Adobe Photoshop - Advanced


Discover the powerful imaging and editing features of Adobe Photoshop. In this more advanced Photoshop class, students will learn about blending modes, smart objects, layer comps and how to work with multiple layers by creating groups. A more extensive chapter on working with color will be covered. Learn about masks in Photoshop and find out how to handle vector layers, shapes and paths. We'll touch base on fun things like creative image effects such as warping, liquify and smart filters.

Prior Photoshop experience is required. It is recommended that students first take Adobe Photoshop: Basic before signing up for this class, as classes are related.

Take this course individually or as part of the Web or Digital Marketing Certificate programs.
