Photoshop Productivity and Creativity

In this full-day seminar Dave Cross will show practical Photoshop techniques that can be used every day to be more efficient, more accurate, and to give your creativity a boost. Most of all you’ll see how to spend less time in Photoshop and more time shooting! We’ll also talk about how to use Photoshop to differentiate you from other photographers. Dave will lead students through several real-world examples and students will have plenty of time for discussion and questions.

Target Audience: Photographers with experience using Photoshop. Students should have basic knowledge of key functions such as layers, masks and adjusting images.

Topics will include
• Photoshop “best practices”
• Customizing Photoshop to look and operate the way you want
• Creating and using Workspaces
• Layer Comps, Adjustment Layer Presets, and Tool Presets
• Using the built-in automated features in Bridge and Photoshop
• Speeding up your work with Actions
• Taking advantage of the not-so-obvious speed enhancers
• Using non-destructive methods to create reuseable effects
• How to use Smart Objects and Smart Filters to save you time
• Using Camera Raw and Lightroom Smart Objects in Photoshop
• Creating reusable templates
• Adding Finishing Touches to your photos – quickly and easily
• Creative compositing to add to your sales
…and more
