An introduction to the Selection Tools and how to use them with Layer Masks for advanced image editing, along with an introduction to why photographers use Photoshop.

Course Description:

Whether you are continuing on from Part 1 of this series or you have worked with Adobe Photoshop for a while and could use a better understanding of masking and selection tools, this workshop is for you. In this session of 3 weekly classes, we will introduce and review masking adjustment layers to make isolated edits to color and tone. We will also cover the selection tools and use these with Layer Masks to create a single image from multiple photo exposures (HDR); the foundation to creating a collaged image.

  • Layer masks
  • Selection tools
  • Isolated edits to color and tone
  • Retouching large image areas
  • Making an HDR image
