Adobe Photoshop is the favorite program of graphic artists everywhere. This powerful software is also a favorite of amateur and professional photographers, scrapbookers, video artists, and hobbyists. Photoshop is one of the most amazing software programs ever developed. It's a fun and creative way to alter photographs and prepare them for print or the Web. This course, for the student who already knows the Photoshop toolset, explores new and better ways to create images and edit photos. The emphasis is on non-destructive editing - the features in Photoshop that let you easily re-edit and change projects long after they were originally created (and long after the Photoshop "undo" command has expired).
An image that uses layers remains easy to change. You'll learn how to save every single pixel in your original images so that you can always get them back. You'll learn how to use Layer styles, which let you add glows and shadows that you can easily change. And you'll learn all about Adjustment layers, which let you alter the exposure of your image as many times as you want. The new Smart Object feature even makes it possible to change white balance and exposure on a RAW format digital file long after the image is composited with another. You'll find out how to rotate, scale, and warp images - and remove the transformations if you don't like them. This course will help you take your images a giant leap forward in creativity and productivity. It's also a lot of fun!
