About this video

Photoshop supports web design projects with excellent tools. As a web designer, you need to work with modern and practical features to make your websites look fresh, vibrant, and stunning. You'll want to utilize Photoshop to achieve graphics and designs that stand out, but there are many lesser-known tools and features you can also take advantage of.

In this course, we'll delve into key elements for modern web design. We'll focus on building a responsive design and uncover tips and tricks for implementing different UI elements. You'll learn to use image modification features to quickly optimize your images.

You'll build custom templates and work with external libraries such as HTML Block, CSS3Ps, and Fontea; add objects (embedding/linking) and navigation elements; use UI mock-ups and prototyping (including creating reusable UI elements); and learn how important wireframes are as you build your projects.

As a key added-value benefit, you'll explore different tools to help you automate your web design workflow. By the end of the course, you will be confident about using your Photoshop skills for web design and will be able to consider forging a career as a Photoshop web designer.
