Hi, there. This is Geoff Blake and I want to welcome you to Adobe Photoshop CS6. You know I have to say on a personal level I'm really excited about what Adobe's done with Photoshop for this latest release CS6. This is really I would say one of the biggest releases of Photoshop, at least the biggest that I can remember. And there's so many great new features and so many great new techniques and tricks to show you, I'm really excited to delve into all this with you. Now let me give you an idea, let me give you a run through of some of the different things that we're going to cover together over the course of the next 8 hours or so. Right off the bat I want to show you the new darkened Photoshop CS6 interface. It's a little bit jarring at first but I think you'll come to love it. This new, darkened interface. And then after that I want to continue on that theme of working inside the Photoshop interface. Getting comfortable within Photoshop, getting comfortable navigating your images, zooming and getting around and working with your images. And I have a whole pile of productivity techniques that I want to bounce off of you as well. After that we're going to delve into resolution and resizing and I want to make sure that you understand the difference between DPI, PPI and LPI. We'll talk about resizing of course as I say, resampling which could be a tricky subject and also cropping and you'll see Photoshop CS6's New Crop Tool by the way. We'll also work with selections in great detail as well as layers. You're going to get really good at creating selections and working with Photoshop layers as well. From there we're going to get into some masking techniques including Photoshop's Quick Mask Mode and also Layer Masks, Clipping Groups, all kinds of great stuff in there. We're going to talk about retouching photographs inside Photoshop and we're also going to work with Color Modes and we're going to delve into Color Correction as well. You're going to get introduced to Color Correction and then I'm going to show you some advanced Color Correction techniques as well as non-destructive Color Correction techniques. Once we get through all that it's all about filters and special effects. You're going to see how to apply filters and special effects to your images. I want to show you how to apply effects non-destructively to your images and I also want to introduce you to Photoshop CS6's new set of Blur Effects. Really, really cool stuff. So I hope you're excited. I hope you're ready to go. Let's dig into it. Here it is, Adobe Photoshop CS6.
