There's nothing like having a teacher at one's side when learning a new program--especially one as powerful and complex as Photoshop CS2. But a private tutor is a luxury few users can afford. With this DVD, they don't need to! Adobe Certified Instructor Dave Cross provides all the essential information beginning users need to dive right in and start using the image manipulation program immediately! Throughout, the focus is on the practical advice that will get users familiar with the program fast. In short order, Dave provides clear, succinct explanations of pixels, resolution, color modes, and file sizes; how to set up the workspace; which tools to use for what; how to take advantage of the History palette and layers for making changes; how to use Photoshop's selection tools effectively (and why this is so crucial); methods for adjusting and retouching images; techniques for cropping, transforming, and using filters; and more. A slew of timesaving tips and shortcuts ease the way!
