Learning Adobe Photoshop is quite scary to many since it is a “big software and intimidating”. It is the main choice by the “pros” out there for professional image editing.
But some of our brave students from Wells On Nut proved that Photoshop can be conquered even by the grade level they are in now, which is middle school . They are happy to share some of their work here.
Under the guidance of their dedicated teacher, Mr. Jess, the students delved into the basics of what Photoshop can offer for beginners. Each one-hour session was a fun, hands-on discovery of basic Photoshop tools that can turn keen creatives from nobodies to conquerors.
The following skills were learned and applied to their digital artworks:
- Using selection tools to seamlessly cut the edges of a text or image
- Using the adjustment layers to alter colors, lights, and shadows
- Using Layer masking to hide or show part of the image
- Choosing the right font styles and combinations
- Applying gradient colors for background or texts
- Using blend modes to mix elements for an overall desired look
With every passing session, the students’ confidence in conquering Photoshop and their proficiency grew as evident in the output below.
From movie posters, Halloween-themed graphics that sent shivers down the spine, and banners for travel guides that beckoned wanderlust—they explored a diverse array of projects, each showcasing their evolving ability of Photoshop’s myriad features.
The skills learned from this after-school class are not only meant for Photoshop but can also be applied with other graphic designing software such as Pixlr, GIMP, or Canva. When you learn or conquer Photoshop you are ready to use any image editing software out there.
Our middle school students are just starting. There are more cool projects waiting to be discovered. They started from nothing but now are conquerors! You can be like them, too.
Conquering Adobe Photoshop after-school class will continue for another term. Don’t miss this opportunity. If you are interested, be sure to contact Wells On Nut school office.
