Course contents

  • The Editing Environment
    To make the best use of its extensive editing capabilities, you must first learn to navigate the work area and how to adapt it to your own workflow. Open and view multiple files, navigate by magnification and panning.
  • Acquire, Catalogue and Create
    Understanding the characteristics of digital images is key to successfully deconstructing and editing. Learn how to browse and organise files in Bridge, create new documents and save files.
  • Crop, select and mask
    Learning how to select areas of an image is of paramount importance - you must first select what you want to affect and leave your images intact by revealing and concealing rather than deleting with masks. Arrange compositions with layers.
  • Retouching
    Learn how to correct capture defects and enhance critical parts of an image with Photoshop's 'airbrushing' tools. Remove unwanted details; organically manipulate parts of your images and scale without distorting.
  • Colour and tone
    Photoshop can enhance, repair and correct the colour and tonality in an image. Make images brighter, darker, boost contrast or change the colour of a product. Breath live into your images with powerful Camera Raw editing tools.
  • Filters and effects
    Use filters for a wide range of purposes. From sharpening to drop shadows, apply special art effects that give your image the appearance of a sketch or impressionist painting. Insert logos and other artwork in perspective to prototype a concept.
  • Output
    Preview, soft proof and hard proof artwork for output to screen device, web and print whilst striking the appropriate balance between file size and image quality every time.
