Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) April 11, 2010
Infinite Skills, a leading producer of eLearning and video guided resources, has just launched a new course highlighting the capabilities of Photoshop Elements 8 for Mac. Covering many tasks and thoroughly exploring the software's unique interface, this training video is an excellent primer for new users as well as those who wish to master Photoshop Elements at their own pace.
In this hands-on teaching series, photography and Adobe professional Neil Oliver shows how to achieve a wide range of results, from correcting images and adding effects to overlaying custom text and merging multiple photos together. The course also focuses on features that are specific to the Mac version of the program. Because OS X comes with several built-in media options by default, the Adobe software complements the operating system’s tools to provide a complete production suite for the home and small business user. In addition to including Adobe Bridge CS4 for viewing and managing a wide range of multimedia file types, Photoshop Elements 8 allows users to quickly create calendars, photo albums, greeting cards and other forms of creative presentation.
In each of these 98 video lessons, users get onscreen guidance through the Elements interface. Because the training uses the Mac edition of the software, all of the examples look exactly as they do on a viewer’s own computer. This one-to-one correspondence facilitates faster learning by showing exactly how software techniques are accomplished. While beginners will appreciate the tutorial’s focus on fundamentals, those with more experience will find shortcuts and workarounds for previously time-consuming tasks. Since the software utilises a brush-based interface, many of the same commands and techniques can be applied across the program; these tutorials focus on skills users will rely upon continually, giving them a core understanding of fundamentals that will assist them throughout their usage of Photoshop Elements and even other programs that Adobe makes.
At almost six hours in length, the training course addresses so many different subjects that nearly everyone will find something to learn. A quick sampling of topics covered includes Importing Photos From A Camera, Rating and Labelling Photos, Working with Panels, Using the Eyedropper, Lasso Tools, Brushing, Color Gradients, Adjusting Skin Tone, Correcting Sharpness, and more.
This Mac - Photoshop Elements 8 Training Video on DVD / CD is now available to order or accessible through an online video option. Downloadable work files accompany the lessons to allow users to follow along, and the author directs users to additional resources that will help them learn more.
