Adobe Photoshop is one of the most popular and digital image-editing applications in use today. This industry-standard tool allows users to alter existing images, create type, use drawing tools, and combine all three to create complex, layered compositions for print, and screen. In this beginner workshop, you will learn how to navigate the program, become familiar with the program's functionality, and do some simple image manipulations.
This workshop will review:
- An overview of Photoshop's basic tools
- Non-destructive editing of photographs
- How to create original images, using imported images and in-program drawing and type
- Saving your files: different file types and their best applications (.JPG vs .GIF vs .TIFF, etc.)
