Adobe Photoshop CS4 enables you to manipulate digital photos and projects in a variety of ways: from subtly correcting photo flaws to creating dynamic original artwork. This course explores the tools you need to select, correct, adjust, and even create images. Features such as the new Content Aware scaling, and those used to adjust an image's overall color and tonality are also included, as are Photoshop's equivalent to natural media tools used for painting and drawing. The course also delves into the exciting realm of Photoshop filters, layer styles, and blend modes.
The audience profile is a range of Graphic Design or other business/IT professionals needing to learn the basics of using Adobe Photoshop CS4 without any experience with the specific product. Students are expected to have basic computing and word-processing skills, familiarity with some web and design terminology, and experience working in a Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintosh environment.
