About This Class

Photoshop CC Masterclass is a comprehensive training series made up of 7 individual courses.


In this part we will be learning about the Selections and Masks. We will be covering features and techniques like:

  • Basic Selections Tools
  • Quick Mask
  • Magic Wand
  • Quick Selection Tool
  • Focus Area
  • Color Range
  • Channels
  • Select & Mask
  • Pixel Mask
  • Vector Mask
  • Selecting hair and other complex details
  • and so much more.

We will be relying heavily on working with layers so if you are not familiar with them I recommend that you watch the first part of the Photoshop Masterclass series called Foundations.

By the end of this course you will be able to create your own:

  • photo montages
  • adverts
  • movie posters.

A trial of Adobe Photoshop CC or Creative Cloud membership will be needed to get the most out of this course. If you’re not a Creative Cloud member I recommend that you download a free 30-day trial of Adobe Photoshop CC when you start the course.
