Photoshop CC Basic course

Photoshop is without doubt the most advanced photo editing application for print, desktop publishing and the web. Although Photoshop is accessible and easy to use for beginners, it offers endless possibilities for all your creative ambitions. Thanks to its many options and intelligent tools, Photoshop has for some time enjoyed a fantastic reputation among photographers and graphic designers. Photoshop Creative Cloud (CC) offers even more possibilities to improve, retouch and manipulate images than previous versions. And because Photoshop is part of the Creative Cloud, you can now save, access and share your work anywhere, anytime.

You will learn to use Photoshop's basic functions such as selections and layers and you will be introduced to its most impressive features.

Colour settings:
You learn the differences between RGB and CMYK. What to look out for when choosing a colour for the web, printed matter and house styles.

Resolution and DPI settings:
You will learn what to look out for when images have to be suitable for printing and/or the web. How to optimise them and do's and don'ts

File formats:
You will learn the important properties of the various image formats (jpg, gif, tiff, psd). This way you will soon know everything about which files you keep as high quality source files and which ones you can best use as end products for print or the web.

Topics

The following topics may be covered during the training:

  • The work area of Photoshop CC
  • Make simple photo corrections
  • Working with selections
  • Working with layers
  • Correcting and enhancing digital photos
  • Using masks and channels
  • Working with text and typography
  • Applying vector techniques
  • Creating advanced compositions
  • Creating images for the web
  • Working with consistent colours
  • Colour settings
  • Resolution
  • File formats
  • Tips and tricks

 

The depth of the topics can always be tailored to your personal learning goals and learning pace.

What is new in Photoshop CC compared to previous versions?

Photoshop CC offers many improvements over previous versions. Here are some of the most important innovations:

  • Smart Sharpen: you can sharpen blurry photos in a way that seems almost too good to be true.
  • Perspective Warp: You change the perspective of an object in a photo, as if you were standing somewhere else when you took the photo.
  • Camera Shake Reduction: Uses an intelligent mechanism to automatically reduce blur often caused by camera shake while the shutter is open.
  • Real-Time Image Asset Generation: reuse parts of images without cutting and copying.
