“The world’s best imaging and design app”, this course teaches the basic layout and tools, and how to begin to effectively edit your vision. This entry level course will cover many of the basics of the program, including where to find many of the key tools, what they do, and how and why to use them. Due to the intensive nature of Photoshop, we generally recommend to bring a laptop, but to follow along to see the myriad number of options available in the program.
In this course, we will be working with and explaining the following:
-Adobe Camera RAW
-The Toolbar Functions
-Basic Color and Contrast Edits
-Basic Filter Tools
-Creating layers in your image
-An introduction to adjustment layers
-An introduction to masks
This course is the first class to take when delving into Photoshop. There is no prerequisite, but computer knowledge is helpful.
This class will be taught using Adobe's Creative Cloud. Versions CS5, CS6 and CC are recommended for use with this class. Please be advised that Adobe Photoshop Elements has a very different layout and will not translate as well for instructional purposes.
