About This Class

All you need is beginner to intermediate experience in Adobe Photoshop to take this class.

We will explore how to mix font/type with designs and graphic elements to create dynamic headlines and graphics.

We will go through three distinct projects, working with a combination of text and graphics (photos, design elements). We will learn how to utilize the layering system to create objects that seem to be a part of the text itself by using perspective. We will also explore how to use headlines behind photos yet have them be effective and powerful.

This was great! I picked up a lot of great ideas and tips. It was a little fast for me but that's not unusual for a photoshop class with my skills. I suppose if I keep pushing my boundaries here it will all come together for me someday.
