- Hi, my name is Bryan O'Neil Hughes. I'm the principal product manager for digital imaging at Adobe. And I'd like to welcome you to Photoshop Insider Training: Rethinking the Essentials. This is a really exciting course for me because we get to challenge a lot of things that you've learned over the years. Photoshop's been around for over a quarter century. And there are a lot of different ways to do a lot of different things. I'm gonna show you the right way to do things. We're gonna go over a lot of stuff. We're gonna cover how to use Camera Raw to its utmost, not just for RAW files, but for non-RAW files and even video.
We're gonna talk about isolating your image. Whether it's via selections or actually removing content. We're gonna dig deep on layers and the latest methodologies and tricks for getting the most out of that nondestructive workflow. Photoshop's got a ton of new features for designers in it. And we're gonna look at what those mean to designers sure, but folks like myself as well who don't use a design workflow but benefit from these changes. We're gonna dig into Smart Objects. Smart Objects are wonderful.
They're flexible, they're powerful, and they can do things you wouldn't imagine. More important than anything, we're gonna explain what they do. We're gonna talk about the best way of doing things, and in a lot cases, when it comes to image adjustments, that means using the right tool for the job and dispelling some myths. There are certain things that you were told not to use where that's no longer the case. And there are other things you've been using all along that you're probably gonna wanna stop using. We're gonna wrap it all up by talking about finishing your work off. Whether it's sharpening, or shearing, or just taking it end to end and putting it in front of other folks.
It's a really fun course. I'm really excited about it. And again thank you for joining me for Photoshop Insider Training: Rethinking the Essentials.
