This new title teaches advanced design techniques using one of the most popular photo editing programs on the market, Adobe Photoshop CS2. Using step-by-step tutorials, students work with curves, levels, blending modes, special effects, and painting and drawing tools to create beautiful designs and images. They are challenged not only as Photoshop users, but as designers, and learn about the design profession by following the steps a designer would take to complete real-world projects. They also learn what works in a design, and what doesn?t. Students then take their craft a step further through advanced end of chapter learning projects. The book's full color interior and highly-visual design combine to make the ideal book for learning advanced design techniques using the latest version of Adobe Photoshop.
