Overview

This Learn by Video title is specifically geared toward photographers who use or want to use Photoshop to make the most of their images. It combines over 10 hours of exceptional video training with a 120-page full-color guide to teach you what every photographer needs to know about Adobe Photoshop CS5.

After helping you master the program’s interface, expert trainers and authors Mikkel Aaland and Tim Grey tap into their years of photography experience to teach you core functions and new features in Photoshop CS5 including file management, image retouching, noise reduction, and making lens corrections.

Other topics include:

• Using Adobe Camera Raw
• Managing images in Bridge
• Masking layers
• Creating HDR (high dynamic range) images
• Making complex selections
• Color correction

And in the live action “Shop Talk” portion of the course, Mikkel and Tim meet in a North Beach photo studio to compare thoughts on everything from CMYK and the Pen tool to Content Aware Fill.

The lessons are wrapped in a feature-rich interface that lets you jump to any topic and bookmark individual sections for later review. Full-Screen mode provides a hi-def, immersive experience, and Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window so you can play the videos alongside your application.

As with all titles in the Learn by Video series, the project files used in the lessons are included with the course, and interactive review questions help reinforce what you’ve learned. Selected videos are also provided ready to be downloaded for viewing on your iPhone, iPod, or other compatible mobile device.
