Curso Photoshop | Cap: 1 | Primeros pasos

welcome to chapter 1 of the series where I want you to familiarize yourself with the use of photoshop after the resounding success I have had in the channel with the video editing course with final cut pro 10 You have asked me to record this series to help you with photoshop so here You have it, come on, you can applaud by the way if someone hasn't seen the course today or you have not heard about that final cut pro 10 course that we have seen in the channel up here a card will now appear so you can do click on it to see it photoshop is such an extremely large application that we it would take years to be able to teach you everything that allows us to do so I have decided to show you the most used characteristics and that will help you in the day by day with the editing of your photos but in a practical way so Let's start and in today's chapter we are going to see some first steps that will help familiarize ourselves with the interface for this we will go to photoshop by clicking on the icon that we have deposited in our dock and finally opens this graphical interface quite simple apparently but that hides a lot of options that is why I told you that it would take us a lot a lot of time and dedicate hundreds and hundreds of chapters to teach you everything that's why we're going to go little by little and today I'm going to show you the inter graphic well first of all this black space that we have here in the center is the work area this is where we will load our photographs and where we will work with them for example so you can see it we are going to give file the menu bar that we have up here and we are going to choose open I have deposited here in my folder of images a photograph of test called landscape which we are going to open by pressing the open key we will always say ok in this pop-up menu that appears and here we have a wonderful landscape loaded and already available to be able to work on it The first thing that jumps out when we open our photoshop well it is In the menu on the left we have here a bar with tools which selecting any of them will allow us or will act differently form on the image for example if I want to select something that allows me draw on the image could select this brush if you leave the mouse placed two seconds above the brush tool appears and between parentheses puts us see that letter be means that if I press directly my keyboard the letter b the selection as it happens with the rest of letters if, for example, I want to make a gradient on it the gradient is the letter g, you can see it there if I select the letter g with my keyboard I select the gradient well we are going to go to the letter be for example to select the brush and now well we have this little circle that is the size the thickness of our brush that will allow us with the color we have selected in this space that exactly matches this colors that we have here with this palette if I start to draw well then as You see I am drawing directly on the layer that I have selected and I do not scare you with this palettes of with this of layers that we are going to see everything without no complication in later chapters this is simply so know that these are the tools you can go by passing the mouse over so that each one of them is an idea what it is about as you see all the tools have a triangle in this corner means there are more options if we keep the click we make a sustained click on them you see within the brush tool we have the color replacement pencil brush mixer brush if for example I am going to gradient and keep doing a sustained click appear to us good as degraded paint voice tool material color well, we will see all this Above all, we will see the most important ones and those that will help us directly in our diary and by the way I'm going to teach you a little trick a keyboard shortcut to access the options that are hidden within the option that you have selected for example in the brush tool we have exactly four options within this menu, well if you keep pressed the capital key and now you press the letter be that is the one of the brush you go giving touches bbb baby you go selecting the four options hidden in loop mode when it finishes it starts over within that option good to tell you that the toolbars can be moved and you you can condition and deposit in the part of the screen that best suits you always clicking on these lines that they have above if you click on this arrow means that it is going to unfold so that there are two columns and if you click it again, it will be put back if I by chance close the toolbar and type is gone now as i take it out good Well, for that we have the menu bar above in this upper area and if we we move to where it puts window in window we go down to the lower area and here we have the tools you see all the ones that have a tick It means that they are showing themselves with which if I want to show the tools I click on it again and they reappear we are going to leave this as it was before look at me I can leave this on a line and now scrolling with these ominous lines I release it and deposit it and then leave it in your place we go with the upper area on the bar of menus as I have explained to you we have everything related to working well well with the file as in any program to save export in some different format and others in the editing file we can do a lot of things that we will already see everything also referring to cut copy paste step back undo finally in image we have everything related to an image from modifying its size the tones modifying the size of the canvas that cut duplicate the image do a lot of things we will see it not you worry about the layer menu we have everything related to the layers that specifically the layers is what we have here do not panic because we will see it in a later chapter for now that you know that everything what refers to the elements that we have deposited in this list that right now there is only one but there may be 10 or 20 or 100 is what refers to the layers the text menu well, it is all that concerns text because of course we can write on top of any photograph always with this option that we have here in our tools, which is the letter of this that you see here if I press the letter t I already have the text selected well in the selection menu we can view somehow the object we have selected for example with our Selection tool for example for this blue sky of the good photography because put it in another color or give it a darker blue tone or more grayish that had to be done with a good selection because here is the menu that concerns the filter menu this one loves this one you ask me a lot about it in the filter menu we have all the things that can be applied a photography from pixelated artistic filters renderings to good because from approaches approaches distortions put noise to the photo or in a lot of let's say artistic appearances or to simulate certain textures or give the photo a different look we will see it not you worry in the 3d menu we have everything that concerns what is related to 3-d layers and others that I think we will not see because this requires some difficulty and I don't think you use much in your life daily in the view menu we have everything related to the visualization of our application for example if I want to show a grid so that somehow keep me horizontal or vertical well Well, I'm going to show you a grid and it appears to me this is good, this if I don't explained if you want to zoom in on the image simply by pinching your mouse your trackpad yes 6 with a mac or your normal mouse yes you are with a windows pc you just scroll like when you surf the internet