Bespoke Photoshop CS3 - 2 Day Introduction Overview

Photoshop Logo and Introduction Course Delegates

Adobe Photoshop CS3 is the standard image editing application used by the majority of design professionals throughout the world. It offers incredible creative freedom both in terms of manipulating existing images, creating new art work, and integrating all design elements.

Photoshop CS3 also supports vector graphics, easy automation, and a wide range of other improved features, including the brilliant new Adobe Bridge, vanishing point effects, one-click red-eye correction and much more. If you’re serious about working in the creative industries, it’s no exaggeration to say that you must know this application.

In this 2 day beginners course in Adobe Photoshop CS3, you will learn the basics of image manipulation and creation with this powerful tool. Learning how to create accurate selections to modify with Photoshop’s tools will form a key part of the training (including Quick Masks), as will understanding layers, using colour and transparency, and adjusting images to improve their quality/suitability for their intended publication. As Photoshop is such a feature-rich application, other features of the software will be considered according to how appropriate they are to your workflow needs.

By the end of this course you will be able to use Photoshop CS3 to create basic artwork and layouts, and to save correctly for your intended medium.

(This course is also available as a 1 day course which covers most of the basics of the 2 day course but allows less time for experimenting and creating completed designs.)


Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites

This course is intended for digital artists and photographers as well as those who work for advertising agencies, design agencies, marketing agencies, production houses, and specialist corporate departments.

You will need basic PC or Mac skills, including a solid understanding of a computer's operating system (Windows or Mac OS). You will also need to know how to launch a program, create and save files, and copy files from CDs and other media.
