Photoshop – Get Creative

Course Details

This course is essentially a follow-on course for those who attended the “Taking Photoshop to the Next Level” course. However, it is also for those students who have some knowledge of Photoshop and wish to develop their skills.  Please speak with the course Tutor before enrolling in order to ensure that you have the required skills.

This course builds on the previous course “Taking Photoshop to the Next Level”.  Students will start with an introduction to various blending modes and why and how to use them, why and when to use smart objects and smart filters.  You will look at the use of Photoshop’s various sharpening tools for creative and output sharpening, selections and how to turn selections into masks and the use of the refine mask tools for more complex masking situations.

Additional topics will be covered depending on the specific interests of the class.  As the course progresses and by agreement with the Tutor, learners will be encouraged to bring their own images to work on.

Course hand-outs will be available to assist you to practice the tools and techniques learnt at home.  Please bring a notebook and pen. You may wish to bring something to keep assignments/hand-outs in.
