Welcome

- Hi! My name is Chris Orwig. You know new features in Photoshop are always exciting, yet they're added so frequently now can be hard to keep up. Well, that's where is course comes in. In this course, we'll focus in on those new features which are most relevant to Photoshop's core and that is how we can use Photoshop to improve our photographs. In this course, we'll cover new features like focus area which gives us the ability to build a selection based on the in focus areas of the frame. We can then use that selection to apply some creative corrections like to modify color and tone or to sharpen a select area of the photograph or even to combine multiple images together in one frame.

We'll talk about how we can improve our retouching when working with our content aware tools. We will look at how we can take advantage of color torrents which allows us to achieve even more seamless results. We'll examine how we can use a few blur filters and how we can add a circular spin to our image to add some motion or how we can create a more creative or free-flowing blur which follows a path. And we'll examine how we can use a new feature in Adobe Camera which gives us the ability to preview the before and after view of our photographs.

Now, we'll be covering all of these features and more and the goal of this course isn't to simply showcase the features but to really talk about how they work so that you can begin to use them right away. Alright! Well, if you are ready to dive in, let's begin!
