Chapter 1 - Setting up Photoshop
7 Lectures 54:32

Photoshop is an image editing software developed and manufactured by Adobe System Inc. So, in simpler terms, it’s a very popular editing software used by photographer to edit or retouch images.

PLEASE NOTE: This class holds your Work files! Please move over to the download section and download your Two attached Work files. 

This is literally the absolute start to Photoshop. This lesson will focus on setting up Photoshop and your layout, including colour themes. This is of course, essential in easing your workflow. By navigating to the “Window” drop-down menu, you will find all the essential menus that you need to set up your layout. Among the most essentials, you’ll find options, tools and workspace panels.

Preview 06:52

This is where we’ll focus on the workspace and the tool panel. We’ll discuss why we use the panels the way we do in order for you to understand our workspace.

Modifying The Photoshop Workspace

In this section, we’ll focus on why we have the menu and what is available in the menu. The menu bar is located in the top of the screen and this is the space where you adjust aspects like keyboard shortcuts, apply filters, etc. You’ll become more familiar with the menu bar as the course progresses.

Photoshop Menu Run-through and New Document

We’ll cover opening an existing and creating a new document in both Photoshop CS6 and CC. Creating a new document includes canvas size, resolution, colour mode, etc. To open an existing document you can simply drop it into photoshop, open it from the file menu or the icon at the bottom of your screen

New Documents & Getting Started

In this section, I explain the most important tools to keep or use in your toolbar. Some of the most important tools I use in my workflow.

Lesson 6 - Tools and Foreground Colours

Here I discuss the different working techniques that we use. This segment focuses on the importance of working with the layers and how you can access these layers from different areas to create the same effect.

Lesson 7 - Different Working Techniques/Photoshop
Chapter 2 - Layers & Masks
7 Lectures 57:26

Layers form the backbone of the image you’re constructing. Layers are stacked on top of each other and the blending modes determine how the layers react to each other.

Lesson 8 - Photoshop Layers - What and How

Opening up your normal pixel layer gives you a variety of choices of layer styles. All the effects you choose will be visible under your layer. Here you will find:

  • blending options to set your layer.
  • Different styles to enhance layer
  • Refinement tool
Lesson 9 - Layer Styles and Layer Options

Blending modes allow you to set how the different layers react to each other. Stacking the layers on-top of each other will block out the layers underneath. Changing the blending mode will create a different effect with how the top and bottom layers react.

Lesson 10 - What Are Blending Options

Masks are simple pixel areas that are visible or hidden on certain layers. For example; if you’ve applied a layer with a certain effect and you either want to reduce the effect or only reveal a certain part of the layer, applying a mask makes this possible. There are many techniques using tools to create effects before or after applying a mask. Two simple way to use masks:

  • Applying a mask keeps the effect visible and areas can be brushed out.
  • Inverting the mask hides the effect and areas can be brushed in
Preview 08:57

Adjustment layers are layers where you can apply different effects to your image. There are several different adjustment layers that adjust various aspects of your image, for example, colour, brightness, colour balance, etc.

Lesson 12 - Understadning Layer Adjustments

A smart object allows you to make changes to your image without overwriting the original image data and giving you the opportunity to make non-destructive changes to the layer.

Lesson 13 - Explaining Smart Objects

Before we move over to the next chapter we’ll just cover some of the other panels that form part of our workflow They include panels like History, Colour Ranges, etc.
