This DVD isn’t just about what you’ll learn in Photoshop CS5 – it’s also about what you won’t learn. While many beginner DVDs try to teach you everything there is to know about Photoshop, this beginner’s crash course shows you just the things you need to know to start feeling confident in your skills. Bestselling author, Matt Kloskowski, realized that Photoshop is a huge program with a lot of tools, filters, adjustments, palettes, and menu items. So he cuts through the complexity and shows you exactly what you need to know to hit the ground running in Photoshop. Things like:
– Layers and how they’re the key to using Photoshop
– Selections and the only tools you really need to worry about
– Everything you need to get started with Camera Raw
– Which Retouching tools you’ll use the most
When you’re done with this DVD you’ll realize you didn’t learn every little thing there is to know in Photoshop. But you will have a solid grasp of the most important features and you’ll be at the next level in no time.
If you’re already a Photoshop user and want a quick, convenient way to unlock the potential of Photoshop CS5’s new features then this DVD is the place to start. Ideal for people with experience using a previous version of Photoshop (CS4, CS3, or even CS2), the Photoshop CS5 Power Session is the easiest way to learn the new features, tips and shortcuts in Photoshop CS5 so you can start using them right away.
This DVD will teach you:

Mastering Smart Objects
Smart objects and smart filters are powerful tools in the Photoshop workspace. In this course, Dave Cross opens up Photoshop CS5 and begins with the basics of using smart objects and smart filters. He moves on to explain how smart objects can be used with Camera Raw, how they can be used with vector objects, and some tips for working around the limitations of smart objects and filters. In the final lessons of the course, viewers will get a chance to practice what they have learned with a couple of design projects.
7-Point System for Camera Raw
Imagine being able to open any image in Photoshop CS5’s Camera Raw, and know exactly what to do first, what to do second, and how to take it all the way from Flat to Fabulous, just like a pro. That’s the groundbreaking premise behind this course, from Photoshop User magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Scott Kelby (the world’s #1 bestselling Adobe Photoshop author), who rewrites the rules for teaching Photoshop by whittling the Raw photo correction process down to just the seven most important, most essential techniques. In this course, Scott reveals his Seven Point System for Camera Raw that not only breaks things down to just seven simple (yet powerful) techniques, but he’s found a proven method to make it really stick.
Mastering HDR in Photoshop CS5
HDR is one of the hottest trends in digital photography. And now Photoshop CS5 has an entirely new set of features aimed at getting you great HDR photos right out of Photoshop (with no 3rd party plug-ins). In this DVD, HDR pro Matt Kloskowski shows you how to put those new features to work to create some killer HDR photos.
You’ll learn things like:
• What you need to do in-camera to capture HDR photos
• A detailed look at each setting inside CS5’s new HDR Pro tool
• How to use Photoshop to make your HDR photos even better
• HDR settings to create the high-impact fantasy/surreal style photo
• Start to Finish workflows for Lightroom, Photoshop, and Camera Raw
We’ll cover a lot of different HDR styles and you’ll see that creating any of them is just a matter of using the same sliders but in a slightly different way. You’ll also find out how to incorporate HDR into your photographic workflow so the whole process feels seamless. In the end, whatever your taste is, HDR in Photoshop CS5 can help you transform your images into amazing photos and this DVD will help you get there.
