Master the Techniques of Photoshop

Photoshop is the world's most popular photo-editing program. It's a fun and creative way to alter photographs and prepare them for print or the Web. If you're already familiar with Photoshop, this course will help you explore the program's more advanced features.

You'll master the techniques of non-destructive editing so you can re-edit, re-use, and change projects long after they were originally created (and long after the Photoshop "undo" command has expired). If you like scrapbooking or you want to make page layouts that you can fill with graphics, you'll appreciate the reusable templates you can create with Photoshop CC.

You'll also learn how to save every single pixel in your original image, and use Smart Objects to crop or resize an image and get it back to its original size months afterwards. (You'll even gets some tips on how to warp Smart Objects that will make the tabloid newspapers jealous!) And you'll see how to make adjustments to your images, such as shadowing and embossing, that can be edited at any time without destroying the original image.
Whether you want to use Photoshop to edit photos, design scrapbook pages, or do original artwork, this class will give you the building blocks you need. You'll take a giant leap forward in creativity and productivity—and you'll also have a lot of fun!

There are 12 units of study

Introducing Layers
In this lesson, you'll create, view, and hide layers. Why do layers matter? Well, they open a world of opportunities for fine-tuning your images. You can edit a layered image nondestructively, so you don't have to start over if you make a mistake or need to change something.

Manipulating Layers
Today we'll focus on the clues Photoshop gives to explain exactly what you're doing to a layer as you're working. You'll create, move, duplicate, lock, unlock, cut, and paste layers. Knowing this information will let you alter images quickly and nondestructively . . . and the lock commands will help you prevent others (and you!) from accidentally altering your work.

Introducing Smart Objects
Take advantage of Smart Objects—the most awesome and significant innovation in Photoshop since the layers feature was introduced. You can place a RAW-format photo (or JPG or TIF) file inside the Smart Object and re-edit it in Camera RAW anytime you want. You'll discover how to crop and resize photos nondestructively using Smart Objects, and you'll love the way they let you make a protected package out of an image.

More Smart Effects With Smart Objects
Today you'll see how you can make an individual layer in an image larger or smaller, rotate it, and use the amazing Warp command. And you can reverse all these changes anytime you want—if you make them on a Smart Object layer. You can even use filters nondestructively, so long as you apply them to a Smart Object (gee, those come in handy!). You'll also create a pear that, when cut open, has an orange inside it.

Using Adjustment Layers
Each time you edit the exposure in an image, you lose image quality. But what if there were a way to edit the exposure as much as you wanted and not hurt the quality? There is! An Adjustment layer makes no permanent change to the image, and you can stack up these layers as you wish. You won't ever want to apply a regular Levels command or Adjustment command directly to an image again.

Introducing Layer Masks
In this lesson, you'll find out about layer masks—another way that Photoshop lets you have your cake and eat it too. If you bring a picture of little Johnny onto a new background image, and you erase all the stuff that was in the background, what happens if you change your mind? You'd better hope you have the original image somewhere, and then you're in for a lot more work. However, if you use a layer mask, you'll keep every pixel that's in the original image and hide the parts of the original that you no longer wish to see.

Image Restoration and Retouching
Did the dog eat Grandmother's portrait? Or did time and water do that damage? No matter. Using layers makes it easier than ever before to restore some of your treasured family heritage. You'll get ample practice with that today. Again, the theme of this lesson is nondestructive editing, which means working in layers so that you can always change your mind about a correction without having to begin again.

Grayscale and Gradient Masking
What happens if you want to place a person into a swimming pool or the ocean using Photoshop? To make the composite realistic, you need to transition from total opacity above the water line to total transparency below it. You'll learn that skill today as you work with grayscale and gradient masks. You'll also experiment with vignette edges and other edge effects, plus you'll create a Web page header.

More Mask Techniques
One of the most common ways to lose sleep while using Photoshop is to try to add a new background behind a model with wispy, flowing hair. Hair and fur have always been the bane of Photoshop users. Photoshop can help, however. You'll learn some new tricks today as we explore some commands on the Masks section of the

Clipping Masks and Layer Groups
Have you ever wondered how to put images inside type like those old postcards for various cities? You'll find out today. It's called a clipping mask, and it's a digital version of spreading glitter onto a paper that has a design drawn in glue—the glitter only sticks to the glue. In this case, the new layers only stick to the base layer in the clipping mask. Making a clipping mask is easy, but it provides one of Photoshop's "wow" moments.

Luminosity Masking
Photoshop can use the values in an image to correct the image. That sounds scary and mysterious, but it's actually easy to do. Today you'll create luminosity masks and use them to correct images and to develop false duotone images and wonderfully creative image composites. This lesson should nurture your creativity and yet give you some solid ways to add punch to an image or to create stunning sepia tones.

Creating Complex Composites
In this course, you've created composites in so many ways. But there's still more to learn! Today you'll create an image that has a different photo in each color channel. You'll use Content-Aware Scale to make unusual adjustments to your image size. You'll try a wonderful stained-glass framing technique. And you'll finish the course with a fun assignment that lets you put together everything you've learned.
