Adobe Photoshop software, the professional image-editing standard, helps you work more efficiently, explore new creative options and produce the highest quality images for print, the Web and anywhere else.
In this class you will learn how to turn photos into realistic painted art. You will learn 3 different painting styles and a graphic design style. Everything is completed in Photoshop.
We cover advanced Photoshop masking and how to use and edit complex Photoshop actions plus how to make difficult selections in Photoshop as well as several other techniques.
All of the custom Photoshop brushes, actions, movie tutorials and relevant software for this class are yours to keep as part of the class.
All of these photo painting techniques are taught to you using a mouse. You do not need a graphics tablet but you can bring your own tablet if you prefer using one.
