Advanced Techniques with Brushes in Photoshop CC


Advanced Techniques with Brushes in Photoshop CC


Class Description

The brush tool allows you to paint onto your image in a way that makes your final photo truly a work of art. Hollywood high-end retoucher Lisa Carney goes in depth on how to control and take advantage of the opportunities that brush tools give you. With the 2017 updates to Adobe® Photoshop® CC®, using brushes has become even easier. 

Lisa will teach:

  • How to create custom brushes
  • Organizing techniques
  • How to illustrate in Photoshop® for the “non painter”
  • Retouching with brushes for hair and skin

There are many different ways to use brushes within Adobe Photoshop, and you can start to master them with this in-depth course.



Lisa is extremely knowledgeable of the PS Brushes topic covered in this course and she explains everything very thoroughly. Her sense of humor and style made the class fun. She is great at giving catch words and phrases to help you remember what she covers. I feel like my knowledge and abilities in the use of the PS brushes are more clear and polished. Thank you Lisa!


I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The course contained all sorts of good information and was easy to follow. The course was well organized and I appreciated the handouts which helped in learning the material contained in the course. I am part of a photography interest group in PA and we spend time teaching each other. I learn and then share with the group. During our last meeting I showed how to paint on a path based on Lisa's last session in these classes. Lisa is upbeat and enthusiastic and it shows in her teaching. Would recommend the course if you want to learn more about brushes and incorporate it in your creative endeavors.

Amazing class!!! Lisa Carney is an amazing instructor and gives so much valuable information and as always so much of herself. I absolutely love learning from her and will purchase every class she instructs. This is another truly amazing class, full of information and of course lots of laughter. I have a whole new outlook on Photoshop brushes. Well worth the money, hands down.
