For the Business Professional You work hard everyday. Accelerating in your job may very well mean you need to learn how to use Adobe® Photoshop to better your skill set. If you’re a Marketing creative, in Advertisement, Sales, or any field that needs creatives made, this course will get you up to speed in a quick and efficient way. Don't risk not knowing Photoshop in any field of Business!
For the Entrepreneur When you’re starting a business with little money, you need to bootstrap. Bootstrapping means you pay for and learn how to do it all in the beginning, including the designing of your items with programs like Adobe® Photoshop. You have very little time and NO idea how to go about it. You wear many hats and making your own content is one of them.
Welcome to this course. You will be introduced to Adobe® Photoshop where you will learn quickly how to design things such as business cards and print advertisements. With a low monthly cost of Photoshop, you will have the skills and know-how to build whatever you need quickly and efficiently. With dedication, you will learn business specific Photoshop projects in less than two hours!
This course walks you through such things as setting up your workspace (and what it is), color modes, masking, making a full-page ad and a business card, shortcuts, and others as well!
This is an accelerated Crash Course. You will not only learn how to use the program but you will learn how to use the shortcuts to save time. The faster you learn to use shortcuts, the faster you will get your projects done, and that’s money saved.
A Crash Course is much more than a class taught quickly. It has a focus, among other things.
Everything that you need to build what we are making are included in this course. Feel free to use it practice on your own, but please do not use it outside the scope of this course.
There was a small change in Photoshop CC since the creation of this course. It's not major. This document explains it.
Knowing about Color Modes and Resolutions are vital in the business world. It can cost you thousands if you mess up, so pay attention to this lecture!
Knowing the shortcut keys are a great way to cut time out of completing your project. Here we speak about Mac & PC shortcut keys.
We all start somewhere. Even beginners may have difficulty removing a plain white background, or a background of another solid color. Let's start!
Now that we've learned the basics, let's add a few more skills under our belt. This time we will focus on multiple selection masks.
Let's take it one step further and remove a background with multiple colors.
This quick tutorial will show you how to remove an object within an image and replace it with a "patch" of the surrounding background. This is useful when wanting to remove something that is not necessary to the image purpose.
Time to do a quick setup and start adding assets to our project.
Once our assets are in place it's time to refine them to get a final product.
Once we are done with our project, it's time to save it... but to what? PDF and JPEG explained.
Taking what we have learned in the previous section, and learning a few new things, we go all out and build a business card from scratch. This is a fast walk-through so get ready!
Think you memorized the shortcuts by now? Take this quiz and see for yourself!
Note: Mac and PC shortcut keys will be displayed side-by-side as Mac/PC. For example, CMD/CTRL + T.
