Photoshop CS6: Editing Video

via LinkedIn Learning


Guides you through the brand-new video workflow in Photoshop, from building a sequence to working with audio and exporting your video in a variety of high-quality formats.

With the release of Photoshop CS6, Adobe introduced the ability to edit video footage. Author Rich Harrington guides you through this brand-new workflow, from building a sequence to working with audio and exporting your video in a variety of high-quality formats. The course also covers how Photoshop's strongest feature, its image enhancement toolset, translates to video, from fixing under- or overexposed footage, performing color balancing, and adding vibrance and contrast to special effects, such as converting to black and white and using Smart Filters to soften skin.
