Photoshop: Designing for the Web (2 classes)


What has a square blue logo and more tools than a Swiss Army knife? Photoshop!

The good news is that web crafters can get a lot done in Photoshop without having to master every last part of the program. The aim of this two-class series is to help you hone in on the tools that will serve you the best as you design your site.

Whether you're a legit web designer looking to improve your skills, a code-hacking developer who wants to be able to better visualize your ideas, or a complete web and Photoshop newbie, you'll walk away from this course with a jam-packed skill set. Here are some of the goodies we'll be covering:

      • Workspaces
      • Keyboard shortcuts and other workflow tips
      • Non-destructive editing
      • Blending options
      • Smart objects
      • Animated gifs
      • Saving layer styles
      • Swatches
      • Text tool
      • Font files
      • Brushes
      • Patterns
      • Save for web
      • Image formats: jpg, gif, png
      • Piecing apart your project for the web
      • Layer comps
      • Color shifting

By the way, having Photoshop installed on your laptop is a plus, but definitely not required for this course. We're a friendly bunch, so you'll be able to team up with a neighbor and follow along with her.

We've had some students go through this class and apply the general concepts in GIMP (free alternative to PS). We offer no guarantees, but it has been done.
