Photoshop: A Crash Course at IGT
In this introductory class students will enjoy a first-look at Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge. Students will use PC computers to explore the basic tools of Photoshop including opening and editing images, inserting text, use of the brush tools, palettes, working with layers and basic masking techniques. The class will also cover color modes, resolution, and file formats for the web, video, laser printers and print media. This class is ideal for beginners with little or no experience working in Photoshop. Students should have basic computer skills (i.e. Windows 7, Microsoft Office, e-mail, internet), but do not need to have experience with photo editing software. All students will work with the same images supplied by the instructor to create their own piece of photo art. Class is presented in partnership with International Gaming Technology and is taught on the campus of IGT.
Instructor: Derick Rougeau is a professional video graphics designer and currently works in Studio1A at IGT.
Ages: 15 and up / All levels
Required Supplies: Files and images will be supplied for the students. Students are encouraged to bring a USB thumb drive so they can take their final PSD file home with them. Students are encouraged to take notes so please bring something for this purpose.
