Learn how to alter photos to better communicate your editorial message. Use Photoshop’s powerful features to enhance images, focus attention, and even create entirely new images. Combine multiple photos, type, and drawn graphics into realistic new images, cover and editorial illustrations, and web graphics. Class exercises employ real life projects and goals. What you learn will be relevant to your job and fun too.
You will learn to use masks and blending modes to create composites from multiple images. Learn to quickly create layer masks. Use layer masks to precisely control image edges and selectively apply adjustments to parts of images. Use opacity controls and Photoshop’s toolbox to fine tune seams between combined images to invisibly fuse them into a single image. Understand Photoshop’s many blending modes; master the most useful modes; and combine multiple bending modes for striking effects.
Use adjustment layers to apply tone and color corrections to photos and to apply creative effects. Manipulate photos to change their mood or selectively boost colors while avoiding odd consequences. Learn to warp images to realistically combine multiple images that have different perspectives. Add shadows to parts of images.
Add type blocks to images and fine tune type. Use type to create clipping masks.
Use shape layers to create complex shapes that Photoshop drawing tools can not otherwise create.
Combine exposures to create HDR (High Dynamic Range) images. Enhance images by simulating depth of field.
Retouch images; learn tricks for enhancing eyes, skin, and teeth. Remove distracting parts of photos.
Boost your productivity by applying adjustments to batches of photos, create reusable photo effects, and reusable templates. Learn to manage projects that require many layers and to link multiple layers. Use smart objects to speed and simplify image editing. Learn to modify images using non-destructive methods so you can later reverse changes and continue working on the same image.
