Learn Photoshop - Beginners Course
Are you interested in digital artwork, photography, or design? Not sure where to really begin on your Adobe Creative Cloud Suite? No worries, I can help!
Photoshop is one of the most industry standard photo manipulation and digital artwork software internationally. It offers phenomenal features that make your photography stand out amongst others, and remove even the smallest mistakes. Photoshop is also a decent way to get into Digital Artwork with tablets, working with layers, thousands of customizeable brushes, and creating digital masterpieces. Utilizing these modern devices as a creative career or just a hobby can really make an impression on others!
This course, as part of a series of learning courses that I will be providing on Simbi, is the beginners course! It will teach you the core basics of Photoshop, such as:
- Creating a file, saving a file, exporting to different formats
- Different Color Modes (RGB, CMYK, Grayscale, Duotones, etc).
- The core selection tools: marquee tools, lasso, magic wand, transform
- Core creation and editing tools: paint bucket, gradients, eraser.
Each course will cover a lesson as if you were to create something for a friend or a client (i'm all about real world application). So hopefully by the end of the course you can share it with them!
I run the latest version of Photoshop, however if you are using an earlier version they are pretty similar and will just have mild interface differences. I am free to teach you through Skype or any other Video Chat software.
