The third part of the popular and comprehensive series Photoshop CC One-on-One follows industry pro Deke McClelland as he plunges into the inner workings of Adobe Photoshop.

Welcome to One-on-One

- Hello, this is Deke McClelland. Welcome to Photoshop one-on-one advanced, part three in a series of four video courses devoted to your ultimate mastery of the world's most powerful image editing software. One-on-one is all about project-based learning. You experience Photoshop by rolling up your sleeves and creating compelling projects for yourself. That way, you'll be better prepared to create your own projects in the future. In this course, you'll learn how smart objects project your images from harm and allow you to create copies linked to a single original.

You'll use a curves adjustment layer to correct the luminescence of a challenging photograph. You'll learn everything there is to know about processing images in camera raw. You'll create breathtaking depth of field effects using the blur gallery. You'll learn the basics of every blend mode available in Photoshop. you'll define complex selections using color range and refined edge and you'll experience the power of the pen tool, which allows you to select anything, one point at a time.

The result is a contextualized learning program. Photoshop's features make sense because you apply them to a clearly defined task and you leave each chapter with a sense of accomplishment. I really hope there are moments where you feel, I rule! I did this and I can do more. One last item, Photoshop is part of the creative cloud, which makes it a fluid application that may update to any extent at any time, as will this course.

So check back every so often because I'll be updating and adding movies whenever they need attention. Now without further ado, let's get to work.
