Ladies and gentleman, welcome to this training course on Adobe Photoshop. On behalf of Video to Brain, my name is Chad Perkins. I've been an Adobe certified expert in Photoshop for over a decade now, but even more than that, I just love this application. It's so easy and so fun to use, and it's so Easy just to create great looking art, and really express yourself, and it's just a wonderful application. It's really used everywhere, so if you're looking for a career in almost any visual medium, Photoshop is the tool of choice. Photoshop is used obviously by photographers and anything you can do in print when it comes to using images.But it's also used in video by video editors, and visual effects.
And on the web, it's the standard for adjusting images, and it's used all over the place in Hollywood, if you're an interior designer, engineersUNKNOWN It really is the world standard application. No other image application is used anywhere near as much as Photoshop is. So, again, another reason I'm so excited to share this with you. And we're going to be really going from the ground up. I'm going to assume you know absolutely nothing about. Photography or Photoshop or image editing, and we're going to start from scratch.
And allow me, really quick, just to give you a brief tour of some of the cool things we'll be making throughout this course. one of the things is we're going to make this collage from scratch. We're going to take a regular old photo of some poles here, some cables and stuff. And a photo of regular old cement and we're going to combined those into this cool collague. We're also going to look at some cool photo manipulation techniques. We're going to start with this blonde woman in a yellow dress and we're going to believably give her blue hair and a blue dress. And we're also going to take this night scene with these tree, again created from scartch in Photoshop, and we're going to duplicate them and arrange them. We're also going to learn how to quickly, and easily remove blemishes. Even big blemishes, like this, and just a quick paint stroke. And then, boom, gone, in an instant, we'll show you how to do that. Also we'll go a little bit into graphic design.
I'll give you some tips and tricks on how to create text, and how to incorporate text into a graphic design We'll also make some fine art. We're going to take these little simple paintstrokes, that we'll talk about, and we will make them into this really cool little art project. And we'll also look at how to take a regular old photo, that's not that amazing And we'll turn it into a beautiful painting. And finally we'll also get a little bit more into graphic design, creating shapes and textures and what not for this baby announcement then and other things that we'll be doing, so. As you can we're going to run the gammit, we're going to take you from absolutely nothing to making all this cool stuff throughout this training course.
