Photoshop Essentials II – Toolbar

Zoom Class – October 24, 2020 – 9:30 a.m.

This will be the second in a series of Zoom seminars on essential Photoshop tools and techniques. The first program was on Preferences, Color settings and Workspaces. On the Learning page of my website are articles that cover these topics and you can access them at any time. They are free of charge.

The upcoming seminar is on the Photoshop Toolbar. I will discuss how to remove non-essential tools from the bar to simplify the interface. I will also talk about the various tool groups and get into details on the most essential tools.

You can register for the class by email if you plan to attend. I will use the most recent Creative Cloud version of Photoshop, but the techniques I will illustrate will apply to any version of Photoshop.

Cost for this class is $20. Payment should be made using PayPal to my email address, or email me for an address to send a check.

Please sign up for the class by Thursday, October 22nd at noon so invitations to the meeting can be emailed in advance.

My thanks to Derry Township and the Hershey Library for hosting these Zoom meetings.

Photoshop Essentials starts Oct. 17th – register now.

Customizing Photoshop

Creating a custom workspace, using screen modes, modifying preferences, minimizing the toolbar and more in a two part Zoom seminar – starting next week.

I will present two Zoom meetings – October 17th and 24th – hosted by the Hershey Library. The programs will start at 9:30 a.m. and run about 90 minutes each. This is the start of a series of programs on Photoshop Essentials which will continue in January and February, 2021.

There are nearly 70 tools in Photoshop, but you may only need to use a much more limited set to accomplish your goals. Efficient workflow can also be enhanced by setting up your own personal workspace so things you need are available, and others do not clutter your screen.

Just moving through the Preferences can get you more comfortable with how the program works and what you can ignore. Photoshop was not created specifically for photographers, but for graphic designers, and some of the defaults can be changed to make them better for photo editing.

Sign up now for the first Zoom meeting on Saturday, October 17th at 9:30 a.m. The $35 fee covers both that meeting and the following meeting on Saturday, October 24th at 9:30 a.m. This is designed for beginning to intermediate users.

Register by emailing me [mail@brysonleidich.com]. Payment can be by PayPal to my email address or by letting me know you would prefer to send a check. Please register by Thursday noon October 15th as the library would like to have a list to send out the Zoom link on Friday.
