This workshop will use Adobe Photoshop to explore how to create and optimize gif, transparent gif, jpeg, and png files for use on the web.
Learn about when to use what file format; jpeg compression; ppi; color palette options; the secrets to great web photos and images; and techniques for creating optimized background images. You'll also explore Photoshop's powerful layers feature and get an introduction and examples of how to use Photoshop as a tool for creating advanced website designs.
Students need to be familiar with Adobe Photoshop and should have an introductory understanding of Adobe Creative Cloud. Also, some understanding of CSS and HTML is helpful, but not necessary.
Class will take place in a computer lab with Mac interface and Adobe Creative Cloud applications. Students must have an Adobe Creative Cloud login prior to attending class.
