Photoshop Foundations:  The Basics

We are going back to the basics in this course!  Whether you are a seasoned veteran in Photoshop or a beginner, the basics are important.  Having a strong foundation of the inner workings of Photoshop will not only speed up your workflow, it will keep you from forming bad habits in the editing process.

Let’s face it, most people just want to dive right into Photoshop and learn magic tricks.  But I can assure you, those magic tricks will only take you so far if the habits you are forming in the process are bad.  In this course, we are going to go back to the basics and build a strong foundation from the ground up.  You will be shocked by how much you don’t know about the most important aspects of Photoshop.

You will learn:

  • How to navigate Photoshops Menus, Toolbars, and Preferences
  • How to build your own custom workspace for efficiency and speed.
  • The difference between Image Size and Canvas Size
  • The three different layer types
  • The attributes of layers
  • How to organize your layers in big composites
  • How and why to merge layers
  • All about the various file types and when to use them.

Included in this course:

  • 131 Minutes of formal education and practical application for understanding the inner workings of Photoshop to become more proficient.
  • All follow along images and course resource material.

    A great refresher, even for someone that’s been using PS for twenty years now.

    Having floundered about within PS for more than a year; I purchased Blake’s Zone System Express Education Bundle. I have completed ‘The Basics’ portion and already I am feeling so much more comfortable within PS and my images are starting to look much improved.

    As Blake says, “everyone needs this.” I learned quite a bit from this course and I have been using Photoshop for seven years. As always, Blake’s instruction and presentation of the material are superb. This course, along with the Zone System Express, is saving me a lot of time. As a result, my photo processing has improved 100% in a very short time. Again, thank you Blake!

    I’m a long time PS user so I haven’t viewed this part yet but I plan to as you can always learn something useful from almost everyone … no one knows it all!

    I have tried many times in the last 10 years to get my head around PS, and I have worked thru a heap of courses, but Blake not only makes it look easy, he teaches the concepts behind the tools and why some are needed and others just get in the way. Thanks Blake, keep powering on, there are many out here who are blessed by skills as an educator and as a motivator.

    The basics were uncovered. I have only been using photoshop for a little over a year. This was all new material to me. Thanks so much for including it.

    I haven’t looked at this yet. I jumped right into the zone express and am having so much fun with it that I haven’t looked beyond it. I know from experience with Blake’s work that this will be helpful.

    I’ve been using PS for awhile, but decided to forget what I thought I knew and begin at the beginning. Great information for everyone on how to properly setup the interface and prepare for an efficient workflow. Highly recommended.

    All Blake’s Products do what he says and more. Video training as good as it gets. Could not be happier. My only question is what do you recommend as Picture Style setting , in camera, to get the wanted contrast to process ?
