Photoshop is a raster graphics editor developed by Adobe Inc. It is one of the most popular programs used by graphic designers today for creating images, illustrations, animations and much more. Photographers also use it for retouching their images and creating masterpieces in the photography and art world. Almost all organisations worldwide use Photoshop so marketing and media professionals are expected to be knowledgeable about Adobe Photoshop and other Adobe products. We will therefore focus on providing you with the knowledge to move you from a beginner to an intermediate level designer.
To begin with, we will introduce you to the Photoshop library, the various library panels and the presets offered by Photoshop. What are Photoshop layers and why do they play a critical role in any project? We will explore all the colour palettes and swatches. Discover the cropping tool, the framing tools and various ‘healing’ tools, which do wonders when removing imperfections from your projects. Another essential tool that serves mainly in the process of logo design is the ‘Pen’ tool. We will demonstrate the correct way to use this tool to create curves, straight lines and other shapes.
Text is also a vital aspect of any design. The use of the proper text can do wonders for a design. The next section of the course will focus entirely on writing text, which font to choose and the various effects you can use to elevate any text. Did you know that Photoshop allows the use of default brushes and users can create custom brushes? We will describe how to create a custom brush and its many benefits. Finally, we will dedicate the last section of the course to teaching you about creating simple animations in Photoshop. This course is ideal for people who plan to get into graphics designing and those who enjoy designing creative digital artwork. So if you want to improve your skills in creating beautiful masterpieces, this is the first step towards doing so. Take advantage of this opportunity and enrol in this course today.Inicio Curso Ahora
