Course Description

RISD CE Adobe Photoshop course

Building on the Adobe Photoshop I course, this course focuses on more advanced aspects of this industry-standard image editing software through projects that explore vector-based clipping masks for crisp edged transparency for print, gradient masks for smooth layer transitions utilized in all sophisticated editing techniques, and "Actions" for building automated processes. These multilayered subtractive processes serve to separate the Photoshop professionals from the hobbyists, and give the user pixel-perfect control of their image-editing environment.
