Course Description

Adobe Photoshop is a complex graphics and image editing software and paint program.  Chances are, you've heard of Photoshop frequently in the past even if this will be the very first time that you use the program.  Adobe's Photoshop program has become a mainstay with graphics designers, professional photographers, and even hobbyists to edit graphics as well as create and manipulate images.  It's fun to use, and it can turn the most amateur photographer to a professional with just a few clicks of the mouse.

 If you've ever used any software program to edit graphics or images before, then the Photoshop interface may seem familiar to you and some things may be quite easy to learn.   The reason is because most image editing programs on the market today are based on the Photoshop program.  Everyone wants to copy it because it is simply that convenient and effective.  However, Photoshop is by far the most extensive program available and offers the most features and options. 

Over the duration of this course, you're going to learn how to use Photoshop CS4.   You'll learn the basics so that you can complete the most basic of tasks, but you'll also get the chance to delve into some advanced features.  Whether you're a graphics designer or photographer who wants to improve your Photoshop skills – or a hobbyist who enjoys editing and manipulating images – you'll learn everything about Photoshop that you need to know in the upcoming lessons.
