Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Jesus Ramirez, and welcome to my course: Photoshop CC Mastering Compositing. I am a graphic designer, instructor, and speaker with over 14 years of design and technology experience. I have been a speaker at some of the largest design and photography events around the world, and have been invited by Adobe to speak at events in the United States, Australia, Latin America, and Asia. I'm most well-known as the founder and host of the Photoshop Training channel, one of the most popular Photoshop YouTube channels in the world. In this course, I will show you how to master compositing in Photoshop. This course is not about the tools in Photoshop or how they work; instead, we will focus on the compositing principles that most people never think about, and how you can use Photoshop to tackle those principles. This is a project-based course, and everything that we will discuss will help you make better composites. Some of the major topics that we will cover in this course include: matching the perspective of your images to make realistic composites. Applying atmospheric perspective to imply depth in a photo. Matching lighting, saturation, and ambient color. Applying lighting to a composite. Creating realistic shadows, and much more. By the end of this course, you will have a deep understanding of what it takes to combine multiple images from different sources to make them seem like a single photo. I hope that you will join me in this journey to learn composting with the Photoshop CC Mastering Compositing course, at Pluralsight.
