ExpertRating Online Photoshop Course (CS3-I)
Coverage (6 weeks program)
Wednesday - Lesson 01
Your journey begins.
Whether you're an aspiring graphic artist or a
weekend photographer, Photoshop is an adventure that
can take you places you never dreamed. Even if
you've never touched Photoshop before, you'll be
able to open, edit, and save files before the first
lesson finishes. You'll also find out how to
download the images that will be used in the class.
Friday - Lesson 02
tools are a lot of fun to use. In fact, many
students say that the brushes are Photoshop's nicest
surprise. The brushes are also Photoshop's most
basic tools, so you'll want to know how to use them
even if you never really need to paint anything. For
example, you'll use brushes to heal and fix images
later in the course. So students will spend this
lesson practicing with the basic Brush tool.
Although you won't need any art talent to use
Photoshop's brushes, many students discover latent
art ability that completely surprises them!
Wednesday - Lesson 03
You'll learn how
to scroll around your image so you can more easily
see the pixels as you edit. You'll learn how to
erase, and you'll meet one of Photoshop's neatest
tricks: the Erase to History command. This command
helps you combine images or to bring images back to
the way they looked when you first opened them. The
other piece of magic you'll discover is how to
colorize images or create the always-popular sepia
Friday - Lesson 04
In this lesson, you'll
learn the critical skill of making selections.
Selecting simply means isolating a specific part of
an image so you can make changes to just that part.
You'll see how easy it is to isolate rectangular or
circular portions of your image so you can add a
filter or change the colors of that area. You'll
also practice creating a vignette, which is a photo
with an opaque center that falls off to a very soft
edge. It's a great technique to use on a portrait
when you don't like the original background. And if
you don't like the selection you just made, you can
use the fabulous new Photoshop CS3 Refine Edges
command. This lesson will go over that too.
Wednesday - Lesson 05-
Photoshop has some
great "smart" selection tools, but until CS3, all of
the selection tools have had some limitations. You
can see the flower—why can't Photoshop? Photoshop
CS3 has fixed that with the new Quick Selection
tool, and you'll get a chance to try it out in this
lesson as you practice putting two images together.
Friday - Lesson 06
A lot of students are
surprised when they see how much control they can
have over how a Photoshop brush performs. This
lesson will go over several different options.
You'll learn how to make a brush change colors as
you paint, and how to make a brush seem to dance
across an image. You'll even create brush strokes
that look like stitches on a quilt, following the
direction of your cursor. You'll also learn how to
use a brush to create a stamp from any section of an
image, and then use that stamp anywhere else in your
Wednesday - Lesson 07
Gradients are fountains
of color that blend all the hues in between a
starting color and an ending color. One of the
current trends in photography is to colorize areas
of a photo with a gradient. You can spend hundreds
of dollars purchasing gradient-colored stock
photos—or just use what you learn in this lesson to
create them yourself. Even portraits can be much
more exciting when you add gradients to them.
Friday - Lesson 08
If you enjoyed the
Erase to History command, get ready for this
super-charged version—the History Brush tool. This
incredible tool gives you an unlimited do-over on
your photo for as long as you have the image open on
your screen. You can add filters and generally
experiment with any feature that Photoshop
possesses, but still get back to your original image
or to a version of the image in the recent past. In
this lesson, you'll learn to use the History Brush
to make stunning black and white with color images,
to color correct an image, and then to make a
totally wild impressionistic art image from a photo.
Wednesday - Lesson 09
Whether you want to add
type to a scrap-booking layout, make large type for
display, or learn a little bit about Photoshop's
Layer Styles, you'll enjoy this lesson. You'll try
your hand at making type that warps, wiggles, and
wraps around a circle. Then you'll see what you can
do to text on your own.
Friday - Lesson 10
In this lesson,
you'll learn how to "right size" your images,
whether that right size is for printing or for the
Web. You'll also unlock the mysteries of printing so
that your prints have the best chance to profit from
your new Photoshop skills. You'll find out how to
scan an image so it's large enough, but not too
large, and how to crop an image that shows more than
you really want to see.
Wednesday - Lesson 11
You'll learn the
three R's of photo manipulation: Retouching,
restoring, and rearranging. You'll be amazed at what
you can do—and you'll no longer trust the phrase
"pictures don't lie." You'll also discover another
incredible new feature in Photoshop CS3—the Clone
Stamp palette. This new addition lets you copy
imagery from anywhere in an open image and brush it
into your picture while changing size and
