Photoshop Lesson #1

ART209 Lesson One Example ImageTonight’s introduction to Adobe Photoshop CS6 should help you better understand the application’s user interface, including the names and functions of the tools, panels, and menus that make it such a powerful software tool. In addition, we will begin our first real hands-on experimentation with Photoshop, and work to design a fictional publication cover by combining three separate image files into a single, cohesive composition; adjusting colors, contrast, and lighting effects; and incorporating and styling a small amount of text.

We’ll also have a little more time on Tuesday to wrap this up, but here’s a .PDF download of the steps we’ll follow to design the final composition in case you want to work on this project further outside of class:
