The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.

Courses - Photoshop 102
Description: Using Photoshop
Running Time: 74 minutes
Pre-Requisites: Photoshop 101 strongly recommended
We use Photoshop 7 in this class, but the lessons are valid for just about every version of Photoshop, including Elements. The concepts are the same regardless of Photoshop version.
This class picks up where we left off with Photoshop 101. We spend a good deal of time editing an old photograph of a house. We'll crop it, adjusting color and contrast, and make it look like new. We'll also teach you more with selections, and show you some of the useful tools, like the dodge tool, sponge, and more.

First, I'm going to show you how to load up a picture and crop off the parts you don't want. Here's the before image:

And here's the after. As you can see, we got rid of all the junk around the house, and straightened it out.

Next, we'll learn how to adjust contrast and color levels.

Now we're left with a more natural looking sky and lawn.

Next we'll use the Dodge Tool to bring out some of the features in this picture. Notice how you can make out more of the detail in the bushes.

You'll learn more selection tricks, such as using the eliptical marquee tool, resizing while selecting, clearing an area, transform, and scaling and copying an object.

You'll learn about the Nudge technique, and learn much more about the Magnetic Lasso tool, transformations, perspective, and the Magic Wand.
