This two day course suits both new and self-taught novice users of Photoshop. It aims to consolidate prior understanding and extend users to an intermediate level where they are comfortable creating compositions, working with both raster and vector based assets, and exporting images for both web and print purposes.
Attendees will learn the differences between RGB and CMYK colour modes along with the benefits and dis-benefits of designing raster (pixel) graphic. You will have hands-on practice at selecting and manipulating portions of images. The concept of layer-based design and the basics of retouching (enhancing, repairing, cleaning) images will be demonstrated.
The second day of training tends to intermediate features of Photoshop CC and for the digital photographers, the Camera Raw import process will be covered. Vector-based drawing will be introduced with a thorough lesson on the use of the ubiquitous Pen tool.
All demonstration media is provided. A guide will be provided showing shortcuts and tool directories for Photoshop (PC and Mac).
