Although learning Adobe Photoshop from square one can seem daunting, this course gives you exactly the knowledge you need to get started creating practical everyday graphic designs with no prior Photoshop knowledge required. Acclaimed Photoshop instructor Deke McClelland quickly introduces you to the core Photoshop features you'll need to create your first Photoshop design projects, focusing only on those features designers use most often.
Hi, I'm Deke McClelland. Welcome to Photoshop for Design. Now, many folks regard Photoshop as a photography program, which, of course, it is, but about half the people who use Photoshop identify themselves as graphic artists and designers. And it's no surprise. Armed with Photoshop's wide array of filters and effects, you can take the ordinary world and turn it into something quite extraordinary.
The purpose of these movies is to introduce you to Photoshop in the shortest time possible. I make no attempt to cover every feature in the software, in fact, far from it. Instead, we'll focus our attentions on the features you need to create photo realistic artwork and designs. Specifically, I'll show you how to make the most of such acclaimed features as layers, filters and blend modes, I'll show you how to integrate text and vectors into your artwork and I'll show you how to select an image captured against one background and set it against another.
Note that I assume no prior knowledge. If you know a thing or two about Photoshop, great, but if not, no problem. And if you've ever wanted to combine art with imagery but you weren't even sure what questions to ask, this is the place to start. Now, in the end, if you want to learn more, I'll point you in a couple of directions. In the meantime, allow me to introduce you to Photoshop for Design.
