Day 12 - Review portraits, techniques

Begins On: May 9th 2019
Time: 3:15 PM
Location: Pioneer 200c

Photoshop has many different tools that can help you improve your portraits.  So far we have done adjustments to images that have affected the entire image, or using adjustment layers that will allow some general control over localized adjustments.  There are, however, actual "tools" such as the sharpen and blur tools that will allow you to apply an effect to a very specific section of your image and "paint" that effect wherever you want it.

We will review these tools and more:

  • Blur Tool
  • Sharpen Tool
  • Dodge Tool
  • Burn tool
  • Sponge Tool
  • Clone Stamp Tool
  • Healing Brush
  • Red Eye tool
  • and more.

  • Marquee Selection tool
  • Lasso Tool
  • Magic Wand, and Quick Selection tool
  • Selection Brush
