Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Photoshop: Automation.
I'd like to cover a few core things that will help you get through this course. First off, I'm going to assume that you have a basic working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop. Now by this, if you're an expert, you're still going to pick up some techniques. Because Actions and Automations are some of those commands that people just don't use that often. This doesn't mean that they're not useful, it just means they're a bit obtuse. A lot of times Actions and Automation commands require you to think a bit more like an engineer, logical work flow. What's going to happen after this step and before this next step? And because of such, a lot of folks avoid them because their brains don't work that way.
Well, my job here today is just to demystified. So, I'd like you to come in with an open mind and a willingness to learn. Hopefully, you're already comfortable with things like working with panel, such as the Layers panel, or opening up a new panel like the Actions panel. You should also be comfortable with basic file navigation, naming and using your computer. Now, it doesn't matter which version of Photoshop you're using. We're going to explore techniques that work in all of the ones that have shipped recently, but I will be sure to point out anything that's version-specific as we go.
With that in mind, let's jump in.
