As an advanced Photoshop user, you will want to gain complete control over the appearance of your images. Photoshop allows you this control. This session walks you through the various routes by which you can achieve the effect that you want, whatever that effect might be.

The key topics trained include:

  • Levels
  • Curves
  • Using ‘replace colour’
  • Advanced masking methods
  • Examining the filters
  • Useful tips and tricks
  • Creating popular effects

Layers are a key technique to allow you to rapidly add effects to images. This session shows you the most advanced layer techniques that Photoshop offers, like pattern layers. These allow you to add a pattern to any part of your image, or use colour channels to precisely control the exact colour of any element of your image.

The key topics trained include:

  • Layer Perspective
  • Locking Transparency
  • Layer Masking
  • Using Adjustment Layers
  • Clipping Layers Together
  • Understanding Smart Objects

Actions are a very useful tool. They allow you to automate repetitive tasks making your computer do the work for you. In this session, we’ll show you how to create an Action to automate your process and then how to record and run it. We’ll also cover how to process batches of images, rather than having to work individual image by individual image.

The key topics trained include:

  • Recording and using actions
  • Droplets
  • Batch processing
  • The file browser
