Transition your Photoshop skills to a role as an in-house designer. Learn how to leverage templates, presets, and libraries to save time performing common design tasks.
- [Tony] Hopefully for reasons of cost and control, but also for agility, it seems the number of brands and companies bringing design in house is on the increase, and that may be anything from a dedicated department to a small team or even a lone individual acting as we say in the UK, as chief, cook, and bottle washer, which basically means the buck starts and stops with you. Working in house will present you with a number of challenges, but if you rise to them, you'll be a stronger and more valuable asset to the organization you work for now and to future opportunities in your career.

This course, along with its companion dealing with Illustrator has been designed for you, and primarily is there to arm you with some application specific skills and concepts you may not have been trained for previously. It's all been built around your most precious resource, time and so the movies are all easily digestible in small chunks.
Some of the topics will require a little deeper investigation, and you can do that right here at a later time. But at least you'll be aware of the actual topic in the first place, which is important. You'll learn about best practices with developing work flows in Adobe's Creative Cloud and also I'll be giving you some suggestions on ways that you can save time and get things done quicker.
