Photoshop CS6 Crash Course

Categories:
Design

This course takes you from knowing nothing about Photoshop to having an incredibly good handle on the program in as little time as possible.

The three legs of Photoshop are:
* Layers
* Selections
* Color Correction
If you understand how to manipulate those three elements you can accomplish just about anything with Photoshop. This course starts by going over those concepts and then shows how to combine them for powerful results. Rather than showing you every single feature this course focuses on the features people actually use without boring you to tears on the other tools. The instructor Jeremy Shuback has taught over 150 000 people Photoshop and works as a professional designer. He uses Photoshop every day to create everything from billboards to photorealistic matte paintings for feature films. More importantly he understands that you don't want to spend 14 hours straight trying to learn Photoshop.

Simplifying The Workspace

<p style="">When you first open Photoshop, there&#039;s an intimidating amount of windows, icons and tools. For now, let&#039;s simplify it down to just three.</p> <ul style=""> <li style="">The Toolbar <span class="Apple-tab-span" style=""> </span>(<strong style=""> Window &gt; Tools )</strong></li> <li style="">The Main Canvas <span class="Apple-tab-span" style=""> </span><strong style="">( File &gt; New... )</strong></li> <li style="">The Layers Palette<span class="Apple-tab-span" style=""> </span><strong style="">( Window &gt; Layers )</strong></li> </ul> <p style="">We&#039;ll get more complicated later, but for now let&#039;s make things as simple as possible.</p> <p style="">If your Photoshop screen looks different then the one in the video, go to <strong style="">Window &gt; Workspace &gt; Essentials (Default)</strong> and then <strong style="">Window &gt; Workspace &gt; Reset Essentials </strong>and we&#039;ll both be on the same page.</p>

For the transform tool, Shift constrains the proportions, Alt keeps the center point in the same place, and Control allows you to edit individual corners to create effects such as perspective.</p> <p style="">However, no sane person first dipping into Photoshop is going to remember what the three modifier keys do for 40 different tools. It&#039;s much easier to just press one, see what happens, and if it&#039;s the wrong one just undo that action and try another. With practice, you&#039;ll get to know which modifier keys do what in every tool.</p>

Auto Select Check Box
online
lecture
<p style="">While a check box doesn&#039;t sound sexy, this is the most important on/off switch in the entire program. Knowing this opens up a world of possibility, and I&#039;m always surprised how few people know about it.</p> <p style="">In the option bar of the move tool, this auto select layer option lets you automatically select whatever layer your cursor is on top of.</p>

Magic Wand Basics
online
lecture
<p style="">When you create an active region, only the pixels within that active region can be edited. If you press delete, only the pixels within the active region are deleted. You can only paint within that active region. If you use the move tool, it won&#039;t move the full layer, it will only move the active region. If you copy and paste, it will copy and paste the active region. Not the whole layer.<br style="" /><br style="" />If something isn&#039;t working right, the first place to look is layers. Are you on the right layer? The second place to look is seeing if there&#039;s an active region selected.<br style="" /><br style="" />To remove an active region go to <strong style="">Select &gt; Deselect</strong>.<br style="" /><br style="" />There are three main tools that let you create active regions.<br style="" /><br style="" /><strong style="">The Rectangular Marquee</strong> let&#039;s you create active regions in the shape of squares.<br style="" /><strong style="">The Lasso Tool</strong> works like a pair of scissors, letting you cut out an active region.<br style="" /><br style="" /><strong style="">The Magic Wand</strong> creates an active region for everything that&#039;s the same color. Its options include Contiguous (is it touching) and Sample all Layers.</p>
On Demand
Lasso Tool Basics
online
lecture
<p style="">The Lasso Tool allows you to cut part of an image out.<br style="" /><br style="" />To phrase that more technically, with the lasso tool you can create an active region in whatever shape you like.<br style="" /><br style="" />Image Sandwich:<br style="" />Setting one layer between the background layer, and a duplicate of part of the background layer to make it appear as that in between layer is behind an object in the image.</p>

Problem Solving

Polygonal Lasso Tool
online
lecture
<p style="">It&#039;s important to know which tool is right for which job.&nbsp;When the magic wand doesn&#039;t work, the polygonal lasso tool is sometimes a good alternative.</p> <p style="">This is not one of those times.</p> <p style=""><br style="" /><br style="" /></p>
On Demand
Magnetic Lasso Tool
online
lecture
<p style="">The Magnetic Lasso Tool will automatically stick to any clear edge. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn&#039;t. <br style="" /><br style="" />General techniques with the Lasso Tool:</p> <ul style=""> <li style="">Hit <strong style="">Delete</strong> to undo the most recent points set by the lasso tool</li> <li style="">You can hold down <strong style="">spacebar</strong> to pan the canvas while using the lasso tool</li> <li style="">Start creating the active region in the middle of an object, not on the edge</li> <li style="">Never try to do a large area in one fell swoop</li> <li style="">Grow the active region by starting with one small section, and holding down <strong style="">shift</strong> to keep adding to it</li> </ul> <p style="">The term &#039;active region&#039; and &#039;selection&#039; are interchangeable.</p>
On Demand
Quick Selection Tool

