Introduction To Adobe Photoshop
So let's take a look at how to think about this class and then we'll jump into photo shop and get started. So by the end of this class, my goal is to have you learned to become confident in to actually start enjoying Photoshopped, not just going through steps that you might read online but actually knowing what you're doing in feeling confident. Then I want you to understand more deeply the most important feature. So instead of again just following steps, you actually know what the steps do and therefore you're not stuck following Cem prearranged steps that you might follow. Instead, you come up with your own techniques because he actually know how things work. And then I want you to be able to transform dull and ordinary looking images into ones that you can really be proud of that look great and also be able to combine multiple images together into a single photo shop file to create a composite that is better than any of the individual images you started with. And of course, we'll ge...
t into retouching and I want to show you how to truly think about the various retouching tools. So you can tackle jobs just like a pro would. So who is the class really designed for? Well, there's a wide range of photo shop users, and I tried to make it so. Beginners that want an in depth introduction to photo shop would really enjoy the class. And one of things that would be good about that is that we don't stay at a beginner level. Instead, you can advance in the intermediate and in some cases, even advanced techniques. As long as you've got a good foundation to start with, then you could be ready to get into those mawr intermediate advanced techniques. Self taught photo shop users usually have a very limited range of knowledge with Photoshopped. And so I want to be able to fill in the gaps in your knowledge if you're self taught. So you know how to be much more efficient at what you're doing and really just learn how to be better then longtime photo shop users. The problem is, Adobe comes out with new features and photo shop all the time, and sometimes those new features air hidden in ways that are not easy discover on your own. Sometimes you need to hold down a special keyboard, Charcot or goto, a menu that you're not used to exploring in order to find them well, if you're in advanced in a long time, user, you'll learn about a lot of those new features now without, though there will be some things that beginners will. It'll be too much for them, and that's on purpose. And that's so at the beginning of a session, it'll be great for beginner. But by the time a session is over, when we're ways through the class, you'll have a reason to come back in rewatch the class. Because if all I did was keep it at a beginner level, then that's all we got. I want you to truly become proficient at using photo shop, and therefore I'll have some things that you want to come back and review the class for, to take it on a second look. Ah, but then average users might just want to refresh her. Make sure that you're doing things efficiently because most the time you learn, like just the way that connected with you first is faras. Techniques go, but there's usually ways that are much more efficient where you can become faster at photo shop. And so if you're an average user, you've been using photo shop for a while. You go through this class. I think you're gonna find how to be much faster what you do. Then, if you want to learn more, I suggest you get on Facebook. If you remember Facebook, go to the Web address listed on the bottom of my screen. Right now it's facebook dot com, ford slash groups Ford slash Ben Wilmore, and you'll find a special Facebook group that is for this class. And that's where if you have questions about what we cover in class, you can post their in all, monitor the class, and I'll end up putting comments in, but also other people that are watching The class might pop in and help us well, because they might have a different perspective than I do. And so be sure to join that group now. There's already a bunch of people in that group because we used it with previous creative life classes, so it'll be really nice because you get a lot of feedback
