About this course

You will use the different tools in Photoshop for selecting parts of images and identify the need for having layers in a Photoshop document.

You will also organise the different components of the design as layers.

With the layered Photoshop document thus created, you will apply layer effects and other special effects in order to enhance the appearance of the design. Once the design is finalised, you will save images in both print and web formats.


Before taking this course, students should be familiar with the basic functions of their computer's operating system such as creating folders, launching programs, and working with windows.
