About This Class


Eye-catching visuals with a layered colour effect are much easier to produce than you might think! They allow you to take any image and create something totally different, bright and dynamic out of it.

I am Evgeniya Righini-Brand and in this class I want to share with you a technique of creating striking visuals from any images by manipulating colour channels in Adobe Photoshop. This approach will allow you to take your work—whether it is a poster or print design, illustration or photography—to a new and exciting level. 

This class covers:

  • the basics behind RGB and CMYK colour models;
  • how the channels work and how to interpret them in Adobe Photoshop;
  • how to use RGB and CMYK colour channels in Adobe Photoshop to produce eye-catching colourful designs;
  • how to use Colour Halftone & Halftone Pattern filters with channels to add a nice retro, pop art or a techno feel to any work.

This class is suitable for pretty much any skill level and covers everything you’ll need to complete this class project. You can complete this class in any version of Photoshop.

I cannot wait to see what you can create, join me in this class and let’s make something awesome!
