Welcome and Class Topics
Hi Everyone! Welcome to the class! I would like for you to all reply to this message and introduce yourselves so we can all get to know each other a little. Also, tell me what version of Photoshop you are using, whether you are using a MAC or a PC, and what operating system you are running. That way, I can answer your questions more specifically without having to ask for that information first. :) Thanks!
I hope you enjoy the class!
Here is some class information:
The lessons will be posted under the main thread. All of the lessons will be posted on the first day of class for you to work at your own pace. There are 12 lessons total. That works out to be three lessons per week for the next four weeks. I encourage you to download all of the lessons as soon as they are posted.
You can use the "Manage Attachments" button located towards the bottom of your reply page to attach screen shots when you have questions about the lessons. Each lesson includes a tutorial and a homework page. These can be read in the free adobe acrobat. In the newest free version, you can even make notes right on the tutorial and save them with the tutorial using the comments tool. You cannot open the tutorials in Photoshop.
Also, if you are using a MAC and you find a place where I didn't include a MAC shortcut, here are the conversions...
PC Control button = MAC Command button
PC ALT button = MAC Option button
PC right click = MAC Control Click
