Each version of Photoshop comes with new features that let you work faster and more efficiently. Unfortunately, old editing habits can be hard to break.

In this webcast session you'll learn:

  • When to use adjustment layers in place of pixel-based or duplicate layers
  • When to use Shape tools and vector masks in place of selection marquees and pixel-based masks
  • How to use Smart Objects for repeating elements, and more.

By the end of this webcast session, you'll be working much smarter instead of harder!
