Description

My course “Adobe Photoshop for textile design” is for Fashion CAD artists and Textile Designers. Also, I’d recommend it for Fashion Designers who are going to start their own business and have no room in their budget to hire a CAD designer.

I hope it will be interesting and useful for professionals and for those who are discovering the world of textile design as a new carrier opportunity.

Why Photoshop? There are many advance textile programs on the market, but their prices are several times higher than Photoshop, and not every business can afford them. Moreover, corporations very often use different programs so it’s hard to use your previous experience, whereas most companies have Photoshop

We are going to learn how to:

Create repeats- straight and half drop;

Do color separations, color reductions;

Clean artworks- several different ways;

Match colors quickly- using “Photoshop action” option;

Create plaids using different kinds of weave-plain, twill, even and uneven.

Create knits using a stitch effect.

Hope you’ll like it!

Who this course is for:
  • Computer artists, Graphic Designers who are starting a Fashion careеr
  • Textile designers, Fashion CAD Artists who are going to improve their skills
  • Fashion designers who are starting their own business
