Photoshop for Bloggers

This is a self paced class.


Class taught by:

Sarah Rhodes

In Photoshop for Bloggers, photographer Sarah Rhodes will cover just about everything you need to pump up your Photoshop game. You might be brand new, having never opened photoshop before, or you've played around with it some and are ready to dig deeper. You'll learn all about each of your palettes and windows, adjustment layers, how to edit people, how to create your own actions, how to make dynamic collages easily, how to switch heads and change background colors, how to make animated GIF files, and much more. This course will focus on being technical, efficient, and creative! And most importantly, you will learn that Photoshop isn't as scary or overwhelming as you might think it is!

It is recommended that students have Adobe Photoshop before starting the class (even if you've never opened it!). We recommend the monthly subscription of Photoshop and Bridge from Adobe's Creative Cloud, which is what the course will be taught from. The course lessons are applicable to Photoshop versions CS3 and newer. Users of Adobe Photoshop Elements might find some lessons within this course useful, but overall, we do not recommend this course for students with Elements as many lessons will not be applicable.
