Welcome

Hi! I am Deke McClelland. Welcome to Adobe Photoshop. First and foremost Photoshop lets you modify digital photographs. You can correct a photo to bring out every tone and color, retouch an image so that your subjects all look their very best, and selectively modify details so every nook and cranny of your image has impact. Everyone has heard of Photoshop and for good reason it is perhaps the most powerful computer graphics tool ever created.

The purpose of the following movies is to get you up and running with Photoshop in the shortest amount of time possible. I make no attempt to cover every feature in the software, far from it. Instead I show you just those features that you need to know to make every photograph look its impeccable best. My goal is to help you succeed. Specifically, I show you how to import and organize your photos and get them into Photoshop. I show you how to adjust brightness, contrast, and color to bring out the best in your photographs and I show you how to retouch away blemishes and sharpen details so that your images resonate with even the most casual observer.

Note that I assume no prior knowledge of Photoshop. If you happen to know a thing or two about the program, great. If not, that is not a problem. If ever you felt like you wanted to enhance your photographs, but weren't entirely sure what questions to ask this is the place to start. In the end if you feel like there's more you like to learn, I will point you in a couple of directions. In the meantime here's how to make the most of Photoshop.
