Hi, I'm Deke McClelland. Welcome to Adobe Photoshop. Now, even if you've never used Photoshop in your life, you probably know that it lets you modify digital photographs. That is to say, you can correct a photo to make it look its very best. You can retouch portrait shots so that every one you capture looks like a star. And you can selectively modify details so that every nook and cranny of your image conveys impact.
The purpose of the following movies is to get you acquainted with Photoshop in the shortest 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 make every photo look great. Specifically, I show you how to import and organize your photos. 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, as well as sharpen details so that your images resonate with even the most casual observer.
Note that I assume no prior knowledge. If you happen to know a thing or two about Photoshop, great. If not, no problem. If ever you felt you wanted to enhance your photographs but weren't even sure what questions to ask, this is the place to start. My hope is that by the time we're done, any fear you may have had about learning Photoshop will have vanished. In the meantime, here's how to make your photographs shine.
