In Photoshop CS5 Essential Training, author Michael Ninness demonstrates how to produce the highest quality images with fantastic detail in the shortest amount of time, using a combination of Photoshop CS5, Adobe Bridge, and Camera Raw. This course shows the most efficient ways to perform common editing tasks, including noise reduction, shadow and highlight detail recovery, retouching, and combining multiple images. Along the way, Michael shares the secrets of non-destructive editing, utilizing and mastering Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw, layers, adjustment layers, blending modes, layer masks, and much more. Exercise files are included with the course.
If you're a premium member of the Lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you're watching this course from a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this training title. Now the Exercise Files are laid out in a parent directory, a parent folder. If you've copied that to your hard drive from the disc or downloaded it from the online web site, when you open up that particular folder, you'll see all the folders per chapter laid out for you in this one folder. With the exception of the first eight chapters, every Chapter has its own folder of images.
Chapters 1-6 are about Adobe Bridge and Camera Raw. So we have thematically put all those files in one parent folder, chapters 1-6. If you double-click on any particular folder, you'll see the images used for that particular chapter. The name of the file being used for a particular video will be shown on screen as you actually play that video. I actually encourage you, for this particular course, if you're going to be using the Exercise Files, to view them from within Adobe Bridge. So I'm going to switch over to Adobe Bridge.
You can see here is that Exercise Files folder being displayed in Bridge. When you double-click on a particular folder inside Bridge, you'll see nice thumbnails and see if there are any subsequent subfolders for you to navigate through to get to the file that you're looking for. I'm going to go back up to the Exercise Files parent directory here. Let's just choose chapter 12, let's say. You can see thumbnails of all the images being used for that particular chapter. Now if you don't have access to the Exercise Files, you can certainly follow along from scratch or use your own assets.
