    Strengthen your knowledge of Layers and start “working smarter” with Smart Objects in Photoshop CS6 in this 45-video course with pro Photoshop educator, Dan Moughamian...

    You work hard to make your image files look great, but why not also work “smart”? In Dan Moughamian’s course on Layers and Smart Objects, you will learn how to do just that. Layers are the foundation of almost every Photoshop project. They allow you to keep every essential object in your project independent, allowing for extreme flexibility in editing, modifying and filtering. Dan expertly guides you through the mechanics of utilizing layers in Photoshop, deepening your knowledge-base and giving you the assurance that you’re building on a solid foundation.

    Next, Dan introduces you to Smart Objects. As the name suggests, these objects, and the pro techniques that Dan gives you, will help you work faster but also “smarter.” Creating Smart Objects lets you preserve your original image content and then allows you to edit non-destructively so you can re-use the results many times. Dan’s detailed explanations will quickly enable you to harness the versatility and intelligence built into Photoshop’s Smart Objects.

    From there, Dan dives into the exciting area of Effects. You will be “glowing” with excitement after Dan teaches you how to add “Glows”, “Shadows” and many other popular effects to your Photoshop files.

    As this course draws to its conclusion, you’ll have an excellent understanding of the inner workings of Photoshop Layers and Smart Objects and common Effects, giving you the knowledge and new skills to take your images to the next level… and beyond!
