|This class picks up where we left
off with Photoshop 101. We spend a
good deal of time editing an old photograph of a house. We'll
crop it, adjusting color and contrast, and make it look like new.
We'll also teach you more with selections, and show you some of
the useful tools, like the dodge tool, sponge, and more.
First, I'm going to show you how to load up a picture
and crop off the parts you don't want. Here's the before image:
And here's the after. As you can see, we
got rid of all the junk around the house, and straightened it out.
Next, we'll learn how to adjust contrast
and color levels.
Now we're left with a more natural looking sky and
Next we'll use the Dodge Tool to bring out
some of the features in this picture. Notice how you can make out more
of the detail in the bushes.
You'll learn more selection tricks, such as
using the eliptical marquee tool, resizing while selecting, clearing an
area, transform, and scaling and copying an object.
You'll learn about the Nudge technique, and
learn much more about the Magnetic Lasso tool, transformations,
perspective, and the Magic Wand.
