Adobe Photoshop Training Courses

Adobe Photoshop is used for creating and editing photos and artwork.

Photoshop was developed as a tool to enhance photos, but over time its functionality has developed to the point where it can be used for much more.

Adobe Photoshop provides a layer-based editing system that enables image creation and altering with multiple overlays that support transparency.

Photoshop has been the industry standard image manipulation program for so long that it’s common to say that an image has been “photoshopped”.

Keystroke Learning’s Adobe Photoshop courses cater for all levels of user, from beginners to advanced.

As a beginner, you will be able to build up a solid foundation, whilst advanced users can build on their experience by working with the rich capabilities of Photoshop.

Our skilled Adobe Photoshop trainers with many years of experience lead our courses.  With hands-on Full day, or Two day course options, you will leave with practical experience including useful tips and tricks.

If you prefer a group booking for your team, or 1 on 1 training, contact us to discuss your needs. We also have customised course options available for your precise requirements.

Adobe Photoshop FAQ

Who uses Adobe Photoshop?

Adobe Photoshop is considered essential software for graphic design. It is part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud, which includes Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, Dreamweaver, Acrobat Pro, Lightroom and several other tools. Photoshop’s primary functions are photo editing, website design, and the creation of elements for graphical work. It is also commonly used to create layouts for design, such as posters and business cards, although these tasks may be performed more efficiently using Illustrator or InDesign.

Photoshop also integrates tightly with other Adobe products, such as Indesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, and more. Learn more about Creative Cloud.
Key features of Photoshop:

  • Precise Photo Editing
  • Graphics Creation
  • Website Design
  • Project Layout
  • ePub Support

These are just some of the features in Adobe Photoshop, but it’s such a huge application that this is really just the tip of the iceberg.

Should I buy an Adobe Photoshop for Dummies book or attend a Training Course?

Have you ever wondered why the Dummies books are so popular? Well, it’s probably because so many of us are self-taught, using Google to find out how to use a function, or we are shown how to use software by someone at work. Although this can be useful, it also means we tend to spend a lot of time with trial and error, or we are just picking up somebody else’s bad habits. Trial and error unfortunately involves a lot of error, and the bad habits you pick up will probably be passed on to the next person, so soon they spread across the business, meaning entire teams can end up working inefficiently.

At this point, you might head to the bookstore or do an online search to find an Adobe Photoshop for Dummies book to help solve some of those tricky issues. That’s a step in the right direction, and we sometimes use reference manuals ourselves. The problem is that trying to learn by trial and error may cost you many times the cost of a good training course.

Our Adobe Photoshop courses are designed to target the key features and tools included in the application to help you get back to work and apply them right away.

What’s the difference between Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator?

There are many tasks that can be completed using either, or both. Sometimes it comes down to the software you are most comfortable using. In a nutshell – use Photoshop to retouch or colour correct photos, and clean up old photos. Perhaps you have a scanned image an old picture that has been damaged. If so, Photoshop is the best tool out there to fix it.

Photoshop also makes it simple to cut together simple video clips and then add filters, text, animation and much more.

Adobe Illustrator on the other hand can be used if you need to create a logo, icon or brand mascot. Because Illustrator uses vector shapes and lines, they can be scaled up to any size, making it ideal for images that need to be used in many ways.

Illustrator is excellent for designing posters, business cards and flyers. Vector tools can be used to create visually punchy headlines. If you need to set type for a logo, Illustrator’s typesetting features are flexible and powerful, enabling text to be transformed into fully editable shapes that can be scaled and transformed any way you can imagine.

Is there a way to save my favourite tools in Photoshop?

This is a common request. When you find yourself using a set of tools again and again, it makes sense to set up your workspace
Photoshop comes with several built-in workspace layouts for different tasks. These show just the panels that you would typically need for a particular type of task, such as retouching. You can find them by clicking on the pop-up menu at the right end of the Options Bar.

To create your own custom workspace layout, just click-and-drag the panels to the way you want them. You can nest panels so they appear one in front of another. To do this, drag one panel over the other, and when you see a blue outline appear, release the mouse button.

Add more panels by going to the Window menu. Once your panels are set up where you want them, go to the Window menu and choose New Workspace, then give your workspace a name. If you need to reset your workspace, select the workspace pop-up menu and choose Reset.

Can I change part of an image to black and white?

Of course, this is quite simple in Photoshop, depending on the complexity of the image. In fact, there are several ways to do it. The basic steps are: select the area you want to change using one of the selection tools. From the layers panel, select the icon that allows you to create a new fill or adjustment layer (it looks like a half circle with black and white sides). From the drop-down list, select Hue/Saturation.

A new panel appears. To remove the colour from your selection, just drag the Saturation slider all the way to the left. This will remove all the colour from your selection, turning it black and white while the rest of your image remains the same.

Can I remove the ugly powerlines from my picture?

Yep! Photoshop has some fantastic tools for this very purpose. Most of us have some great pictures that are spoiled because we managed to get some powerlines, fences or embarrassing uncles in the picture. To remove them you can use something like the Content Aware Fill.

Select the area you want to remove. Then choose Fill, and from the dialog box, select Content Aware. Once you choose Ok, the selected content is removed, and the area is filled to match the surrounding pixels. Magic!

I took a series of panorama shots on my camera, can I make them into a single image ?

Photoshop can do this task very well. From the File menu, select Automate, Photomerge. Select the source files (or folder) and the options you want. Try Auto first since that may be perfectly fine for your needs. Once you click Ok, Photoshop will process the images, looking for similarities, adjusting for changes of camera tilt etc. After a few moments, your images are combined, layered and adjusted. Save the result and you’re good to go.
