- Hello, I'm Tim Grey. I often joke that part of the reason I got to the point that I could write over a dozen books on Photoshop is that I wasn't a very good photographer and needed to fix a lot of problems with my images. Fortunately, I've become a better photographer over time, at least I like to think so, but good photographic technique won't solve every potential problem with your images. Throughout this course, I'm going to show you a wide variety of techniques for solving many different problems you might experience with your photographic images. We'll start by exploring some of the concepts related to image clean-up in Photoshop and then take a look at the primary tools available for performing clean-up work on your images.
Next, you'll learn a variety of different techniques you can use when cleaning up your images and gain a sense of which tools and techniques should be used in particular situations. We'll then examine some of the more advanced techniques you can employ to create the best final result possible. To help apply the concepts you've learned, we'll also take a look at a variety of real world projects that will allow us to blend various image clean-up techniques. The images I use in each lesson are included in a project files folder, organized into folders by chapter name with file names that reflect the content of the photo.
I encourage you to use these images to follow along as you go and practice the techniques you'll learn. Throughout this workshop, you'll learn many skills for optimizing your images. You'll still want to do all you can to ensure the best initial image in the camera but with the skills you'll learn in this course, you'll be able to resolve the issues you either didn't notice at the time image was captured or couldn't really do anything about. The result will be an improved eye for detail in your images, and photographs of a much better quality. Enjoy.
