Course Description

Smart Objects in Photoshop are an essential part of creative compositing as they allow for maximum flexibility in your digital workflow. Join Maggie Taylor as she shares her love for and knowledge of Smart Objects in this short but very valuable two-session program. Unleash the power of Smart Objects and experience the freedom of changing your mind on an object’s size, shape, warping, smart filters, and even facial expressions.

Maggie shares step-by-step lessons/demos featuring her favorite techniques with Smart Objects for manipulating layers in a non-destructive fashion. She walks you through her decision-making process while working on several of her images. Participants will be able to download the same files Maggie uses and access recordings of the Zoom sessions to rebuild the images on their own as a teaching tool.

Each group session consists of 90 minutes of insights and demonstrations from Maggie, followed by 30 minutes for questions and answers. Join Maggie for this entertaining and comprehensive presentation on the power of using Adobe Photoshop’s Smart Objects.

Santa Fe Workshops always aims to produce a high-quality experience for our online attendees. That said, variables including regional and local internet provider speeds, traffic on Zoom's servers, and your own computing hardware can contribute to a less than ideal streaming event. While we do our best to minimize the impact of these variables, they are outside the control of Santa Fe Workshops.

For the convenience of participants, recordings of each class session are posted privately for two weeks after the end of each session. Santa Fe Workshops takes the recordings down after two weeks to protect the intellectual property of our instructors.
