    Photoshop Retro Training

    So during these last few weeks the focus has been on getting the courses delivered online and finally there seems to be headway. People seem to be taking advantage of the small bite sized chunks – they can just ring in or email with a problem and depending on the situation either hook up immediately or make a time later in the day.

    Photoshop or Lightroom Training?

    Posted on 16th February 2020 by Greta Powell

    Photoshop or Lightroom Training?

    The question is exactly what do you want to do with your image editing software. Obviously you want to edit photographs but when making the choice between Photoshop or Lightroom training you need to be a little more specific. Do you want to simply edit images, do you work with large amounts of images, want to create graphics, design social media images and animated GIF’s the list seems almost never-ending.

     

    Which do you choose? The answer to that is it really depends on is what you need to do and the particular project /s at hand. So this is a post listing the key parts of each piece of software and their use in certain projects. 

     

    In this post we take a look at both pieces of software and way up the pros and cons. Incidentally Adobe provide a number of different subscription options over on their website you can choose from.

    New Tools in Photoshop

    Posted on 30th October 2019 by Greta Powell

    New and Not so New Tools in Photoshop

    With new tools coming to Photoshop we thought it would be a good idea to give a heads up as to what they might. We also thought it might be an idea to include some of the not so new as well. Not the newest but certainly one of the most popular features on the Photoshop Courses is the Content Aware Fill tool which has been greatly updated in the latest versions. 

     

    Then there is the New Object Selection Tool coming to Photoshop in the very near future. But this is going to be quite a fluid post so as and when new tools appear we’ll add them to this post but in the meantime take a quick look at these Youtube videos to get an idea of what goes on in the software.

    Photoshop Poster Design Course

    Posted on 20th June 2019 by Greta Powell

    Photoshop Poster Design Course

    Every week or so we do a small write up about one of the tailored Adobe Courses we run. Early this week saw Greta return to Newark to deliver a Photoshop Poster Design course. This was a two day Photoshop Course with a specific aim in mind – creating, designing and publishing posters. The client was Rufford Park Golf & Country Club who had been outsourcing their poster design work for some time. They felt with some training they would be able to bring the posters in-house and save the club some money.

     

    Everyone was fairly new to Photoshop so the first day was spent mostly on covering the essential tools and features they need to know to use Photoshop. Obviously layers played a big part in the day as did the transform tool. The guys were very keen to replicate the swoosh shape at the top of their poster design so we worked a lot with Photoshop’s Transform Tool.

    What is Photoshop?

    Posted on 3rd June 2019 by Greta Powell

    What is Photoshop?

    Photoshop has been around since the 80’s and is often described as the industry standard photo editing app. In essence what it does is create, edit and enhance photography for a multitude of purposes for both the business or home user.

     

    Online Photoshop Training

    As well as an Onsite Photoshop Training you can now learn online via your computer. This is live Online Photoshop training where you have full contact with your trainer, can share screens and ask questions and work with your trainer just as if you were in a traditional training room.

     

    You can do this in bite sized smaller training chunks or over a day or two and its fine for either one to one sessions or small groups.

    What’s it used for?

    The answer to that is how long is a piece of string? It can be used in photo production for editing huge amounts of photos, to lightly edit business images, create animated GIF’s, edit basic videos, design social media icons and create digital artwork similar to paintings. It truly is huge.

     

    What is a raster & what is a vector?

    In short raster refers to a photograph (pixels) whilst vector refers to a drawn piece of artwork. So for example if David Bailey had to pick one he’d opt for Photoshop whereas Vincent Van Gogh would go for Illustrator.

    Lightroom CC Mobile

    Lightroom CC Mobile 

    An interesting question popped up recently – what image editing app do you use on your phone. To be fair there are two that I use, the Lightroom CC Mobile app and Snapseed both of which have many wonderful features.

     

    First things first though –
