Venturing into Photoshop for the first time can seem a little overwhelming, but I like to think of it as the Home Depot of post-processing apps. Almost any tool you might want or need is there - but it isn’t really helpful until you know when and how to use it.
Let’s take a hands-on beginner’s look at Photoshop and add some important new tools to your post-processing workbench.
Here are the areas we’ll cover:
• Interface Basics
• Opening Files
• Tools and Panels
• Layer Basics
• Using Brushes
• Selecting/Extracting Objects
• Adjustment Layer Basics
• Reducing Noise
• Adding Text
• Using Plug-ins
I will provide attendees a set of images to edit in class.
• Your laptop with Photoshop CS5 or above with Adobe Camera Raw, both installed and registered.
• Your laptop power adapter.
• Notepad and pencil.
*Note: This is not a Photoshop Elements class, the menu system is quite different.
