Photoshop is one of the most amazing software programs ever developed. It's a fun and creative way to alter photos and prepare them for print or the Web. In this course, you can take your Photoshop skills to the next level by exploring more advanced features in Photoshop that let you easily re-edit projects long after they were originally created (and long after the Photoshop "undo" command has expired).
These techniques, called non-destructive editing, let you work faster and reuse parts of images over and over again. If you like scrapbooking or want to make page layouts that you can fill with different graphics, you'll learn how to create reusable templates.
You'll learn how to save every single pixel in your original image so you never have to say, "I'm sorry I tossed that information." You'll see how to use Smart Objects, so that even if you crop or resize an image, you'll be able to get it back to its original size months afterwards. (And you'll learn some tricks to warp Smart Objects that will make the tabloid newspapers jealous!)
Whether you're a photographer who wants to use Photoshop to edit photos, a scrapbooker, or an artist, this course will teach you the building blocks you need to unleash your creativity. It's also a lot of fun!
