Photoshop Image Editing Tools (Part 02)


Series Overview:


Experienced digital photographers will tell you that Adobe's Photoshop is the digital editing tool of choice. Photographers that know their way around the Photoshop application will tell you that it's an incredibly powerful tool with a myriad of solutions to everyday editing challenges. New Photoshop users can be challenged by the application’s depth of features and apparent complexity, but at Soft Lite Studios, we have developed a structured series of classes that will make Photoshop not only easy to learn, but fun to learn as well. Our 16 different Photoshop courses will not only allow you to dissect Photoshop into easy to digest pieces, they allow you to select just the class that are right for your editing needs.


Introduction:


In this class, the fourth (4th) in our sixteen (16) course Photoshop series, we continue our exploration of Photoshop’s image editing tools. Leveraging our existing knowledge, we explore some of the more advanced editing tools in Photoshop’s arsenal of pixel-bending power-houses. With these additional insights, you will become an image editing wizard, and you will be able to perform more advanced image corrections and edits.


Course Contents:


In the first section of this class we will explore some of lesser known, but still all powerful Editing Tools that Photoshop offers. At first blush these tools may look a little arcane, but we will show you many ways that these tools will benefit your editing workflow. As with most things in Photoshop, there is more than one approach to a task and these tools will give you some new and unique approaches to fixing unusual issues.


In the second section of the course, we explore some of Photoshop’s more advanced retouching mechanisms and the tools that support them. Ultimately a good retouching effort is one where the viewer can’t tell any retouching has been done at all. We will begin to explore the introductory use of layers in your retouching work.


Inevitably you will run into images that have challenging edits that need to be performed and in some of the cases, as odd as it may seem, the Brush tools are the best way to do them. In this section of the class, we will look at a variety of Photoshop’s Brush tools and way in which they can be used to perform complex and challenging image edits.


While we are learning all of the above tools, we will be working hands-on with a variety of sample and exercise images. Each participant will have ample opportunity to work on real-world images that have a variety of edits and corrections that are required.


Course Prerequisites:


Participants enrolling in this class should have the following knowledge / experiences prior to attending this class:


  • General operating system knowledge as outlined below

  • WRK222 (PS01) - Photoshop Files, Preferences and Color Settings

  • WRK224 (PS02) - Photoshop Interface, Panels and Tools

  • WRK232 (PS03) - Photoshop Image Editing Tools (Part 01)


General Prerequisites:

· Computer (with power supply)

· Photoshop (fully installed and ready)

· Familiar with computer basics (file management)


You will want to bring a laptop or computer to class if you wish to follow along using the exercise files that will be handed out. While most of the concepts and features demonstrated will be backward compatible with older versions of Photoshop, the instructor will be using the most recent version of the application. Many of the Photoshop concepts presented will be similar to operations available in Photoshop Elements. However, the instructor will not be able to make the translations of all exercises to equivalent features in the Photoshop Elements software. If you have recently subscribed to Adobe's Creative Cloud service, you will want to make sure that you have correctly installed the software locally and confirm its successful startup and operation before coming to class.


Many software complications, such as slow performance and lagging screen refreshes, are due to computer systems that are under-resourced. Continued satisfactory use of the software title covered in this course will be dependent upon your computer's configuration; please refer to the vendor's documentation to ensure that your system is adequately provisioned.


Last, but not least, you should ensure that you are familiar with the operation of your computer, its filing system and the shortcut keys and functions that it offers. A large percentage of the support issues that come up during class is rooted in the user not having knowledge of or a base level understanding of the operating system they are using on their computer. Most of today's mainstream software applications, provide features and functions based on capabilities provided by that computer's operating system. Failure to understand operating system provided functionality can lead to difficulty in understanding capabilities within the software we are teaching in class. Base level knowledge of your computer's filing system, storage locations, and operational shortcuts will go a long ways towards enhancing your experience in this course and with your computer system overall.
