To start, this course provides a quick foundation for those photographers newer to Photoshop. Once the basics are down, Dan guides you through a series of valuable, time-tested techniques for enhancing your pictures. You learn popular techniques for rapidly selecting specific areas of a photo, so you can precisely improve the colors, contrast and details in your favorite shots. You also get a primer on alpha channels and when to use this scary-sounding (but actually quite friendly) option for protecting specific regions of your pictures when applying effects.
Need to get rid of distracting elements in the frame? No problem! Learn how to replace textures in nature and even remove objects without leaving a trace, using the powerful Content-Aware tools and options. Dan also shows you his techniques to sharpen fine details with the amazingly powerful (and fast!) Smart Sharpen Filter, now updated for Photoshop CC.
Go beyond basic retouching as you learn how to apply the power of Blend Modes to your photographic process. Improve contrast in the brightest and darkest areas of the photo, without sacrificing detail. Should you use the Multiply mode or the Overlay mode? This course explains both (as well as other modes), and shows you when and why to use them.
Best of all you get the full scoop on the latest Photoshop tech, including the Camera Raw Filter, the brand new Shake Reduction Filter, and a powerful new 32-bit HDR processing workflow. You even learn how to stitch and seamlessly blend multiple photos together, to create panoramic images with just a few minutes of effort!
Whether you need to remove distracting elements from your pictures in a realistic way, perfect your colors with tools that go beyond the traditional Photoshop Image Adjustments, or apply more advanced techniques to multiple exposures at the same time, Photo Retouching and Adjustment with Photoshop CC covers the right techniques to help your photos be the best that they can be!
