Photoshop Mastery: Ultimate Mastery
Throughout this series, we’ve covered many huge topics (retouching, adjustments, collage, etc.). In this final installment, we fill in the gaps between big thoughts with the more subtle concepts that are essential to taking full control of Photoshop. This is the stuff you rarely see taught, but true experts use on a daily basis. I’ll start by revealing a bunch of hidden and hard to find features that you probably don’t know exist because you have to type odd keyboard shortcuts or go through other loopholes to find them. I’ll then show you how far you can push your adjustments before they start to lower the quality of the image. We’ll do that by popping the hood in Photoshop to reveal how those adjustments may be harming the underlying integrity of your image.
I’ll then show you how to manipulate Photoshop’s features to get them to do things they were not designed to do. This way, you can extend Photoshop further than even the programmers envisioned. I’ll also talk about many of the little features that never get covered in classes but are overly useful. Finally, we’ll dive into a few geeky features that are not for the faint of heart like variables, apply image and calculations.
Whether you’re still fairly new to Photoshop or you’re an advanced user, there is sure to be techniques in this class you will want to add to your mental toolbox.
