Adobe Photoshop CS5 Level 1

In this course you will learn how to use the various elements in the Photoshop CS5 interface so as to efficiently work with the software. You will use the different tools in Photoshop for selecting parts of images and identify the need for having layers in a Photoshop document. You will also organise the different components of the design as layers. With a layered Photoshop document created, you will then apply layer effects and other special effects in order to enhance the appearance of the design. Once the design is finalised, you will save images in both print and web formats.
