Digital photographers using Adobe Photoshop sometimes get so caught up in working efficiently and mastering complex techniques that they can forget photography is at heart a creative endeavor. In this course photographer and author Tim Grey encourages you to explore how you can leverage the power of Photoshop to express your creative vision. Learn how to apply various creative effects related to tonality, color, artistic filters, creative borders, image montages, and much more. Along the way, see every detail of how these effects are achieved so you can adapt them to suit your own purposes. The course concludes with a series of projects that involve the use of multiple creative effects for a single image.

> > Hi, I'm Tim Grey. Photographer, Author, and Educator. I've written over a dozen books, taught numerous in person workshops around the world, and created several video training workshops with video to brain. Photography is an art form of course, and there's seemingly countless ways to express your creativity in the camera... This includes using exposure settings, choosing a particular lens, finding just the right vantage point from which to photograph, waiting for the best lighting conditions, and many other considerations.

With Photoshop of course, you can take that creativity to new heights, as you'll see in the lessons in this course. We'll start off by exploring some of the concepts related to expressing creativity in Photoshop. Then we'll dive right into some of the basic methods for applying creative adjustments to help you get a sense of workflow and methods in Photoshop. Next we'll take a look at a wide variety of creative effects you can apply. These include tonal effects, color effects, filter effects, image montages, artistic impressions and much, much more. After covering many creative effects we'll also explore several real world projects aimed at giving you a clearer idea of how to consider which creative effect might be most appropriate for a given photograph. The images I use in each lesson are included in a project files folder organized into folders by chapter name, with file names that reflect the content of the photo.

I encourage you to use these images to follow along as you go. And practice the techniques you'll learn. I've had great fun producing these videos. And hope you find them enjoyable and informative. I'll hope to have the opportunity to see some of the creative results you come up with after completing this course. Enjoy.
