Finally, finally twotwotwotwo photoshop photoshop photo – – – -jajajaj Welcome to a new super tutorial by RunbenGuo at last, finally the 10 first steps to start in photoshop a very requested tutorial because as already you know I have the first 10 steps to start with premiere 10 first steps to get started with lightroom and the first steps to get started with after effects then the photoshop was missing and why then because the course of photoshop the great course of photoshop super course because it is not a course only There are two courses, one basic to start or for those who already have a medium level but they have learned a little bit from there a little bit from then their training of photoshop is like a gruyère cheese so full of holes and they need good solid foundations on which to build all the knowledge of the application and then move on to the next photoshop course to photographers in which we see much more complex things already focused on world of professional photography then as this course is already well I create this tutorial of the first 10 steps it takes to get started in photoshop if you have no idea about photoshop or not know not even what can be done with photoshop or what this app is about Well, with this tutorial I'm going to try not to be very long but it will be full you can go in and see if you are interested in the application or not and see if you are interested in going deeper or learning the basic things and you only need minimum necessary to start working so if we roll more let's see the first 10 steps to get started with adobe photoshop right here we are on the computer so the first thing we have to do to to start with photoshop is to open photoshop so let's open it here click This pretty lady appears and the first thing we have is the screen of welcome or start if the first time we open photoshop it will not come out here nothing these images are recent objects that is, photographs recent ones that I have opened so they appear here because it is comfortable for me then you can click on them to reopen them and work even more on them then we will see very quickly the first point that is to open images in photoshop the first we have already seen is to click on objects Recent we have here a lot more things on how to organize them than good the course is seen in depth but well then we have the typical ways of open photographs here on the left we have directly open then We can go to the folder on the computer where we have the photos and open them or also here file open open like open a bunch of options and then Also, if we bring a folder with images, we can directly click drag and we take the photographs so I think good This is simple but it is interesting to know how to do it because there are times when for example if we open this photograph directly we drag it into photoshop tells us a little message like this so let's see what it means document 2 taos in almería has an embedded color profile that does not matches the workspace, what does this refer to when we open a photograph is telling us that the photograph has an srgb color profile and that photoshop has a workspace that is, it works with color adobe rgb well we can't get involved here much about what this means because it is endless it is telling us that there are times that we open photographs that have as a color space, that is, an interpretation by to put it that way about the colors and yet Photoshop has another one then you have to Knowing that photoshop in general works with rgb is how we work unless let's go to print then it will be cmyk and then when we export to the network we have srgb is the color space in which we have to export but that we will see later then we have different options here to use the embedded that is to say use the one with the image convert the document to space work that is to say convert to rgb that is to say what photoshop works and then remove the embedded profile in this case if I will work for example to export for the web I want to continue working with srgb for example although it is smaller color space than adobe rgb but hey, we can't get into more details so I would directly give ok It is already we have the photograph open so the first step is simple.
I think this is simple, we are not going well, we are doing well, right? ok after cut like we crop or modify the size of an image etc. etc. there are many options always in photoshop is so wide everything that has a lot of options so in this tutorial I am going to tell the most basic questions: simpler so that we can handle ourselves and the way I do things then cropping an image is super simple with the tool that we have here on the left cut because your fixes here we have the left a lot of tools later here we have the typical menus and then here we have the panels that we are going to see a little by little then trim this tool here which is to always trim the shortcuts if we can use them much better so if for example we are with the "V" which is to move and we want to cut then we go here or we give the "C" then c ok let's see for example if I I want to make it smaller is simply to click one of the corners then notice that the cropping ratio changes if I don't want it to I changed it, I press shift then it saves it for me and if what I want is that both from above and to the left as from below to the right I keep reminding myself of the image that is not only from one side and from above then I press shift and alt then take a look and we crop the image proportionally everywhere by Anywhere it is worth also we can turn it for example as done this then just putting the cursor a little bit outside the corner then notice that a curve changes so we can cut this is very simple but we have here some very powerful questions because look here on the right we have an option within the crop tool from remember according to content this to what this refers not many people know Well, for example, if we have enlarged an image, that is, we have not made it smaller but a little bigger and notice it appears as a black part we can say buff well I can't I can't do this no maybe I want to increase the frame a little there for some reason and I can't, well we can because with this option to cut according to content we do the image as we want then we give enter begins to recalculate and cross out! analyze with the magic algorithms of photoshop how is the content around of the black part and expands it then