Viewers: in countries Watching now:

This unique workshop from veteran trainer Maxim Jago is specifically for video editors who want to become more comfortable working with Adobe Photoshop. Maybe you have opened Photoshop before, looked at all the panels and options, and shut it down right away. Or maybe you've learned to do the things you need to do, but without any systematic understanding of how Photoshop works. Either way, this course shows you how to make the most of what Photoshop has to offer, using language that speaks to video editors and examining features that relate to the video-editing workflow.

Topics include:
  • Color modes, pixel shapes, and interlacing
  • Working with prebuilt templates
  • Understanding layers
  • Using Smart Objects
  • The alpha channel
  • Working with video in Photoshop
  • Using Photoshop documents in video editing applications
  • Working with adjustment layers, text, and layer styles
  • Color grading controls in Photoshop
  • Using Vanishing Point and Photomerge

Welcome

(music playing) I'm Maxim Jacob. I'm a writer, film maker, and trainer, working with broadcasters and independent media professionals around the world. Everywhere I teach, I get the same message, life is simple. Learn the basic principles, and everything else falls into place. This approach works fine when you first discover a technology, but people sometimes stop learning when they can do what they need to do.

I believe we should always strive to go further. Expand our skills and understanding because these are what enable us to create. Many editors have access to Adobe Photoshop, but make only basic use of it. If you've always wanted to get to grips with this powerful tool. But as I did originally, load it up, look it up and close it down again, this course is for you. Photoshop is a fearless application. It's so finely developed and so flexible, that range of options can be daunting. However, if you have particular goals in mind, and you understand the basics, you can quickly learn to achieve amazing things.

This is not a course on how to use Photoshop, because there are excellent alternatives already. Instead, it's for those people who understand video and want to incorporate Photoshop into their workflow. I'll be referring to the tools and Options. Using language and references that make most sense to video editors. And looking at the particular features that relate to video editing workloads. We'll have a quick overview of the Interface, dive into the Fundamentals of color Spacing, Pixel aspect ratios and Color profiles.

And then learn about core workflows with Graphic and Video media. Including using Photoshop documents in Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid media composer, Grass Valley Edius and Final Cut Pro. I hope you'll find these lessons easy to absorb. And by the end of the course you find yourself using Photoshop as part of your everyday workflow.
