Adobe makes great graphic design products that are designed to work together beautifully.
Because these products cross multiple design fields (motion graphics, publication design, web design, etc.) the software is designed to be user friendly for the standards of each focus.
This is great if you’re moving from a different film editing program to AfterEffects or from a different image editing program to Photoshop . If you’re familiar with Photoshop and try to take that skill-set into Illustrator or AfterEffects, you’ll find huge changes that make a smooth transition challenging.
Adobe products offer many simple tools and effective filters, etc. but there are many aspects that are morse subtle and require some training and practice. Unlock the power of Adobe Software with one-on-one tutoring or individual lessons designed to address your specific design needs.
If you are interested in creating a unique website that reflects your style, learning skills in Photoshop and Illustrator can help you create exactly the content you need! Commercial designers start creating their websites in Photoshop and then use this content to make their site match their creative ideas.
Creating your website design using Photoshop is an excellent start, but you can also avoid the nightmare of populating your site with stock images. Stock photography is inexpensive and is a fast way to add images to your website, but stock images do not have the same personal touch as your own content. If you want a unique site that draws visitors in, you want to replace as many stock images as possible with your own images.
Adobe Illustrator is also an excellent tool for creating a unique feel for your website. You can create buttons and banners and your logo in software that is designed specifically for this type of work. With some practice, you can also create unique works in illustrator that offer a clean design style that can’t be matched in Photoshop.
AfterEffects software can be used to edit video, but it can also be used to create unique content using materials created in Photoshop or Illustrator.
This software allows multiple lighting and camera effects and can easily replicate a 3-D field with depth.
The video example includes images created in Illustrator, cropped and manipulated in Photoshop, and then imported into AfterEffects.
No matter what your goal, learning to work with design software effectively will give you the freedom to create – from your imagination, straight to the screen.
