The Adobe Photoshop CC Visual Design Essentials Course follows the syllabus for the corresponding Adobe Certified Professional examination (Formally Adobe Certified Associate / ACA) and, as well as being suitable for beginners, who wish to become proficient in Photoshop’s wide variety of image editing features, the course can be used both as a primer or as a refresher course prior to taking the Certified Professional examination.
If you wish to become proficient in Photoshop’s wide range of image editing tools or wish to undertake a course of study to prepare you for the Adobe Certified Professional in Visual Design Using Photoshop CC examination, an industry-recognised qualification, then this is the course for you.
Adobe’s Photoshop CC is the world’s leading visual design software, setting the standard for digital imaging excellence with powerful image editing features available through an intuitive user interface. With Photoshop CC you can work with raw images from your digital camera as well as with leading image formats, such as JPEG, TIFF, and PNG, and this course teaches you everything you need to know about the Photoshop software, providing you with all of the skills required to demonstrate proficiency in digital imaging skills.
For the absolute beginner, the course is self-paced and highly-practical, teaching you the fundamental concepts and features through hands-on exercises and assignments and, if you have previous Photoshop experience, we investigate and try out many advanced features, such as Content-Aware Fill, creating placeholders with the new Frame tool, and advanced filters.
The course comes with the wide range of photographs you will need to practice all of Photoshop’s important features and, by the end of the course, you will have worked with images in a wide range of popular file formats, including Photoshop’s proprietary PSD format, and you will be using Photoshop like a professional.
We start with the basic theory, explaining about bitmaps and vectors, pixels and resolution, the RGB and CMYK colour models, and colour management settings, and go on to introduce all of the important Photoshop tools, including the wide range of painting, editing, selection, type, layer, and filter tools, finishing up with a great Camera Raw project and a Web Design project.
