Photoshop has become an indispensible tool for photographers, designers, and all other creative professionals, as well as students. Photoshop CS4 Essential Training teaches a broad spectrum of core skills that are common to many creative fields: working with layers and selections; adjusting, manipulating, and retouching photos; painting; adding text; automating; preparing files for output; and more. Instructor Jan Kabili demonstrates established techniques as well as those made possible by some of the new features unique to Photoshop CS4. This course is indispensable to those who are new to the application, just learning this version, or expanding their skills. Example files accompany the course.
If you are a premium member of lynda. com Online Training Library or if you are watching this course on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout the course. The exercise files are photos and other image files that I use as examples as I teach each lesson. I have organized the exercise files by chapter, the same chapters that you see in the table of contents. You can see my Exercise Files folder open here on my Mac. Inside the Exercise Files folder, are individual folders for each chapter and inside each one of those chapter folders, are the individual exercise files.
In some movies, I'll ask you to open files into Photoshop from Adobe Bridge. In others, I'll just start with the files open in Photoshop and you can follow along. If you are a monthly subscriber or an annual subscriber to lynda.com, I'm sorry but you don't have access to the Exercise Files. But that's okay, because you can still follow along with the lessons by using your own photographs. I hope you enjoy using these files as examples to learn the basics of Photoshop.
