(music playing) Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to this training course on Adobe Photoshop. On behalf of video to brain, my name is Chad Perkins. I've been an Adobe certified expert in Photoshop for over a decade now. Photoshop is used obviously by photographers and print when it comes to using images. But its also used in Video Editors and Visual Effects. And allowing really quick just to give you a brief tour of some of the cool things that we're making throughout this course.
One of the things is we're going to make this collage from scratch we're going to take a regular old photo of some tables and stuff. And a photo of regular old cement, and we're going to combine those into this cool collage. We're also going to look at some cool photo manipulation techniques. We're going to start with this blonde woman in a yellow dress, and we're gona believably give here blue hair and a blue dress. And we're also going to take this night scene with these trees created from scratch in Photoshop. But we're going to duplicate them and arrange them. We're also going to learn how to quickly and easily remove blemishes. Even big blemishes, like this in just a quick paint stroke. Also, we'll go a little bit into Graphic design.
We'll give you some tips and tricks on how to create text, and how to incorporate text into a Graphic design. We'll also make some fine art. We're going to take these little simple paint strokes and we'll make them into this really cool little art project. And we'll also look at how to take a regular old photo that's not that amazing And we'll turn it into a beautiful painting. And finally we'll also get a little bit more into graphic design, creating shapes and textures for this baby announcement. So as you can see, we're going to run again, from making absolutely nothing to making all this cool stuff throughout this training course. Thank you so much for joining me, I'm really excited to get into this so let's get started.
