Photoshop (12 month access)

Module 1- Photoshop

Lesson 1: Getting Set up with Photoshop

What is photoshop and how can it benefit me? This lesson will get you familiar with the image editing powerhouse that is Photoshop. Discover and navigate the many editing options with a hands-on demonstration of the Photoshop Interface.

Lesson 2: Adjustments

This is an exploration of the core adjustment options offered by Photoshop and will give you an insight into how each one works, and when and where to apply them. A firm understanding of how these strong adjustments work, will allow you to enhance your images and give them a new creative edge as well as creating some truly unique artwork! 

Lesson 3: Layers & Masks

Lesson 3 introduces you to one of the most important functions in Photoshop, Layers. Layers allow you to enhance images in a non-destructive and continuously re-editable manner. We look at the basic principles and concepts of using layers and will discuss all the different type of layers photoshop offers. We will also discuss masks, how they impact your image and their power within this editing software. 

Lesson 4: Selections

Before we proceed to create amazing composites, we must first understand how selections can be used to edit our images. Using our selection tools enables us to create changes to specific parts of our images. Combine all the information we have learned so far, with the variety of selection tools available and we are one step closer to making pictures perfect. 

Lesson 5: Composites

Photoshop is renowned for its ability to put multiple images together, cut someone or something out of a background and drop them in another picture, or simply remove an unwanted object seamlessly. To begin to develop these hugely creative and practical skills, you need to understand both image layers and selections. Lesson 6 will demonstrate how you can create your very own creative composite, a piece of artwork to be proud of. 

Lesson 6: Retouching

As a photographer, retouching an image is an essential skill to have. Photoshop’s highly sophisticated retouching tools allow us to remove unwanted skin blemishes as well as eliminate any distracting dust or scratches that might be visible on our photographs. Among showing the powerful healing tools found in photoshop, Lesson 7 also illustrates the artful practice of restoring an old damaged photograph and shows you how to bring it back to its former glory. 

Lesson 7: Colour editing

Understanding and controlling colour is key to successful design and image editing. This lesson will introduce you to colourheory. By understanding this we will also be able to make detailed black and white adjustments as well! 

Lesson 8: Effects

Put all your skills together to create next level images. Learn how to create Glitch, Dispersion and Double exposure effects. This lesson will push your skills to their limits! 

Module 2- Photoshop

Whether you want to turn your image into a simple postcard or create an elaborate advertisement, working with text in Photoshop is an essential skill to master. This lesson will look at how to effectively format text and discuss concepts such as alignment, justification, tracking, kerning, and leading. 

Lesson 2: Working with Text and Shape Layers – Part 2

Working with text means more potential for commercial employment. There are many effects you can apply to make people look twice and get the message. This lesson will show you how. 

Lesson 3: Scale and Perspective – Part 1

Photoshop contains several tools to adjust scale and perspective in images. In this lesson, you will look at some of Photoshop’s features such as Content-Aware Scale to resize an object and move it to another area within the image, as well as Puppet-Warp to manipulate perspective. 

Lesson 4: Scale and Perspective – Part 2

Small – far away. Get your perspective correct and add the 3D feel and depth to your images.  

Lesson 5: Photoshop Automation – Part 1

Module 4- Photoshop

Lesson 1: Actions and Batch Processing – Part 1

Photoshop Actions allow you to record the various steps you use when making a change to an individual image, and then apply these changes to multiple images all at once. This can save hours upon hours of image editing time and helps to develop an efficient workflow making it an important trick to know! 

Lesson 2: Actions and Batch Processing – Part 2

There are many actions already embedded in Photoshop. But creating your own allows for an efficient workflow, vital to photographers and designers alike 

Lesson 3: Illustrations in Photoshop – Part 1

While Adobe Illustrator is the preferred program of most designers for illustrating and drawing digitally, Photoshop can also be used for some types of illustration. This lesson explores these capabilities, and you will learn how to create an illustration from scratch!
