Get the ultimate foundation in Adobe Photoshop CC, in this update to the flagship series Photoshop One-on-One. Deke takes you on a personalized tour of the basic tools and techniques that lie behind great images and graphic design, while keeping you up to speed with the newest features offered with Creative Cloud. Learn to open images from multiple sources, get around the panels and menus, and work with layers—the feature that allows you to perform masking, combine effects, and perform other edits nondestructively. Then Deke shows how to perform important editing tasks, such as cropping and straightening images, adjusting the luminance of your image, correcting color imbalances and enhancing color creatively, and finally, retouching and healing.

Topics include:
  • What is color correction?
  • Comparing RGB and CMYK color modes
  • Using grayscales and neutrals for color correction
  • Understanding pixels and bit depth
  • Evaluating and correcting images with histograms
  • Using nondestructive editing tools
  • Removing a color cast
  • Performing curve corrections in Camera Raw
  • Affecting creative adjustments
  • Retouching an image

Welcome to One-on-One

- Hello, this is Deke McClelland Welcome to Photoshop One-On-One: Fundamentals, Part 1 in a series of four video courses devoted to your ultimate mastery of the world's most powerful image editing software. The One-on-One brand is a promise. First you'll have me, a seasoned professional with more than 25 years of experience in the digital arts and more than 50 courses in the Lynda.com online training library. I'll mentor you through every facet of the software you need to know in the order you need to know it.

No crowded classroom, and no scheduling conflicts. It's just you and me, one-on-one, any time that it's convenient for you to learn. Second, One-on-One is project based learning. You'll experience the power of image size and resolution first hand in a way that leaves nothing in question. You'll build a layered composition from the ground up. You'll take a murky photograph and make it blossom with luminance, as well as correct the color balance of an image.

You'll select portions of images and combine them into a fully realized piece of artwork. And you'll take a portrait photo and turn it into a work of perfection. The result is contextualized learning. Photoshop's features will make sense because you apply them, sometimes independently, other times in concert, to a clearly defined task. And you'll leave each chapter with a sense of accomplishment. I really hope there are moments when you feel, "I rule!" Not me, you saying, "I rule, I can do this, and I can do more."
