Course Overview

This is a practical, project based series that will give viewers a new appreciation of some of Photoshop's most creative tools. Viewers will gain a new appreciation for Smart Object workflow, Photoshop 3D, and 32-bit color space. The project-based chapters begin with valuable tips for artistic compositing including using channels for difficult masks and sophisticated layer management with Smart Objects.

In addition, viewers will explore 3D Modeling—using only tools found in Photoshop— as well as a practical workflow for merging 3D layers with models from outside sources. The training also introduces viewers to techniques for texturing and lighting models using the 3D Panel, choosing appropriate scene settings & render presets and creating photorealistic detail with bump maps.

The chapters close with a look at 32-bit color space as an artistic tool, and managing bit-depth for export using Smart Objects.
