Photoshop 301: Black Belt

On this class you will learn about the most advanced techniques in Adobe Photoshop. You will learn how to make animations, use 3D objects to incorporate them in your 2D artwork, work with Smart objects, HDR and Camera RAW images, create professional selections, work with Layer and Clipping masks, design and prepare websites for developers, create digital art and so much more.

This course also helps you prepare for the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) exam, which is the highest level of recognition for Adobe applications. Get recognised for the new skills you’ve just gained: Get Certified!

Exam not included in the price of the class, but is available at an additional fee of £150 plus VAT.

This class is for advanced users of Photoshop with strong understanding of all the general concepts of using the application. The course’s content is put together especially for those users who plan to take the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) exam. On this course we learn the most advanced techniques and lots of best practices but at the same time we focus on the requirements of the ACE exam. This course is really intense, so for those with doubts in their knowledge we recommend the Photoshop Rookie and Hot Shot courses first or to consult our sales team and the instructors.
