Photoshop Foundations:  Gradients!

I am a firm believer that is it extremely difficult to learn Photoshop in one big lump sum with one all-encompassing course.  There is just too much information to learn and pack into a single educational endeavor.  The one major problem with trying to make a course like that is that I would only be able to teach you introductions to important tools instead of spending the time I would need on each one.

In an effort to maximize your potential in Photoshop, I have created the Photoshop Foundations Series.  In this series, instead of giving you a brief intro to a tool or technique, I am going to take a deep dive into very specific areas.  For our first Foundations course, I am going to teach you how to use Gradients!

While gradients may seem like a simple concept, they are one of the most complex editing tools in Photoshop.  When you use gradients in creative ways you can make the most effective vignettes, you can make a boring sunset photo look extravagant, and you become the director of your viewer’s eyes.

What you will learn:

  • What gradients are and why we use them.
  • How to use the Graduated Filter in Adobe Camera Raw
  • How to use the Gradient Tool in Photoshop
  • How to make incredible Vignettes, Spot Lights and Sunset Effects with the Gradient Fill
  • How to use the Gradient Map to color grade your images and make successful Black and White reproductions.
  • How to use all the gradient tools in a single workflow to make brilliant photos.

Included in this course:

  • 107 Minutes of formal education and practical application using Gradients in Photoshop and Adobe Camera Raw
  • An Actions Package to use after completing the course
  • 72 of Blake’s Gradients to install and use in your workflow

Programs Required:

  • Photoshop (CC or CS6).  Not included in the purchase of the course.