On Demand
Using The Selection
online
lecture
<p style="">There are many reasons to create a selection. One might be to change the background. Another might be to move part of one image into another. Here&#039;s me doing both of those.<br style="" /><br style="" />To invert a selection, right click when using a selection tool and pick &#039;<strong style="">Invert Selection</strong>&#039;.</p>
On Demand
Color Range
online
lecture
<p style="">When Quick Select, the Magic Wand, and the Lasso Tool don&#039;t work, the next place to turn is <strong style="">Select &gt; Color Range</strong>.<br style="" /><br style="" />When the dialogue box appears, the cursor turns to an eye dropper when you&#039;re over the image. Click on the color you want to select and shift select if you want to select a couple. Keep it limited to no more than three colors.<br style="" /><br style="" />In the dialogue box, everything that&#039;s white is part of the active region. Everything that&#039;s black is not.<br style="" /><br style="" />You can adjust the Fuzziness (same as Tolerance when using the Magic Wand) to shift how much the white encompasses.</p>

Image Sandwich
online
lecture
<p style="">When making a difficult selection, often you&#039;ll need multiple copies of the same layer to make it work. On the first duplicate of the original layer you might have a rough color range applied. On another you might have a rough lasso tool cut out. On a third you might have a specific section. By combining them together, incredibly complex selections can emerge.</p>

3 Dimensions Of Color
online
lecture
<p style="">The three dimensions of color are value, chroma, and hue.</p> <p style="">If the darks aren&#039;t completely black and/or the lights aren&#039;t completely white, there&#039;s a problem with value.</p> <p style="">If the colors aren&#039;t vibrant or saturated enough, there&#039;s a problem with chroma.</p> <p style="">If what&#039;s supposed to be red looks orange or there&#039;s some other variety of color casting, there&#039;s a problem with the hue.&nbsp;</p> <p style="">In short, when fixing an image, the goal is to make the darkest point black, the lightest point white, and the mid point a nice neutral grey with no color casting taking place.</p> <div style=""></div>

Curves Advanced
online
lecture
<p style="">A deeper look into color theory, and showing <strong style="">Curves</strong> used on multiple images.</p> <p style="">For a reminder of the complimentary hues, create a <strong style="">Color Balance</strong> Color Adjustment Layer. They are:</p> <ul style=""> <li style="">Red to Cyan</li> <li style="">Green to Magenta</li> <li style="">Blue to Yellow</li> </ul> <p style="">Every color in the Curves drop down at the top allows you to not only increase how prominent the color listed is by moving the midpoint on that color&#039;s curve, but also how prominent the complimentary color&#039;s prominence is. For instance, if after setting the black point, white point, and midpoint you want to make an image more yellow, you:</p> <ol style=""> <li style="">Go to the drop down in the Curves dialogue box that reads <strong style="">RGB.</strong></li> <li style="">Drop down to <strong style="">Blue.</strong></li> <li style="">Shift the midpoint of that blue down a small amount by clicking on a point in the middle of that diagonal line and lowering it.&nbsp;</li> <li style="">Because yellow is the complimentary color of blue, yellow is added as blue is taken away.</li> </ol>

Painting In Color
online
lecture
<p style="">Whenever you create a <strong style="">Color Adjustment Layer</strong>, the layer also has a blank white square.

Wherever that part of the layer is white, it gets adjusted. Wherever it&#039;s black is not.<br style="" /><br style="" />The various options for a mask, such as <strong style="">Invert</strong>, can be found in the <strong style="">Properties</strong> panel.<br style="" />Use <strong style="">X</strong> to switch the foreground and background colors.</p>

What's Next?
online
lecture
<p style="">The goal of this class was to get you up and running in Photoshop as quickly and proficiently as possible. The tools touched on here are the ones most people actually use. This class purposefully left out all of the lesser used tools to not bog you down with needless information.</p> <p style="">With that said, there are a couple of concepts that are absolutely worth learning after you master what was covered here. The major one is Masks. Beyond that: Channels, advanced brushes, vectors, and advanced photo retouching all come to mind.</p> <p style="">It largely depends on what you need to do with the program. For most, what was covered here will be enough. For some, this will hopefully have been the sure footed grounding you needed to keep moving forward.</p>

    Jeremy is very thorough in his explanations and understands how to simplify complex tools and elements of Photoshop so that beginners can understand how to use the program.

    The instructor is going at a great pace and though its just reviewing the essentials I'm grasping the concepts. Exciting to apply these tools

    Absolutely love it! The explanations are short, to the point and with good examples. Even though Jeremy speaks fast, he's not using ton of jargon and makes you feel overwhelmed, lost and well, dumb. Like the style, the pace, the examples and most of all working through the problems from a novice standpoint, i.e. making mistakes and how to go about solving them. He's like a good friend who sits patiently next to you teaching you how to use the most commonly used tools and best practices in PS. Best course I have come across. Thanks Jeremy and hope you do Crash Courses in the other Adobe programs.

    Very well done! Real world examples of the things you really want to accomplish with Photoshop. This course runs circles around the typical "this is what this tool does" type courses you see all over the internet. If you're looking for a course to teach you practical steps to getting real work done in Photoshop, take this course! You'll be glad you did. Excellent job!
