During this course on creating stylised images in Photoshop we will look at various examples and explore the possibilites of using Photoshop to create
highly effective graphics for multiple applications.
We will look at the following and see how we can manipulate them to suit our purpose:
Further more we will have a quck look at Illustrator and the trace tool and see how this can help us create great stylised images.
This cousre is for all levels and will hopefully show you how quick and easy it is to manipulate images for any purpose in Photoshop and Illustrator
At the end of this course you should not only be confident with the tools shown but also be very productive and be able to confidently get the look our after
In Photoshop I will show how we can use levels and desaturate to pull detail from our images.
The use of layers is vital in Photoshop as well as Illustrator here I will show you how we can build up our image.
Using filters and creating groups add another level to your images, watch how you can do it.
In this lesson we will finish our stylised image, here we look at masking for groups, yes thats right we can also mask groups as well as layers.
What we have done so far is very manual and requires a bit of thought, what we shall do now is do the same thing but use speed saving techniques, I must point out it is always a good idea to manipulate images with as much control as possible as above.
Using effects filters in Photoshop can save hours of time, here we will take a look how we can create the same look as the project we just finished but in a fraction of the time.
Changing colour modes can be a great way to stylise your image, see how we change mode from RGB to Duotone and back.
This lesson focuses on a range of techniques for different styles.
Now in Illustrator I will show you how your can use the Trace tool to create a vector version (vector means it could be scaled to any size without losing resolution or detail) remember you could also use layers and build up your image, just make sure you keep the original image and do the same as the Photoshop by duplicating the layer in Illustrator! :)
I Hope you have found this course usefull there are no quizzes as this course is meant for speed learning come back time and time again and if anything it not clear please get in touch, I consider guidance and help an essential part of my training style.