and you will see that the image increases or decreases well this of the grid is to maintain above all and as I tell you the horizontality and the verticality well I'm going to remove it because I don't feel like having the grid activated and well we'll see all the options it includes this view menu and in the window menu we have as I told you everything that what is marked with a tick will be displayed in our interface and by Last the menu helps as always to be able to search on a topic and the application search information on the internet under our toolbar upper menus we have a bar with options that changes according to the tool that we have selected, for example I have now I selected the text tool which allows me to choose the font in the hit choose if I want the letter in bold that would be in bold in ultra light in italics the size of the font with which I would write inside the text and a series of options because as a paragraph method the color that I am using or apply good effects to it because turning it to give it a circular or oval effect is say we have different effects but if for example you select our brush tool pressing life as we have seen the letter be has changed the options that offer us to do like this is a good brush because here what we can do is select the thickness of the brush or choose one with a motif for example different reason we can also select the opacity that we want him to paint this brush for example I have selected now myself the brush to paint me with a thickness of one pixel a pixel is nothing You are hardly going to see it, see if I want to make a brush a little more fat man, can I go directly to this menu increase the size in this way you can also do it by placing the mouse Above where it puts size and look at this is a facility that offers us photoshop simply by sliding our mouse clicking over here where it says eye size that it is not necessary to scroll to this of this little triangle but above size directly something like that and select a fatter brush well this is simply that now I paint on top painting with an opacity of one hundred percent you see it totally opaque if by Example I want to lower the opacity to 50% because now I paint a little line next to it and you see, let the image pass, let's say it is a bit translucent, this is the well opacity we will see all this of course do not worry and to finish I want to talk about the menu that we have here on the right in the area superior we have this that puts essential aspects this let's say that is the Look at the interface aspect and select the essential one that I I have set right now if you selected that I want the paint look good then all good suits well now to the offer of which brush to use It puts the colors here in case I want to select them directly if I I want for example a look for good photography because they appear here the histogram colors and well, everything that concerns editing a photograph I also have fonts for example and I will edit with a text if I am for example creating a title for a logo or something so good because it already offers me here by hand all the options that concern the text If I want to reconfigure it as I had it, I simply select and I go back to essential aspects if we continue going down we find our color palette which we can select one from the most grayish to the most saturated or with a more vivid color and in the menu of the right I can move and also select the color gamut by example greens and I go to a fluorescent green if you see the color that I I have selected here exactly matches the one I am selecting on the foreground color below I can also do click here and the color palette opens but in another way simply We put the rgb coding in case I want to put this color points in this numbering and it will always be this here you have the srgb numbering as you can see Well, you can simply move calmly and select the color that you also want to tell you that we have colored eyelashes, we can move on to samples here we already have samples predefined and I can also move from swatches here to the beginning or color Here at the beginning this is worth what I want you to know now is that this is you can modify or put it in a visual way that you like inside from the settings menu we have all these options we have the layers menu below the Channels menu and menu layouts good especially the layered menu which is the most important for editing what we are going to use the most here what we have is the history menu which has been recording all the steps that we have gone giving this would be like the black box of an airplane all that we have gone doing is recorded in this history menu well just if I want go to step 1 select the landscape this is the first thing I did if I want to go at the end of all I select the last one and all these steps of the pencils that we have been adding look here I had only one here this here the three good down here we have the properties menu that right now is It will find it empty but it will be filled with options that we can go doing and finally we go with the lower zone selecting the little tab of layers we have here below the options that refer to the use of the layers for example create a new layer simply giving this key if I want delete it because I am not here a z command as in any app command z let's say it's delete the last thing you did a undo if I add it again and I don't want it, I can also click it drag to the trash this that you see down here is and I drop it from this way I can delete it, look here we have the option to create groups here We have the option to create a new fill or adjustments layer and here we have the Layer masks we will see all this in later chapters.

worry here we have the layer style and here we have to link layers that We will see all this and to finish here on the left of everything we are saying we are working with a document at 75% zoom if I pinch my trackpad you see that this goes decreasing and here they mark us zoom that we are using and here it informs us the size that this document would occupy right now if I save it to save this file we would simply go to file we would save as we would choose a site for example within images and I'm going to put up here retouched landscape is telling us to choose a format for example the jpg I am going to tell you to save it in photoshop format which is the format in which our projects will be saved The termination will always be psd and when you click to save it is telling us that it is going to occupy 2.15 megabytes if you want to check them we simply go to finder 'we go to our images we go to our landscape retouched psd and here you have it, you see it, we've already saved it 21 megabytes, now I could go out quietly closing from this little eyelash that is the image that we are working on retouched landscapes could come out would close this image our photos app or stays open and if I click on the file that I have saved of retouched landscape is loaded again as as we had left it to be able to continue editing that is to say me right now here I could paint in green and be able to do everything is saved our good work this first chapter is a little longer because I wanted to tell you about the interface so that you know where all the things do not miss the rest of the chapters that are going to be short and you I am going to teach simple functions so that you can practice, come all that that you are happy or happy for the beginning of this photoshop course that leave a hand above you can leave me comments with your requests doubts with everything you want to tell me and above all subscribe to the channel If it is the first time you see me and you are liking a greeting see you later
