Before any type of print media (magazines and newspapers) is published, it is likely that Photoshop has been used to enhance the images. Learn the basic functions and uses of Photoshop (effects, layers, masking). Apply some effective and easy effects to make your photos more stunning. Learn tricks like changing eyes and hair colour too. It’s easy to make an average picture look amazing. Photoshop is part of the Adobe suite and a great way to become familiar with Adobe Illustrator as well.
This class is about the tools. Some of you signed up for this Basics Course despite knowing them already. These people will need to extend themselves with challenges and projects. I have some suggestions but am interested in seeing if you have any personal direction you would like to take.
