Digital Art Tools for Photoshop Certification
Ever wonder why a picture in a magazine looks flawless or how creative an advertising banner looks? While being a professional designer or photographer may have a lot to do with it, the potential to create amazing images is possible for anyone. The key is to learn how to use the right post-production software, such as Adobe Photoshop. The ability to create multi-layers with unique effects and designs allows the designer to add depth and dimension. It is important to understand what Photoshop is used for as it has multiple functions and can be a very useful tool in not just editing photos, but also creating pamphlets, banners, business cards and flyers. This course will teach you about the benefits of such a program and also provides instructions on how to use it for both professional and personal needs.

Throughout the course, you will see 21 different videos. Each video will take you on a step-by-step journey through the basic features of Photoshop. While there are several obvious features, such as the ‘Layers’ dialogue box, there are additional ways to use each tool to maximise the post effects of a photo.

How to create a new file and adjust a canvas size that is suitable to project needs
