Photoshop CS6 One-on-One: Fundamentals is a concise and focused introduction to the key features in Photoshop, presented by long-time lynda.com author and Adobe veteran Deke McClelland. This course covers the image editing process from the very beginning and progresses through the concepts and techniques that every photographer or graphic designer should know. Deke explains digital imaging fundamentals, such as resolution vs. size and the effects of downsampling. He explains how to use layers to edit an image nondestructively and organize those edits in an easy-to-read way, and introduces techniques such as cropping, adjusting brightness and contrast, correcting and changing color, and retouching and healing images. These lessons distill the vast assortment of tools and options to a refined set of skills that will get you working inside Photoshop with confidence.
Saving your work may seem a simple matter of choosing the Save command, you know, like it is in other programs. But if you haven't guessed yet, Photoshop is not other programs. In fact, one of Photoshop's longstanding claims to fame is it's support for every image file format ever invented. You don't need to know about all of them, but you do want to know the ins and outs of four key file formats that are the standards of the print, interactive and online industries.
These are .tif, .png, .jpg and Photoshop's native format .psd, the last of which is how you save layers. Plus Photoshop CS6 includes an Autosave feature that will recover your work in the event of a crash. Watch the following five movies and you'll know everything.
