March 12, 2013 Photoshop Tips, Tricks and Techniques: How to enhance your speed and creativity

    In this full day seminar, Dave Cross will show practical Photoshop techniques that you can use every day to be more efficient, and to give your creativity a boost. Most of all you’ll see how to spend less time in Photoshop and more time shooting! Whether you’re new to Photoshop or a seasoned veteran, you’ll walk away with a ton of ideas: this day is all about productivity and creativity.



     You won’t learn every aspect of Photoshop – because you don’t need to! Dave will “demystify” this potentially overwhelming program by showing you the key tools and functions you need to know…and how to get things done more quickly. As just one example, you’ll see how a Lightroom to Photoshop to Camera Raw “smart” workflow can give you a world of creative possibilities.




     Dave will show lots of real-world examples and will leave plenty of time to address your questions.


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 make and use masks – quickly and creatively

• How to use Smart Objects and Smart Filters to save you time

• Why Camera Raw Smart Objects rock

• Adding Finishing Touches to your photos – quickly and easily

…and much more


Dave will show lots of real-world examples and will leave plenty of time to address your questions.
