About This Class

Type is one of the most ubiquitous elements in any online course. Yet, as learning developers, we often think little about typographical choices and settle for program defaults.

The use of green screen video can help make your courses more engaging and visually interesting. Many think that green screen production is difficult-- however, with Photoshop you can create gorgeous green screen backgrounds in just a few minutes. 

In this course, using Photoshop, you'll learn to create engaging green screen backgrounds for your courses. You'll understand how to setup your Photoshop Image and create engaging backgrounds that will always make the instructor look good!

With Green Screen Visuals...
