Photoshop CS6 One-on-One: Fundamentals is a concise and focused introduction to the key features in Photoshop, presented by long-time lynda.com author and Adobe veteran Deke McClelland. This course covers the image editing process from the very beginning and progresses through the concepts and techniques that every photographer or graphic designer should know. Deke explains digital imaging fundamentals, such as resolution vs. size and the effects of downsampling. He explains how to use layers to edit an image nondestructively and organize those edits in an easy-to-read way, and introduces techniques such as cropping, adjusting brightness and contrast, correcting and changing color, and retouching and healing images. These lessons distill the vast assortment of tools and options to a refined set of skills that will get you working inside Photoshop with confidence.
In this course, you've had a chance to come to terms with some essential concepts; things like pixels, layers and luminance. But you've also had a chance to build some real hands-on projects, in a few cases entirely from scratch. And this is just the beginning of what you can do in Photoshop. I'll have three more courses in this series including part two: Photoshop CS6 One-on-One: Intermediate, which takes up right where this course leaves off.
If you're looking to branch out, you may be ready to try out my regular weekly series, Deke's Techniques. It's a chance to take the tools you've seen so far and apply them in fresh and creative ways. But whatever your destination, we have a course to get you there.
