Transcript

  • 1. Crossing Over Into Photoshop
    Adobe Photoshop Tutorials
  • 2. The Tool Bar
    The tool bar in Photoshop is very similar to that in Illustrator, but the tools work differently for RASTER graphics.
    Below is a link to a series of video tutorials for each tool on the toolbar. Please refer to this useful resource when you find yourself unsure of what to do with a tool.

  • 5. About Raster Images
    Raster files differ from vector files in a number of ways, but the following are the key differences.
    Continuous tone
    Raster graphics blend color and value through a series of pixels based on the resolution set out by the designer. Basically, each image represents a series of square-based dots that make up your final product.
  • 6. Resolution
    Pixels per inch (PPI) are a measurement for digital devices, all of which display images through a series of pixels. HD Televisions, for example, are high resolution because of the number of pixels used to define the images on the screen.
    Dots per inch (DPI) are a measurement for print devices, most of which print images through a series of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black dots.
    Basically, the more dots or pixels an image has before you manipulate it, the larger the file.
    It is impossible to improve the resolution of an image beyond it’s original format
  • 7. Resolution in Action
    At 72 ppi resolution this image starts to lose sharp, crisp detail and appears fuzzy.
    At 300 ppi resolution this image is sharp and detailed.
  • 8. Pixilation
    Raster files differ from vector files in a number of ways, but the following are the key differences.
    What you see is usually what you get
    Unlike vector graphics, raster graphics cannot be enlarged without compromising image quality.

  • 9. Go Raster!
    Raster files differ from vector files in a number of ways, but the following are the key differences.
    When is raster better then vector?
    It’s difficult to create photorealistic images, like a natural-looking face with all its shades and contours, using vector art.
    .
    Although both images work graphically, raster graphics allow for more realistic transitions
