00. Greetings from Deke
Greetings oni iv afrike greetings.
01. Browsing in the Bridge
The Adobe Bridge, a companion application that comes with Photoshop CS5, is the best place to get organized and oriented. Besides easily finding the file you want to open in Photoshop, you can sort, preview, examine, group, and compare your photos in the Bridge. And with Bridge CS5's new Export panel, you can save an entire folder's worth of raw format files as JPEGs for easy portability.
Navigation is about moving around inside an image: magnifying part of a photo so you can do detail work, panning to the area you want to modify, even stepping back and taking in the whole thing. Some of the best techniques covered in this video depend on OpenGL.
03. The Selection Tools
Photoshop's selection tools rank among the program's most fundamental capabilities. Simply put, unless you want to apply an operation to an entire image or layer, you have to first define the area that you want to affect with a selection tool. In this video lesson, you'll see a range of selection tools employed to move a model from one background to another, from the straightforward marquees and flexible lasso tools to the edge-detecting magic wand and quick selection tools. Then we'll finish with the fine-tuning refine edge command.
04. Brushes and Painting
Many of Photoshop's paint, edit, and healing tools rely on a common group of options and settings that Adobe calls the brush engine. These options include such elements of brushstroke behavior as size, hardness, roundness, angle, pressure-sensitive taper, and bristle type. Photoshop CS5 introduces some amazing brush features, like the new Mixer brush tool, which allows you to combine colors in your image to mimic real-life painting.
05. Layer Manipulations
Layers just might be the most powerful feature in all of Photoshop. Layers allow you to stack images on top of each other, apply settings to independent parts of your image, blend layers together for effects, clip one layer to another to limit effects, and more. And often you can do this with no destruction to your original image. In this video, I'll show you how to turn a regular woman into an otherworldly creature.
06. Color Adjustments
Photoshop Adjustments, designed to fix typical color and luminance issues in your images, are available from ImageAdjustments or the Adjustments panel. In this video lesson, I'll give you a close-up look at applying a typical color adjustment using the Brightness / Contrast feature and show how the three automatic adjustment tools, which are designed to quickly fix standard color problems, work in Photoshop.
07. Introducing Filters
In a program that seems to pride itself on its crowded menus, Photoshop's Filter menu is the most jam-packed of them all. Its commands (known generically as filters) range from extremely practical to wonderfully frivolous to just plain lame. We're not going to look at all the filters (that would be pointless) just the best ones. We'll get a sense for how they work as well as how to adjust their results.
08. Liquify in Motion
To get your bearings with Photoshop's powerful distortion tools, it's best to watch them in action. So in this video lesson, I demonstrate the Liquify tool that you'll see later in the book-based exercise. There's nothing quite like watching the occasionally wacky, always entertaining pixel-squishing and pixel-stretching power of Photoshop transformations in motion. I'll review all the tools you have at your disposal in Liquify, from the straightforward Warp to the surreal Turbulence.
09. Exploring Camera Raw
Adobe Camera Raw is a separate utility that allows you to process images captured in the raw format by sophisticated cameras. In this video lesson, I'll develop a raw file right before your eyes, bringing out detail and color that don't appear to be there at the beginning. I'll also demonstrate some of the newer features in Camera Raw: automatic noise adjustment, targeted adjustments, and the ability to save multiple variations as snapshots.
A mask is a way of creating a highly accurate selection outline, using the image to select itself. When you're crafting a mask, you can bring a wide range of Photoshop features to bear on fine-tuning that selection process. In fact, the most accurate masks require the combined use of more than one of the tools in Photoshop's sophisticated arsenal. In this video, you'll see how I created the alpha channel you used for our jumping puppet friend from back in Lesson 8. I'll show you Color Range, the Quick Mask mode, and the new improved Refine Edge command.
11. Creating Vector Art
We think of Photoshop as a pixel-based image editor, and normally, we're right. But Photoshop provides two exceptions, text and shapes, which are treated as vector-based layers. As long as these layers remain intact, you can edit them to your heart's content. And because they're vectors, you can transform them without degrading their quality. After this video lesson, Photoshop just might be your favorite tool for this kind of project, especially after I show you how to prepare it for a commercial printer.
12. Exporting for the Web
When you decide to put your images on the Web, you'll need to make different decisions than you would if they were intended for printed paper. Photoshop's got you covered with a handy feature called Save for Web and Devices. In this video lesson, I'll cover all the choices you need to make when using that feature, and show you how to take the same file that's at the outset of the book-based lessons and make it work for Web delivery.
13. Goodbye from Deke
