Photoshop For Beginners
Getting started for the first time with Photoshop can seem daunting, but learning the basics and learning your way around the program can make things quick and easy. As with anything, practice makes perfect, so with a little practice you should be used to the interface in no time. Knowing what Photoshop will and won’t do will help you to edit your images and create digital artwork quickly and efficiently.
These lessons are perfect for beginners or anyone who just needs to refresh their skills, covering the essentials you need to know to get up and running with Photoshop quickly!
The course is structured in a way to maximize learning. We first go over how to do basic functions in Photoshop, then we go over into more detailed instruction, in which the students continue to follow along and learn more about
- Getting to know your way around
- Adjusting settings of new documents
- Navigating around the canvas
- Cycling through screen modes
- Working with multiple images
- Cropping and resizing images
- Layering images
- Layer blending modes
- Adjustment layers
- Layer styles
- Making selections
- Masking layers
- Color and lighting corrections
Students need a copy of Adobe Photoshop, preferably CC (Creative Cloud). The free trial would work as well.
Who is the target audience?
This course is great for students who are new to, or beginners in, Photoshop.
Many intermediate students might also learn from this course as well, for example, they might learn new keyboard shortcuts or about specific layering and masking techniques.
Students who are considered “experts” in Photoshop and know all shortcuts, layering techniques, and so on, will not benefit much from this course.
