Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Matthew Scheuerman. I'm a web designer and freelance concept artist and matte painter. I've been a professional web designer for about 11 years and a freelance concept artist and matte painter for about six. In that time, I've learned tricks from the entertainment industry that I've applied to my day job as a web designer. In this course, we are going to learn some of these techniques. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to clean up an image the way that matte painters do but output that to web, how to use Photoshop like people in different industries do and how you could apply this to your skillset, and how to work faster by working a bit smarter. By the end of the training, you will have learned how to output crisper imagery ready for the web and speed up your workflow by thinking and working differently. I'm excited to work with Digital Tutors and share these techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
