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
Friday - Lesson 02
Photoshop's painting 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 tones.
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
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 image.
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
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
Friday - Lesson 12
