Have you looked at a photo and wished you were there, or wondered what the scene looked like to the photographer? Now you can bring your photos to life by adding motion and depth to your images. Author Rich Harrington reveals how you can transport your photos into a three-dimensional world using Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. The course shows you how to select the right images and resolutions; how to use masks and layers to build the composition in Photoshop; and how to animate the camera and light the scene in After Effects.
Hi, my name is Richard Harrington, and today I'm going to share with you some of my favorite techniques for designing motion graphics that use photos. Now, what I'm going to show you is built upon a lot of years of practical use. I was a History Minor in college and a Journalism Major, and so I've always been enthralled by photo journalism and telling stories. I've also worked on a lot of documentaries through the years, and I really enjoy taking pictures and bringing history to life. To do this, we're going to use photos along with Photoshop and After Effects to layer those photos, split them into 3D space, and then move the camera through virtually.
There are a lot of cool techniques, and this is definitely an advanced course that builds upon a lot of other skills. However, you're going to be able to jump in as long as you've got a base understanding of Photoshop and After Effects and really get some powerful results. We've got some real-world projects to show you, as well as some techniques that are going to be built upon different types of photos, so there is lot to explore. Let's begin.
