(whooshing wind) - Hi, and welcome to Photoshop CS6 Essential Training. My name's Julieanne Kost, and together, we're going to discover the most efficient way to use Photoshop to manage our images, enhance our photographs, composite multiple elements together, and automate our workflow. As Photoshop has evolved, it has developed into three distinct applications: Adobe Bridge, Adobe Camera Raw, and Adobe Photoshop. We will begin in Bridge, where you will learn how to download your images from a camera, organize and select the best photographs from a shoot, add metadata, rate images, and quickly make collections.

Once we have organized our images with Bridge, we will take our images into Adobe Camera Raw to start enhancing them. Next, we'll master all of the fundamentals of working with Photoshop including layers and masking, selections and adjustment layers, retouching essentials, compositing, blend modes, filters, layer effects, and much, much more. My goal is to have you creating professional results as soon as possible. So let's get started.
