Today we had a very brief introduction into photoshop and illustrator. On Photoshop we first looked at creating shapes and using layers. Although i knew how to do this, i’m glad I attended because basic things like naming layers, I always forget to do, so this was a prompt for me.
Also on Photoshop we looked at creating shapes and changing the layer styles of the shape, which was all new to me. This was done by creating two rectangular shapes, holding the ‘shift’ key so that they merge together. And removing a section by using the ‘at’ key. Afterwards i then right clicked on the layer and a menu came up. Here i could add a shadow, emboss or give the shape texture. And many more different layer styles.
