Adobe Photoshop – Part 4 ‘A Creative Course’

08th Nov 2014 9:30 am at Brisbane

Photoshop-CS6-Icon_200 In Part 4 we uncover the Pen Tool, Channels and Adjustments?

As one of Adobe’s flagship products Photoshop is a complex and powerful program. Many photographers simply scratch the surface, only ever using a small percentage of Photoshop’s full functionality.

In our comprehensive series of workshops we will show you the “in’s and out’s” of the program and allow you to utilise features and functions you probably didn’t even know existed. Whether you want to improve and enhance your images through traditional digital darkroom tools, or create entirely new images through Photoshops’s creative tools and methods these workshops are for you.

In this session we will continue our use in Layers using the Selection Tools and Transforming. We will modify selections (saving and loading), apply and learn why Quick Mask and Layer Masks are handy tools plus introduce you to the marvels of Channels along with how grey-scale relates to channels and masks. We will also cover Colour Range and master the Pen Tool.

Plus from Bridge, Batch Rename, Photomerge and Proof Sheets; from the Edit Menu > Auto Align Layers and Auto Blend Layers; from the Image Command and the Adjustments Panel, an in depth study of the many Adjustments available.

Plus we review the Dodge and Burn Tools and include Blending Modes.

Conducted by Adobe Certified Expert and Adobe Certified Instructor, Graham Bliss, each workshop stands alone. However by attending all three you will gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of the overall program. Photoshop is a tool of the trade, whether you’re a professional or a passionate enthusiast, this program of workshops is an investment in your photographic future.

Suitable for PC and Mac users.
