Get started in Photoshop with dvGarage founder, Alex Lindsay. In a little over 3 hours, you will get a whirlwind tour of the Photoshop interface. Instead of trying to cover every element of the interface, Alex provides a blunt, production-oriented approach to Photoshop. This tour doesn't last for days or cover every tool and feature in its entirety but, instead, gives you a production artist's view of the application. Don't be surprised to hear “don't use this”, “don't worry about this for now,” and “I've never used this tool”. Rather than trying to provide a long detailed review, Alex provides a quick walkthrough designed to get you going.
If you see yourself as a beginner or even an intermediate Photoshop user, this disk will help you get off the ground quickly and start editing in no time! You'll learn the basics of the toolbar, major menu items and key palettes.
Included on the two CDs is a 2+ hour tour of the interface and another hour of “Applied Skills” where Alex walks you through the basic operations that you will probably need first. All the images used in the training are included on the disk so that you can try it for yourself.
Learn how to do basic color correction, image restoration, hand coloring, collages, and more.
While the training is produced in Photoshop CS, 90% of this disk covers information that would apply to versions as early as Photoshop 5.5.
