Requirements and expectations:
Tom’s Rule of Three: Watch it, Read about it, Do it…(lecture, reading, tutorials)
Introductions; syllabus review and expectations; the textbook, online resources, and the Mac interface; the textbook’s project files and use of image files and lessons; the “nearly-paperless” course modality; use of Photoshop in the design industry—digital imaging as a design tool; quick tour of Photoshop.
Yes, you can earn the Royal Order of the Magic Wand: Believe it or not, if you just do the work, watch the videos, come to class, pay attention, read the book, then do the assignments — and generally mess around and play with Photoshop, you will become quite proficient, quite competent, and feel confident in your skills.
Please read the ENTIRE syllabus. You should have a hard copy. Note: The SYLLABUS is subject to change and it is on this weekly lecture page where changes will be mentioned. You MUST check this site every week for updates etc.
Assignments for this coming week:
Textbook: Photoshop CC 2015 Classroom in a Book
Purchase the a copy (new, used, digital, whatever) of Adobe Photoshop CC Classroom in a Book.
You can get it at our college store or online. Go! Hurry!
After you get the book, go over the “front matter,” the Contents page, Getting Started pages, including the instructions to download all the lesson files. I will also put these lesson files here to download.
For those that do get the course materials, begin working on Lesson 01 in the CIB (Classroom in a Book).
