"Five Fast Masking Tips in Photoshop CC" is for intermediate Photoshop users.
A project based course, Photoshop users who, while very proficient in their everyday work areas, are not familiar with the best processes to use Masks to manipulate their images quickly and professionally, will find this highly-focused course a delight.
We go thru specific projects, which students can follow along and practice beside us. These projects are designed to get the Photoshop user up to speed in the least amount of time.
Due to the focused nature of the course, if students end up not using Masks for a few months and forget what they learned, they will be able to quickly and easily find the specific function they need to use, review it and get back up to speed fast.
Masking is a term used to describe the process of removing part an image from the background. You can then use the masked object in another composition. Masking can be challenging, especially if the foreground image intermingles with the background. Examples are fur or hair. In this course you will learn 5 fast ways of preparing images for masking, and masking the images you work with, quickly.
When you are done, you will know how to mask images with the Magic Wand tool, the Quick Selection tool, the Color Range Command, and the Pen tool.
All of these will give you many options for creating high-quality masks.
Who this course is for:
- the intermediate Photoshop user in a Web or Print capacity
- the Photoshop user who wants to speed up their masking workflow
- not designed for the Photoshop amateur who doesn't have a working knowledge of the program
- must know how to manipulate them in Photoshop

Research published this year by Harvard and Stanford Business Schools suggests that health problems associated with job-related anxiety account for more deaths each year in the US than Alzheimer’s disease or diabetes. It is likely that the same is true in the UK.
The combination of the Amazon story and the recent study into the impact of work-related stress means that there are important questions that all organisations should ask themselves.
These include: What type of management culture do we foster? What informal conflict management techniques do we offer to foster healthy workplace relationships? What are we doing to enable people at work to enjoy their jobs and thrive, both psychologically and physically?
Scott teaches non-violent communication techniques that help managers live healthier productive lives.
