Photoshop Bootcamp

Photoshop Bootcamp is targeted at those who are new to the Photoshop package and wanting to learn Photoshop inside out.

If you have never used Photoshop before and want to get to a high level quickly, this is a great way to do it. We start by introducing you to core concepts like resolution and colour modes, work with the Photoshop interface, and look at creating selections, working with masks, and using the cloning tools.

In the second part off the course we build on the skills you have already developed, working with advanced selection and masking techniques, working with perspective cloning and using advanced colour correction techniques. From using nested smart objects through to applying perspective warp, we cover all the core features of Photoshop.

If you are looking to start from scratch and get to a high level of proficiency with Photoshop, the Photoshop Bootcamp is a great way to do it.
