Learn Adobe Photoshop CS5 by Video: Core Training in Visual Communication




This complete training program from Adobe Press and video2brain combines over 21 hours of exceptional video training with a full-color 120-page guide to teach you the fundamentals of Adobe Photoshop CS5 as well as the basic principles of image editing. Trainers Kelly McCathran, Ted LoCascio, and Scott Citron show you how to use essential commands and tools to retouch pictures, combine type with images, and create dramatic visual effects.

Topics include:

• Creating a panoramic photograph
• Converting a color image to black-and-white
• Working with 3D objects
• Removing unwanted details from an image
• Customizing keyboard shortcuts
• Creating and managing layers
• Exporting and printing images

and more!

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 Adobe Photoshop CS5.

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.

This Adobe-Approved title is structured around the objectives of the “Visual Communication using Adobe Photoshop CS5” exam at the Adobe Certified Associate level.
