Adobe Photoshop Level 1

  • Photoshop Classes

Adobe Photoshop Level 1 is a four-part series beginner’s course designed to teach those students with little or no background in Graphic Design and/or manipulation of images. This course will help a beginner user to understand how to make selections, use layers effectively, what different types of images are, how to edit and manipulate images in Photoshop, and some of the other basic tools that are extremely valuable.

This class is hands-on and intensive, but designed to help make difficult topics easier to understand.  Your instructor, an Adobe Certified Expert, will work with you closely to make sure that you avoid common mistakes in Photoshop and apply best practices when possible.

Class Objective: You will understand and use the various elements in the Photoshop interface so as to efficiently work with the software. You will use the different tools in Photoshop for selecting parts of images and identify the need for having layers in a Photoshop document. You will also organize the different components of the design as layers. With the layered Photoshop document thus created, you will apply layer effects and other special effects in order to enhance the appearance of the design. Once the design is finalized, you will save images in both print and web formats.

Target Student: Adobe Photoshop Level 1 is intended for a diverse audience including, but not limited to, computer-savvy professionals who want to create and enhance graphics for marketing materials, newsletters, blogs, and websites; photographers who want to work with and prepare photos for print or web; students with an interest in graphic design or those with novice design skills; and professionals who want to learn and use Photoshop as a complement to other programs, such as Illustrator.
