Learn Adobe Photoshop CS5 by Video Core Training in Visual Communication

Video Description

This innovative product from Adobe Press combines interactive video and a full-color printed reference to teach the fundamentals of Photoshop CS5 as well as the basic principles of graphic design. Structured around the objectives of the 'Visual Communication using Adobe Photoshop CS5' exam at the Adobe Certified Associate level, this Adobe-approved product teaches how to edit images with precise selection control and create dramatic visual effects with Photoshop. Experienced instructors present 19 hours of high quality HD video, complete with lesson files, assessment quizzes and review materials. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic and also bookmark individual sections for later review. The unique Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to work alongside in Photoshop. Project files used in the lessons are included on the disc so viewers can practice what they've learned, and interactive review questions help reinforce freshly gained knowledge.