it is super powerful so point 2 cropping and cropping according to content is worth an extra thing if we remove the lock of this layer because it is a background we remove the lock click and so now we do control or command in mac T lets us freely transform the image so we are not changing the canvas and the image but only the image then we can create a canvas as a little bigger than the picture or we can modify the proportion or we can give the right click and here we have a lot of options to change the scale rotate distort, perspective a lot of things that we do not have time to see now but let us know that by doing control and command we can transform you freely the picture inside the canvas is worth We continue to point 3 layers let's see what this layering means so I'm going to bring a couple of images that are going to be this and the one we have is worth coming we are going to click this then how do we bring an image into another then we simply click on the image and drag within the canvas of the image that we already have open we click on then look at it opens with the option transform free so we can press shift transform it keeping the proportions interesting, I keep the proportions we give to ok and then now what happens that you only see the image that we have brought over is say the layers work as if they were folios or images on paper that are put one on top of the other that's why they are layers so if we bring an image and we enlarged it on top of the one we had then the one below I don't know go but the one above yes then we can go here to the right to this panel that puts layers that if we do not have this panel open or not we have here to the right we can go here to window and here we have layers and if not if we have the work space in a mess that we know we have here the options for different types of workspaces are here by default or we can restore to essential aspects or we can save some our that we have already designed I try to go a little fast so that this video make it endless but later in the course I go much more calmly to make it much more detailed and enjoying the process but here I want in a few minutes you can give you an overview that you can start to use the application then we are with the layers we have a layer above and another below we have the layers panel there then on the left at layers we have little eyes to show or hide each of the layers then If I show hidden the top then I see the bottom hidden from the top see what below simply this is the most basic concept to understand what are the layers are some images on top of others so we can directly enter the next point is point 4 which are the layer masks which are the layer masks is just like creating a mask to a layer that hides or lets show that same layer, that is, we we create here below we have the easiest way to create a button layer mask add layer mask click is created for the layer that we have selected a mask appears in which we can paint with white or black to tell it if that piece of the layer in question we want it to be transparent or opaque or directly as it is opaque directly I'm going to do it I take the brush tool b we have it here on the left brush tool b then we make the big brush we take the default colors white and black that if we do not have them selected here on the left below we have to give "D" then the default colors are selected.
it's black and white if we want to paint in black and it's like background color here we have it set background color set with the then we can exchange them by giving the "x" x fixes change the foreground and background colors then now having the layer mask selected which is white we are going to paint in black then let us see the layer below that is simply a layer mask is say a mask that tells the original layer if it is going to be transparent or not and then you will see the below so what we are going to do is create a very smooth gradient from black to white to show the layer below but very smoothly make the transition very smooth as the gradients are created then here where the paint pot is, we click, we leave tight that This is how the tools that are inside a tool are displayed. sub-tools and here we have degraded tools so take a look that we have here the degraded options we have many different ones I'm going to choose this here that puts linear gradient I select it and I will select the default black and white colors there is black and white so what I want the bottom of the top image to be black in the layer mask so that it is erased so to speak so that it is made transparent however that the one above which is where the sky is follow white so that it merges with the one below so we just click I'm going to press shift to keep the straight line and make it a gradient completely straight ohhhh interesting interesting I need it to be bigger the black part so I'm just going to keep painting I can paint as many times as you want until you get an effect that I like good out there I think it's fine then look at this what I've done I've painted on a mask a cape so to speak white from black to white and then how is a layer mask that tells the layer which parts are going to be transparent and which parts are going to be opaque and therefore what parts are going to be superimposed on the image below, it's that simple, look at it how easy it is to understand layers and layer masks "maca dandruff" it's worth more things let's see with this image acne acne we are going to open it and we are going to see a classic in all photoshop courses which is remove pimples this that we love hehe we love to remove pimples and whenever there is a photoshop course or a tutorial there is how to remove pimples then this is can be done in many ways but the easiest is to use the tool spot concealer brush that is the letter j we click or we give the j on the tool then it is as if it were a brush but it will simply remove the grains I will do the brush a little smaller how is it done well we can go as long as there is a brush up here we have all the options for each tool or control alt click right button and move left or right and we resize up and down we change hardness this in mac is different on mac is option command left button and we click and drag to the left or to the right that is, it is a little different in windows alt control right click and drag and now we just paint with this specific correction brush and we are erasing the grains uhmm ..
