Adobe Photoshop is the industry standard for creating raster/bitmap graphics. This incredibly deep program is used for graphic and web design, image manipulation, photo restoration, digital illustration, and even creating textures, lighting maps, and bump maps for 3D modeling and animation. If it has to do with graphics in any way, you can bet you will find Photoshop at the heart of things. Photoshop also includes increasingly powerful tools for creating vector graphics and type. This course is easily accessibly to those who have never used Photoshop before and progresses through a solid intermediate skill level that will benefit even those who may already use Photoshop on a regular basis.
