A follow on from Photoshop Beginners exploring more in-depth techniques and gaining a fluidity of use through knowledge, application and refinement. We will be using multiple effects on imagery and look at how these work together to build up atmosphere. You will be taught a wide breadth of techniques in order to widen your perception of what Photoshop can do and also to introduce new ways of working that will hopefully inspire your workflow in Photoshop. We will also look at designing and preparing images for Print and Screen and look at best practice in relation to file sizes, formats and Document Setup. Each week is a different theme and starts afresh on a new technique or concept. Images are supplied and you will receive access to content to look at in your own time that supports your learning.