ahhh what a pleasure I'm going to fast-forward it and now we have it, look at it, we have started from this and with a few clicks with the spot healing brush tool we got this good good good interesting, right ?? interesting ok let's go back to the image of the beginning and let's now to see how to make selections we are going to use the selection tool fast which is the most common of the common although there are a lot of ways to select things for example when they are trees that are complex of select a sky that is complex because there are a lot of tree objects because there are a lot of options to select backgrounds people objects and this in the course because there are several episodes about it but here we are going to see the most common of the common because it is super common to use this tool It is the one that is used the most so we go here to the left where it says quick selection tool which is the letter w that we also have inside the magic wand the well-known magic wand then quick selection and now we just have to make a selection clicking as if painting around the people who are happening because a part of the image is selecting me so strange because because look this is important we have selected an image that is not the one we want to always select this in photoshop when we work with layers is important to keep in mind we always have to make sure that we have selected the layer so let's select the layer that we want to undo the selection with control or command "D" and now yes Now we are going to paint, look at how fast I click, two clicks, I could remove it a little more but for the moment it's worth it so now just with this selection made we can go up here where you put selection and apply mask so this is a tool that allows us to refine the selection a little more fix it so to speak and then export to a new layer and so on then we have here several options for example brush tool for refine edges we can click but first we zoom a little and then we imagine that this part of here I did not want it well we could give it a little here to paint to erase it to remove all that also here because well it is a matter of refining the selection then once we have it here we have several options for example activate smart radio smart radio is like an option that has photoshop of analyze and further refine where the edges are then for example here where is this hair here it has done a good job because it has analyzed where is the hair and where is the bottom and then makes a selection much more fine later we can change the radius for example if it has caught a little hair and we have to take a little more look here at 20 pixels it works well then here we have global refinements so rounded fade contrast but hey this is a bit of a tutorial simply that let us know that we have these options to further refine the selection that we have created and then down here we have to decontaminate colors that comes very well usually works very well to decontaminate as background colors that are put into the object for example and then send to, which is where we want it submit this selection simply creating a selection on the layer that we had selected or layer mask or new layer or new layer with mask layer that is usually what I use so I click from ok and then look we have a new layer that is, we have the original one and then a new layer with layer mask we already know what it is and the layer mask are simply selected those two people yet this selection could be refined a a little more because look, he has taken part that is not a person so I eat now we know how to work with layer masks we would take the brush the tool "B" then we would take the color what color what color black then we have it here selected black front color we would make the brush a little smaller with alt control we click we move it and now we are simply painting the areas that the selection has taken that do not belong to the person or but what we could do is select the mask we have it selected here and we go here to the properties panel that if we do not have it then the same we will Properties window here it is we would give you to select apply mask and we can again apply the changes we need to the selection then we would give ok and then we can continue working on our selection and on our layers without layer masks and all this is worth let's go to the next point that is to fill according to content we are going to open this image of gandalfa then let's see the incredible power of the tool fill in according to content this is built into many tools but we can use it directly when we want to delete an element from the image for example, look at these electricity lines these cables electricity in the photo that I uploaded to my instagram was not so let's see how to remove it there are many ways to remove it but let's just see how to remove this stick with the lasso tool and fill according to content then look here on the left tool "L" loop we have loop the polygonal magnetic loop in this case loop is worth normal loop then as if we were a cowboy who throws a lasso and launches a loop like this over an object that you want to delete later simply with that we do shift f5 the option to fill appears that also we have it here in edition fill in here we have it and then we just have to select according to content we give ok and tachán magic magic potagia amazing then in this super powerful way we can delete elements even even large elements of photography because it analyzes has an algorithm in the which parses the textures and pixels around the selection very well we have done and then interprets how the inner part of the selection ok let's see now smart objects point 8 objects smart also very important to know what is this in photoshop ok as we know in lightroom the workflow is non-destructive that is to say everything what we do in photography is reversible absolutely everything without However in photoshop it is a little different we have the history panel we have other options undo a few things that allow us to undo steps but the things we are doing about photography is as if were recorded unless we turn the photograph into an object smart than this to understand it like this quickly for those who come from video of after effects and premiere it is as if it were nest or pre-compose, that is, we put the image in a box as if it were a transparent box a plastic film and then we apply everything on top of that film but the image is as if it remains intact inside then We are going to convert this image, which is a background, into a normal layer.
