Down and Dirty Tricks for Photoshop CS5 Seminar

Having recently upgraded to the CS5 suite of Adobe products, I decided to attend the Kelby training for Down & Dirty Tricks for Adobe Photoshop CS5. It was an “All Day” seminar with classes beginning at 10 am and ending at 5pm. The seminar was conducted Corey Barker a instructor part of the NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals).

They covered designing and working with photos in Photoshop including layers and compositing effects, designing with type, and several sessions on tips and tricks with Photoshop CS5. They showed the tricks on how movie poster effects and magazine ads are made with using your photos and Photoshop.

For $100 for Non NAPP members, it was a great deal. I learned quite a bit and further honed my Photoshop skills. I also decided to join NAPP. With membership, you get discounts to places like B&H photo, Apple and others as well as free access to training, technical support for Photoshop and a great Photoshop magazine that has 8 issues a year. By signing up at the conference, I also got free DVD tutorials and book valued much more that the price of the two -year membership.

If you are interested in learning more about how to use Photoshop, I highly recommend taking one of these seminars. You can find more about them at
