We have finally completed the whole course of Graphic designing with Photoshop. I hope this was a very interesting course for you guys. We have learned a lot of things in this course of Photoshop.
Let's take a brief summary of all the things that we have learned, and also talk about a few of the most difficult and most important topics of this course. First we got an introduction of photoshop, about its history and how it is used. Then we understood the uses of different tools that are available in the course.
First tool that we saw was the move tool, it was used to move things from one place to another, in the artboard. The artboard was the location on which your images were displayed. For the selection of any object or part of an image, the Marquee tool was used. Then we saw a lasso tool. It was used for free form selection of different objects in the photoshop. We saw other tools for the quick selection that were quick select tools, and the magic wand tool.
There were other tools that we saw in photoshop like crop and perspective crop, that were used for cropping the image. Then eyedropper and colour sampler tools were used for picking colours from an image. Blur, sharpen and smudge tools, as the name suggests were used to blur, sharpen and smudge the parts or whole of the image. Then a Dodge and burn tool was used to darken or lighten the parts of the image.
We saw the layout of different menus in photoshop like, edit menu, image menu and layer menu, select menu, filter menu window menu and lastly, view menu. We also learned very different kinds of shortcuts that will be helpful for us. If you do not remember all the shortcuts do not worry but try to learn most of them.
In the very last module of photoshop we saw the portfolio creation in photoshop, which included many things. From designing the logos of very different kinds like the monogram, pictorial to 3D logos. Then we used those to add them into the visiting card that we designed to give it a very professional and clean look. We also saw the design of flyers and posters in photoshop. Apart from that we saw some adjustments of the images like we did, colour correction of many different kinds of images in different ways through curves and even from hue and saturation. We learned how to give a wet glass effect to an image. Then we understood how to whiten teeth quickly and how to remove shadows from the images. Then we learned how to mockups on a laptop and mobile screen, then in the preceding lectures we saw the design of posters and badges and we used those on the products.
We have also learned how to make an infographic design in photoshop that can be used for many different purposes like for promotion and email marketing. We also saw the web banner design for the different different websites and how they can be integrated into your websites or social media sites. Then finally we learned how to design a letterhead in photoshop that could be used in the offices. And the invitation card design that you could use for the engagements and wedding invitation.
I gave you a lot of assignments in those different topics for your practice so that you would practice it yourself and can improve your skills in photoshop and get better opportunities in your future prospects.
Photoshop isn't difficult once you understand the basics; once you understand the basics, you'll find it quite simple to use. Photoshop is a versatile piece of software with numerous applications (photo editing, photo manipulations, web design, 3D, drawing, etc.).
The majority of professional Photoshop tutorials last between 15 and 23 hours. Which will, in most circumstances, give you the fundamentals.
Using Photoshop, I created print design projects such as local event posters, brochures, and flyers.
Photoshop was used to create social media photos and infographics that resulted in a 243 percent increase in readership.
