    Adobe Lightroom Photo Editing

    Just using the built-in presets and basic tools for Adobe Lightroom Photo Editing gives pretty amazing effects with a few clicks of the mouse. However if you want to up your game there are plenty of advanced techniques and features you can use such as Lightroom’s Adjustment Brush panel.

    The Adjustment Brush is one of the most powerful tools in Lightroom and accessed via the Develop tab. Using Adjustment Brushes lets you isolate and edit areas of the image and apply effects such as colour, retouching and toning to those individual sections

    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.

    Microsoft Teams & Creative Cloud Assets

    Microsoft Teams & Creative Cloud Assets

    Microsoft Teams & Creative Cloud Assets are one of the more powerful ways in which Greta Powell Training is delivering live instructor online training. It has to be said Microsoft Teams has been a god send. We’re now starting to see some of the main questions delegates ask prior to booking online training with the main ones being how do I use my software in conjunction with Microsoft Teams.

     

    As online training is new to many we thought it might be an idea to write a series of blog posts on Microsoft Teams and the online training process covering some of the questions. We will also be recording a full Microsoft Teams tutorial which will be online in the next few days. 

     

    Teams is not just about chat and screen sharing it also provides a myriad of other opportunities such as……………………………………

    Covid 19 – Information

    Many people think that because they’re on Furlough they’re not allowed to go on training courses, online or otherwise. You can go on training – pop along to the Gov website to see what you can and can’t do.

    Premier Pro Lumetri Panels

    Premier Pro Lumetri Panels

    Over and over again colour is mentioned on Premier Pro Courses. On these Greta Powell Training Courses we use the Premier Pro Lumetri Panels for retouching and changing colour schemes within the video. Before even venturing into the colour panels we always clear up the difference between colour grading and colour correction. They are not one and the same thing. Colour grading means you add creative colour to your project whereas colour correction means giving balance, exposure and ‘true’ representation of colour.

    New Tools in Photoshop

    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.
