Ventura, California (PRWEB) October 2, 2007
lynda.com, the leader in self-paced digital media and design training, today introduced Photoshop CS3 for the Web Essential Training.
Covering everything from setting up the interface to optimizing photos to using tools like the Web Photo Gallery, Photoshop CS3 for the Web Essential Training is a beginner course for anyone using Photoshop CS3 to create or edit images for the web. Instructor Jan Kabili explains the difference between web and print graphics, demonstrates how to create color swatches, discusses layers and slices, teaches how to create integral web page elements, and much more. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.
"Most people think of Photoshop as a photography or imaging tool, but it's actually the most commonly used software for web graphics on the planet. Using Photoshop for web graphics requires a very different workflow, and Jan walks newbies and experienced web designers alike through the process in a thorough and practical manner," says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
Anyone with an internet connection can access Photoshop CS3 for the Web Essential Training by subscribing to lynda.com's Online Training Library®. A separate CD-ROM version of Photoshop CS3 for the Web Essential Training is planned later this month.
Subscriptions to the lynda.com Online Training Library® start at $25 a month, and provide access to over 22,000 movie tutorials covering more than 320 technology career tools, software applications, and techniques. Subscribers can access any of the computer-based training courses at their convenience. Multi-user subscriptions are also available for companies and institutions seeking to provide education and training to groups.
