Photoshop is the world's best-known photo-editing program. Artists, photographers, designers, and hobbyists all rely on Adobe Photoshop for image creation and editing. Discover the fastest and most effective ways to use Photoshop from an expert and former columnist for Photoshop User magazine.
You'll learn how to use Photoshop with detailed, step-by-step instructions that you'll have no trouble following—even if you've never used a computer graphics program before! And you'll have a lot of fun doing it.
Photoshop CS6 has a host of impressive new features for photographers, and you'll encounter a number of them. We'll begin with an introduction to the Photoshop environment. Next, you'll learn techniques for creating simple digital paintings (including some brushes that let you create the look of an oil painting from a photo).
Then you'll be editing your own photographs to get rid of dust and scratches, fix the color, and correct image exposure. You'll master techniques for switching the backgrounds on images and removing wrinkles and blemishes from photos, just like they do in magazines. You'll also learn about the new content-aware Move tool in CS6 that, like magic, lets you move something on an image while intelligently replacing the "hole" left behind.
By the time you finish this fun, hands-on, project-oriented course, you'll be well on your way to expressing yourself with the most exciting graphics program ever developed.
