Photoshop Deep Dive: Content Aware & Cloning

Ready to take your Photoshop skills to the next level? Join me for a full-day immersion into Photoshop’s Content-Aware technology. I cover everything you need to know about Photoshop's Content-Aware tools and commands, in which Photoshop intelligently analyzes your images for optimum results when resizing, removing, or moving objects around.

You'll learn concrete and practical uses for all of these tools including Content-Aware Fill, Content-Aware Move, and Content-Aware Patch, plus you'll learn how to use alpha channels to get the absolute most out of resizing your images for specific output sizes with Content-Aware Scale. And when these tools don't do a perfect job? That's when the Clone Stamp tool comes in! By the end of this deep dive, you'll have mastered the art of using all these tools non-destructively for maximum flexibility when editing your images. Here's what people are saying about the course:

"LOVE Lesa! Her very down-to-earth approach makes her workflow easily understandable and replicable. It's not just aimlessly following steps, but nor is it relaying concepts and then good-luck-to-you on how to apply them. She has great examples and a wonderful sense of humour! I've learned a lot from several of her courses." Nov. 9, 2014 by RD
