Photoshop CS3: Mastering Selections

Photoshop CS3: Mastering Selections


Selecting and isolating objects in photos is one of those underlying Photoshop skills that you use every single day. This workshop covers Photoshop’s numerous selection tools — including plenty of tips for creating accurate selections, maintaining fine edge details, and working with difficult images. Techniques are demonstrated using examples from real-world retouching projects.

This 90-minute workshop covers the real-world use of Photoshop's many selection tools. Including:

  • Marquee tools.
  • Lasso tools.
  • Magic Wand.
  • Quick Mask.
  • The Pen Tool.
  • Using Color Ranges to isolate tricky selections.
  • Feathering and softening edges of selections.
  • CS3's New Quick Select and tools.
  • Plus many tips and tricks for saving and reusing selections later.

90-minute Workshops. Learn in the morning and get back to work.

PSCS3-Selections.pngAt CreativeTechs, we're taking a new approach to learning. We've divided days of training materials into dozens of smaller, bite-sized modules. The results are shorter, more focused classes that allow busy creative professionals get what they need, without having to set aside an entire day, or two, (or three) for longer classes.

Here's the pitch: Join us Wednesday or Thursday mornings at 9:30am, pick up a couple new skills, and get back to work before lunch. You can put what you learned into use the same day.

Clear, exhaustive explanations in a comfy setting. Plus a complete handout to take home. In 90 minutes you'll pick up dozens of tips and techniques that you can put to work right away.

These workshops are demonstrated using Adobe Photoshop CS3 on Mac OS X, however the learning applies to PC users as well as older versions of Photoshop.

Photoshop Thursdays: Non-Destructive Retouching.

Every Thursday morning at CreativeTechs, Photoshop guru Jason Hoppe leads an ongoing series of classes covering non-destructive retouching techniques. Learn the secret to improve your images without overwriting the original image data. Done properly, you protect your full image quality as you make edits. Even better, you retain flexibility when clients come back with late change requests.

This workshop on Photoshop Selections is one of cornerstones for many advanced retouching techniques.

Also Available: Personalized & Group Training.

In addition to the morning 90-minute workshops, all topics are available for personalized group training sessions, or individual one-on-one training. Plus, because of how we've developed smaller, bite-sized topics, we can easily combine a variety of topics to help fit your team's particular needs.
