In most disciplines, Adobe Photoshop is the defacto standard when it comes to image editing and creation. This mature product has a lot features built-in that have made it the most popular tool for eLearning professionals. However, it can be difficult to keep up with some of the newest features in all the releases. There are filters and features built into Photoshop that a lot of eLearning professionals don't know about.

In this webinar, we will look at some key examples that specifically benefit eLearning professionals. The examples will not only show you how to save time, fix flaws but also how to create stunning 3D images within Adobe Photoshop.

  • Create automatic routines to modify images within a folder
