Photoshop Foundation track

Hey everyone! I am just beginning my journey through the web design track and I can see that there is a photoshop foundation track on there. I was curious whether or not you need to have photoshop installed on you're computer in order to complete that track?

Hm maybe I can download a free trial version of photoshop just to get through the track. Thanks for the responses.

Definitely recommended! Sketch is another app that I've loved using and prefer it 90% of the time over Illustrator!

Not really. It is an older version of Photoshop that they use. Mostly just pay attention to the keyboard shortcuts and how the tools are used and you will get through the quizzes. Whenever you get a chance you can play around with stuff in the newer versions of Photoshop and you should have a good foundation for finding your way around even if it is a bit different.

Technically no, but you wouldn't be able to follow along with what you are learning which is nice to have.
