Overview
The 14 project-based lessons in this book show students step-by-step the key techniques for working in Photoshop and how to manipulate images, edit motion-based content, and create image composites.In addition to learning the key elements of the Photoshop interface, this completely revised CC (2017 release) edition covers automatically repairing empty areas of a merged panorama using Content-Aware Fill, making the noise level of a Blur Gallery effect consistent with an image, and adding specialized type characters more easily in the new Glyphs Panel.
