Adobe Photoshop Training
Excel Academy’s graphic design course will first cover the Adobe Photoshop software. Our Photoshop training will include the basic uses of the software and will then move on to more advanced features that the software has to offer.
Adobe Photoshop is a powerful photo editing software that provides many image editing features/effects that enables people to add a professional touch to their images, artwork, designs and many more. Adobe Photoshop is recognised as the market leader for commercial bitmap and image manipulation software and is the flagship product of Adobe Systems. Hence, Photoshop is a great software for people who love to edit and improve the quality of their images. With that being said, Photoshop is the most common editing software used by professional editors, photographers, designers, artists and more.
In addition, Photoshop equips you with the right tools to create amazing and realistic images via the manipulation of images and outstanding effects. In simpler terms, Photoshop’s purpose is to fix exposure, contrast, colour, tone images to look more intriguing and have that extra bit of quality. Our training will explore areas such as the layering effect, selection tool, pen tool and more.
Adobe Illustrator Training
In the second part of the training, we will cover the usage of Adobe Illustrator software. Adobe Illustrator is a drawing software that enables users to make technical illustrations, elaborate drawings, graphics and page designs for print, the Internet and multimedia. Adobe Illustrator is the leading industry-standard vector graphics software as it is used by millions of graphic designers and artists to create everything from web and mobile graphics to logos, icons, book illustrations, product packaging, and billboards. In lay-man terms, Illustrator is a digital drawing software that allows users to turn simple shapes into graphics that are beautiful and outstanding. It also can be said that Illustrator allows the expression of creativity through freehand drawing, tracing and recolouring of graphics to turn them into works of art which can be expressed therapeutically and also be used professionally through printed pieces, presentations, websites, blogs, and social media.
In addition, it offers an abundance of drawing tools, painting tools and typography features that allows users to express their creativity. In other words, Illustrator has a huge number of powerful creative tools that allow users to experiment/carry out trial and error with the effects provided by the software. The software features several creative tools which includes path editing, point alignment, stroke options, a smoothing tool, precise positioning, erasing options, blog brushing, pencilling, flexible brushing, live tracing, etc. The typography features include transparent text effects, ligatures and more while the program also features creative colour effects such as 3D effects, live distortion and blending.
