop.

After initially accessing the site via the link on my library's home page, I was only required to log with my library card number and the password I use on the library website to request books. I've been sampling some very high quality instruction (and instructors) for several days now: advanced composition, critique, textures and more!

Super! Bob Long is currently my favorite instructor there, including "Advanced Composition" and a few chapters in "The Practicing Photographer." Note how you can create a playlist to keep track of what you want to watch in future, or go back to for review. The Weekly Critiques by Steve Simon can be good, but sometimes he is a little short on the "WHY" :)
