My name is Rich Harrington and welcome to Photoshop for Video Editors Core Skills. In this course, we're going to explore the essential skills needed when using Adobe Photoshop, to create graphics for use in a video edit. This course will also be applicable, if you work in motion graphics with applications like Adobe After Effects. Now, my background with Photoshop and video graphics goes way back. The very first book I ever wrote was called Photoshop for Nonlinear Editors. And that book tackled a lot of the core information we're going to look at today. However, things have continued to change with Photoshop with the introduction of non-square pixels, support for working with video files natively, as well as a wealth of other features that really extend its toolset.
Photoshop is absolutely an essential tool for creating video graphics. In this course, I want to demystify a lot of the tough things like, total resolution that you need, template sizes, what type of graphics you need, how to work with text, alpha channels, non- square pixels, a whole wide range of things. I have also thrown in a lot of design concepts as well, to really help you add some sizzle to your piece. So, we have a lot to explore. Let's jump in.
