Joint General Meeting/Adobe Creative Suite User Group
Making a Photoshop Slideshow & Videos...Photoshop Can Do That?
As we all know, Adobe Photoshop is a very powerful image editing program, but did you know that you can also use it to add motion to your still images? In this training session, our own Ivan Taylor will demonstrate the steps involved in creating a compelling photo portfolio, adding motion and interest to your still photos. You will see how to arrange your sequence, adjust timing, and select transitions.
In addition, if your camera shoots video, you can import it into Photoshop. By using some of the powerful tools that are part of Photoshop, you can create simple edits to the video. After editing, you can color correct, add audio, and add titles to your video. Finally, Ivan will show how you can render the final version and choose from among multiple options for exporting your file.
Once the video is completed, see how to upload it to your web site, Vimeo, YouTube or another location on the Internet, and how you can use the video as part of your marketing strategy for your business.
At the end of the session, you'll be able to say with confidence that "Photoshop Can Do That!"
