Photoshop is the industry gold standard for digital image manipulation. Whether you’re preparing photos to post to online galleries or use in websites, or repairing scanned negatives and old photos, Photoshop will make the process infinitely easier and faster. This class will get you over your Photoshop fear by covering the basics of using Photoshop and the features from Creative Suite 3 up to CS5.5. We will focus on learning the workspace and interface, creating and fine-tuning selections, photo retouching, turning photos into flat graphics using paths, masking, non-destructive editing techniques, and exporting for print and the web. The instructor will also give an overview of 2D design principles, typography, and color theory as well as an introduction to Adobe Bridge, and some of Adobe’s online tools.
