About This Course

Published 4/2014 English

Course Description

This course covers 5 main fundamental Photoshop skills that will allow you to branch your skills out further for more flexibility and speed. If it has been a long time since you have used Photoshop this is great as a refresher course.

You should successfully complete the course within 5 days, but remember it is practice that will make you fluent. To help with this further, high resolution images have been provided for you to practice your new skills.

This course consists of 5 in-depth video lessons to leave you with specific skill sets that will allow you to confidently practice on your own initiative.

This is a slow paced course deliberately designed to cater for all learning abilities. For those of you that already have a fairly good understanding of Photoshop you may find this course a little slow as I cover every single detail and also give examples of how it should not be done.

What are the requirements?

  • Genuine passion for design.
  • Patience to experiment and try out new tools and ideas.
  • Photoshop Software version CS3 or above.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • By the end of the course you will have a thorough knowledge of layers and exactly how to keep your projects well organised. You will also have a good understanding of how to resize and apply effects to hundreds of images within minutes.

Who is the target audience?

  • Newcomers to Photoshop
  • Existing Photoshop users looking to improve workflow
  • Photoshop users considering taking on their first clients

Section 1: Layers
How to professionally organise layers
Section 2: Make Photoshop work FOR you
Record actions to apply effects to images within seconds

This video lesson comes with 20 very high quality photos of flowers that I have taken in order for you to practice using the Automate Batch tool within Photoshop. It is important for you to keep copies of the images in their original condition before working on them. This is to allow room for mistakes.

Section 3: Masking Secrets
How to keep an image constrained within a specific shape using a clipping mask

This video lesson comes with 6 high quality photos that i have taken in order for you to practice using layer masks successfully. Practice turning these images to black and white and reveal one colourful section using the Layer Mask method on the video.

After you have become fluent, practice using this method to create effects using your own images.
