The truth is, though you can use Adobe Photoshop CC’s thousands of panels and options, professional, senior graphic designers all over the world only use less than 10% of what this application has to offer. In fact, most professionals only use less than 5% of what Adobe Photoshop CC has to offer.

When I was teaching senior designers from Adobe Photoshop in downtown San Francisco, the class was 4 days long, eight hours a day. But that was with 20 people in the class and lot of questions. The school I was teaching for wanted money. In their minds, “Give the class more hours and then people will pay more money.” Fine.

Selection Tools

Selection Tools are the backbone of Photoshop.  When you hear someone say, “That was Photoshopped”, then most likely, a selection tool made it happen.

In this video, we introduce how most of the selection tools work, a little bit the same.  They are all very different, but watching this video will show you how to add to a selection, subtract from a selection and much more.

Selecting oval and circle shapes.

Selecting straight, angled surfaces.

Words can’t tell you what this thing does, but it comes in real handy.

When All else fails and you need a really good, complex selection, roll up your sleaves and use the Quick Mask Tool.

You could do this for years and years in Adobe Illustrator–decades in fact! Now you can do it in Adobe Photoshop CC.

This may sound like a stupid title, but I use these shapes to make background for text and images.  There are a couple of ways to get it done.  I think you´ll like both.

Replacing Cloudy Skies with Adobe Photoshop CC is a snap, and it´s lots of fun.

The Adobe Photoshop CC Clone Tool is a very handy tool used to cover something with texture from an image. Almost every model you see in a magazine has been under The Adobe Photoshop CC Clone Tool.
