This course provides a practical guide to enhancing photos with the most popular creative effects in Photoshop. Photographer, author, and teacher Chris Orwig shows how to modify color and light to add vibrance, drama, and emphasis. He then explores blur effects, including the Photoshop CS6 Blur Gallery and motion blur, to increase depth-of-field, add a softer focus, or make your still images move. The course also introduces the techniques behind digital infrared photography, and details a variety of effects that can add the popular analog look to photos: film grain simulations, vintage monochrome and color effects, and border and edge effects. The final chapters show how to use Photoshop's custom brushes and plug-ins for creative effects.
If you're a premium member to the lynda.com online training library or if you're watching these movies on a disk, you have access to the exercise files. Once you've located the exercise files folder you can double-click it in order to open it up, here you'll discover that I've organized the exercise files, all of the images that we'll be using this course in the different folders based on the different chapters. You can go ahead and open up one of those folders in order to see the photographs that we'll be working on in that chapter.
You also might find it helpful to work with Adobe Bridge, because in Adobe Bridge you can point to the folder and then view larger previews of those photographs and then open those images straight into Photoshop. Now if you don't have access to the exercise files, no big deal, you can either use your own images or of course, you can always just simply follow along. All right, Let's begin.
