Wish you could take gorgeous photos? now you can ! see our Review of a New Educational Resource – Tools and Techniques for Creative Photography – eBook
As we are starting to introduce more advanced photography and Photoshop tutorials we would like to finalize the basics. If you do not use Photoshop yet, this is a good time to start.
For me Adobe Photoshop is the most fascinating piece of software, ever. I took my first Photoshop class in college in 1999. And after 11 years of using it, for work and fun, I still discover some new functions and tricks that advance my skill.
The tutorial video (above) is the 3-rd part of the foundation series:
Photoshop, Bridge and Adobe Camera Raw are three separate applications that come with Photoshop Installation and together these 3 allow you to download from camera/card, organize, process in raw, and of course, edit and retouch your images.
There are two versions of Photoshop CS5: Photoshop CS5 and Photoshop CS5 Extended. The difference between the extended version and regular is that extended has everything that regular does plus 3D image creation and editing and rich motion graphics editing.
Photoshop CS5 cost $699 on Adobe site and on Amazon about $634.99 for PC and $657.99 for Mac
Photoshop CS5 Extended for PC listed on Adobe for $999 and on Amazon about $888.00 for PC and $989.00 for Mac
Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended Students and Teachers Edition.
Is the same application as Photoshop CS5 Extended but is discounted for teachers and students.
Who is qualifies for Educational edition:
Required Proof of Eligibility:
In order to install the Adobe Student Edition software, you (or the person you are buying the product for) must first obtain a serial number by submitting proof of eligibility to Adobe. read about eligibility details
Adobe Photoshop Extended CS5 Student & Teacher Edition is $192.00 for PC and $192.00 for Mac
There is also another solution for beginners on the budget: Adobe Photoshop Elements 9
The big plus is that Photoshop Elements also comes with Adobe Bridge and Adobe Camera Raw. Elements is a unique software which is scaled down and simplified version of Photoshop. Together with Bridge and Adobe Camera Raw it is a powerful application and is great for enhancing, sharing and organizing your photos. The best thing about Elements is its price: If you buy from Adobe its 79.99 and from Amazon $69 for PC and Mac.
All of Adobe applications are available to download as 30 day trial at Adobe.com.
As LearnMyShot is moving ahead we hope everyone will be equipped with right tools to implement current and future tutorials.
