  • 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 defined as the industry standard image editing software. And what it does is create, edit and enhance imagery in raster and vector based graphic formats. 

     

    What is a raster & what is a vector?

    In short raster refers to a photograph 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 

    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 –

    PANTONE 16 1546 Living Coral

    There’s always passion for colours here, it’s great to see delegates faces when they see the swatches for the first time in the software and realise the range of colours they have to work with. However unlike last year when we wrote the Vibrant Ultra Violet(18-3838) post virtually on its date release we’re running late with these years appointed pantone. Which is, a luscious orange known as Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral and if you like bright, we do, then you will love this.

    Photoshop Creation

    I love running graphic design training courses especially when you see what people create in the space of one day. I love this image that was converted to Black and White on a recent Photoshop Course by one of the delegates. Who, incidentally had never used the software before.

    Adobe Lightroom in Education

    Adobe Lightroom Training – for schools

    It was recently a great pleasure to deliver an Adobe Lightroom Course combined with an Adobe Photoshop course to a school in Lincolnshire. This was for the Photography and Media departments who were particularly interested in looking into Lightroom CC to add features to their school curriculum later this year. The approach to this Adobe Lightroom Training was quite simple – a basic overview of its tools and tabs and how it could be adapted for straightforward use for their students.

     

    There were three people on the Adobe Lightroom Training in Lincolnshire and with differing skill-sets and areas of interest it was decided to split the day up into two with the Adobe Photoshop Training in the morning and Lightroom Course in the afternoon.
