About This Class

Create a Banksy style portrait using Adobe Photoshop's masking and adjustment layers.

This is a fun way of getting to grips with Photoshop's adjustment layers and discovering the power of non-destructive editing by making a smart use of layers.

In this short and easy to follow class you will learn some key Photoshop skills and I can't wait to see what you can do with this technique. So whether you want to design an new profile picture, poster or even a t-shirt get yourself enrolled and just let me know if you have any questions.

This little animated GIF will give you a flavour of what will be covered.
