    Photoshop Select Subject

    Photoshop CC 2018 Select Subject

    At long last here is the new Select Subject Tool in Photoshop CC 2018 which, as its name suggests lets you select the main subject of the photo usually an animal or person but with a single click after which you go into Select and Mask to refine the subject selection. It’s all thanks to Adobes new ‘AI’ technology known as Adobe Sensei which is behind the Adobe Stock search engine. Enough of the technical already and lets take a look at how it works.

    Photoshop 2018 is full of wonderful new features but on this post I thought I’d show one of the lesser known ones. Its the new Share feature, which gives you the ability to share or email photos to various services directly from within Photoshop including Facebook and Lightroom.

    Photoshop Room Set Up

    Posted on by Greta Powell

    Photoshop Room Setup

     

    It’s been Photoshop, Photoshop and Photoshop training this week with one of the courses being run down in the South West. The countryside views were absolutely stunning on the drive down.

     

    This was the second of two training days where the course content had been specifically tailored for the companies design team and photographer. From the initial email contact through to the final training delivery day all aspects of the course were co-ordinated by the design team, HR and myself.

     

    I thought it might be quite useful to show a few of the room setups from some Adobe training sessions run over recent months starting with this one…………………………

    This Photoshop Training is held onsite across the UK, Herefordshire, Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Leominster, Ledbury, Bromyard, Kington. and all surrounding counties and areas including Wales. Being West Midlands based means that I travel to most areas in the UK including Wales and Scotland. These Photoshop Courses are designed and developed for individuals or company groups with no experience of the software or those looking for refresher training to update their current skills. The courses  are run for 121 sessions or as company courses for teams looking for a more tailored Photoshop training course.

     

    Photoshop Training is delivered at all levels from Introduction to Advanced and at no additional charge tailored course content can be designed around you and your business.

During our time together you will learn how to work with a variety of different images destined for both print, web and social media output.

     

    Photoshop Training in brief

    This Photoshop Course content takes between one and two days depending on the amount of people sitting on the training – for one person a day usually suffices but for small groups of between 4 and 6 people two days is more realistic.

    Photoshop & HDR Training Courses

     

     

    Photoshop Courses including HDR & the Filter Gallery are run onsite across the UK, the Midlands onsite at your offices or home.  So what is HDR? HDR stands for high dynamic range and is used to bring out the full tonal range of the image. You normally use a number of photo’s with different settings to create an HDR effect although the most common amount is 3, one of which is under exposed whilst another is set to normal exposure with the third over exposed

    Photoshop Training Course in Oxford

    Many of the Photoshop courses I run are customised and tailored to the individual clients requirements.  Yesterday I ran a Photoshop course for the graphics /photography department of a school in Oxfordshire which had a number of people on it.

    Photoshop Photography Course

    Posted on 28th June 2017 by Greta Powell

    Photoshop Photography Training Course

     

    This is one of the most flexible of the Photoshop Training Courses because generally each delegate has a clear idea of exactly what they want to achieve from their course.  

     

    For some it could colour enhancement whereas for others its HDR or learning to use the Photoshop photography filters……..it really does depend on you.  This is a recent example of an enhanced image in Photoshop using very basic tools including levels, curves and contrast.

     

    I run Photoshop Courses across the UK, onsite at your premises for one to one sessions or closed company groups………….I also run Lightroom Courses or a combination of Photoshop and Lightroom Training.
