Course Description

This hands-on Adobe Photoshop CC Training course covers many new features in Adobe Photoshop CC, such as conditional actions, which let you run different actions according to criteria you specify; editable rounded rectangles, which let you designate the curve for each corner of a rectangle separately, and edit them at any time; the Camera Shake Reduction filter, which reduces the blur that can occur with a handheld camera; and refinements to the Crop tool that give you greater control when you’re cropping, straightening, and skewing an image. In addition, the course introduces you to using the Liquify filter as a Smart Filter, using Smart Objects with Iris Blur and other blur options in the Blur Gallery, intelligent upscaling, copying layer attributes to CSS code for use in web pages, and more.