padlock and then we simply have to go here to filter convert to smart filters cross out as simple as so now we can apply a lot of filters and a lot of questions that will be saved as smart filters is to say that it will not be a workflow destructive then I select the layer we are going to see it in a very simple way filter camera raw filter camera raw very important in photoshop to know how it works and to know that it is as if Let's say the father of lightroom, that is, everything that lightroom has is here put in camera raw but in my opinion a little less intuitive and comfortable to use in lightroom apart from having an interface much more complete as it has other functions integrated that make it much more manageable then well let's make the changes we want I'll make very rough so that we see it like this and exposure and lighting is good so it is already I give to accept then look now this has not been applied on the image itself but on the layer or film that covers the image so we have here under the layer smart filters and raw camera filter and we can activate it you can activate it then this is very comfortable because it even has a layer mask that we can paint on to hide or show the effects we have created and we have one more amount of effects and filters because now we can click here for example to create an effect blur gaussian blur we blur the whole image if we want that if not o noise filter and reduce noise o artistic filters en say we have a lot of filters around about 100 filters inside photoshop so we already know how to create a smart object and how to apply filters ok and when we have everything we have already made all the changes that we want in photography so now we have to know how to save then We have the basic options which is then Iraqi file save then it tells us how do we want to save it if the first time we are saving the photograph it is as if we were opening the save mode as then we go where we want for example on the desktop we put the name and then here we type the type of format in which we want to save the photograph if it is a working format that is to say that we want it to save all all the layers all the filters all the things we have done and then continue working on the image then it has to be photoshop that is psd or tiff here at the bottom we have it tiff both formats save everything we do on the image if we want to export for the web or for wherever then we could use for example jpg png if we want that keep transparency because there is part of the image that is transparent because it is a logo or whatever this is a typical way to save images but in I generally do when I save the images to export them for the web or for social networks also I use an old command but that is very very powerful that is alt control shift "s" which is to save for web here we have it then here in a very simple way we can compress the image but keeping the quality and also convert to srgb which is what we want when we export for the web because many people ask me olle is that I export the photographs and later when I upload them they look terrible, you see another color it is not the same they have deceived me then this is because we are saving in adobe rgb that is to say the color mode that I mentioned at the beginning which is what the photoshop workspace works with however the browsers and a lot of other systems screens etc.
Use the srgb color space which is standard i.e. rgb color space but standard so that everyone, so to speak, understands each other then look here at we can zoom this image a little bit – to see which one we could directly resize the image that I normally upload to internet I do not save with more than 2500 pixels of larger side then here as we have the proportions activated because we can put what we want but in general even 1500 depends for whatever would be enough later up here we have the quality that with 70 is more than enough for the internet and then here We would then have jpg gif png and all these options depend on what we want to save and we will not need to touch anything else then look at this image that at first because it occupied it seems to me that it was about 20 megabytes we are exporting to an image that occupies 300k's much lighter for share on social networks or on the web so you are already ten first steps to start with photoshop is over my mother my mother great long tutorial it is impossible not to do a long photoshop tutorial because it is super wide, see what it has to do two courses in total about 12 hours of training on photoshop and now with this tutorial and with that course there is a lot of knowledge to be able to use the app for a long time so many many thanks for see the tutorial I really hope you liked that it has helped you have you learned remember that every Wednesday I try to upload training quality on photography and video so if you don't want to miss the video I'm going to go up next week give subscribe so we'll just see you next week goodbye at last photoshop¡ photoshop¡ photoshop¡ photoshop¡ photoshop¡ photoshop¡ photoshop¡ photoshop¡ 😉 ;-))
