Editing Video in Photoshop CS6
Video duration: 0s 1h 55m Appropriate for all


With the release of Photoshop CS6, Adobe introduced the ability to edit video footage. Author Rich Harrington guides you through this brand-new workflow, from building a sequence to working with audio and exporting your video in a variety of high-quality formats. The course also covers how Photoshop's strongest feature, its image enhancement toolset, translates to video, from fixing under- or overexposed footage, performing color balancing, and adding vibrance and contrast to special effects, such as converting to black and white and using Smart Filters to soften skin.

Topics include:
  • Understanding the video file formats supported in Photoshop
  • Controlling playback in the Timeline
  • Building a sequence
  • Organizing and editing A-roll and B-roll footage
  • Adding transitions
  • Adjusting volume
  • Adding music
  • Color balancing a shot
  • Adjusting contrast
  • Adding a lower-third graphic
  • Animating text
  • Exporting to H.264 or QuickTime


- Hi, my name's Rich Harrington, and I'd like to welcome you to this class where we're gonna explore the features of editing video in Adobe Photoshop CS6. We'll start off by taking a look at the Photoshop timeline. Next, we'll start to build a sequence. Once we've built all the pieces, we'll explore correcting color and exposure issues, to make a better, more polished video. Once that's all done, you'll publish the video, to multiple formats for web or multimedia delivery. This kind of seems like coming full circle to me. The first book I ever wrote was a book called Photoshop for Non-Linear Editors.

Which was later renamed, Photoshop For Video. And it was all about using Adobe Photoshop to create graphics for video editing. Well now, Photoshop has video editing built in, and there's a lot of things it does and doesn't do, and we're gonna explore those throughout this class.
