Upon successful completion
of this course, students will be able to:
Use Quick Mask mode, alpha channels,
and layer masks to isolate image areas. Create clipping groups to use
one layer’s contents to mask another’s.
Create vector paths as tools for selecting
images, for creating transparent areas in images to be used with other
applications, and for drawing shapes.
Create color swatches, gradients, and
patterns, all of which can be saved and loaded in sets for convenience.
Create layer styles that can apply
effects, colors, patterns, and gradients in one step.
Use the Background Eraser and the Extract command to create complex
masks quickly and accurately, even for images with indistinct edges
and very fine details.
