Learn the basics of Photoshop Elements, a simple yet powerful tool for editing, enhancing, and sharing photos.
This is a collection of Photoshop projects that teach the basic skills. There are 14 different projects which are more complex as the year progresses. Depending on the abilities of the students and how often the class meets, this can be used for a very intense semester or a more practical year.
This is a video tutorial of some basic, everyday functions of Photoshop. In courses where students are required to use Photoshop and need a fast introduction to get them up and running quickly, this could help facilitate that goal.
These tutorials are a set of lesson notes for a Creative Digital Media course - beginners Photoshop - that I have been running at Sidcot School. I apologise therefore that they are specific to that situation, and very Mac - centric, as it is Macbookpro's that we are working on, but Photoshop works pretty much the same on PC's as on Apple computers. Each week I have taken a different tool to look at in detail.
This short introductory course aims to meet the needs of educators wishing to get started with Digital Imaging using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
I do this with my students every year and get good results. I select 8 photos- some stock, some that I have taken, and have the students create a photo using 5 of the photos. This is a culminating project where students are expected to use all of the Photoshop skills that they have used during the year. I insist that students make at least three different versions and save them using Layer Comps. I have the students turn-in .psd files which I check for the layer comps, layers, etc. The download contains instructions, rubrica list of vocabulary that students are expected to know, and several of the excellent Adobe .pdf "how to" files.

This lesson teaches you how to use the Timeline function in Photoshop CS6 (the Animation Panel in Photoshop Extended CS5) to create an animation. It’s FUN! You load the drawings you’ve created for your animation into layers, load them into the Timeline and voila! An animation. It works well all on its own as a simple tool for creating animations or as a quick way to check your drawings for more complex animations. Explore and enjoy! THIS is empowering. My students are studying animation very specifically but - you could be creating an animation for virtually any subject. That is what makes this such a 21st century tool. It allows you to bring media literacy, digital literacy and visual literacy and storytelling into your classroom.
This BINGO chart can be used with ANY design project in Photoshop! It's intended as a cumulative review project, at the end of a course. The card encourages students to try a variety of different techniques as they complete their project, and it's a great way to review all the techniques you've learned throughout your course. I tell students to use at least 5 effects from the card, and give them extra credit if they can manage to get their effects to line up for a BINGO.
