Description

Adobe Photoshop CC Masterclass, Part 1 is aimed at anyone who wants to get
into the creative industry and gain a rock-solid Photoshop foundation. Although
it provides a beginner-to-intermediate-level learning experience, it can be
useful for experienced Photoshop users since many self-taught users
miss out on many techniques and features. Familiarity with the terms
and specifications of digital imaging is also critical for anyone planning
to master Photoshop. With more than 10 years’ experience teaching
Photoshop, Martin formulates a course structure that is comprehensive,
but still streamlined enough to make it easy to follow and digest.

By the end of this course you will be comfortable with the terms,
specifications and workflow of digital imaging, with a special focus on
non-destructive editing in Photoshop.

As the title suggests, this course is a precursor to Photoshop CC Masterclass,
Part 2, which brings an additional 4 hours and 45 minutes of training content.
Together, the two series provide one complete and comprehensive course.

Martin was voted to be one of the top 10 Adobe instructors in the world by
student feedback in 2015. Along the way, besides the technical knowledge you
need, Martin will also teach you a lot about design principles, compositional
techniques, and plenty of best practices that he picked up and developed while
working as a designer and retoucher on projects such as Pixar’s Cars and Toy
Story, BBC’s Dr. Who, and Mattel’s Team Hot Wheels.

This training focuses on Photoshop CC 2015, but the presenter is sure to point
out where features apply to previous versions of the software.
