Default learning system for textile design using adobe photoshop

The book " Adobe Photoshop for Textile Design " is a learning
system that teaches how to use Adobe Photoshop to create textile
designs. It's designed as a step by step system so the student is not
overwhelmed and the more experienced Photoshop user can grasp Photoshop
and textile design concepts and be up and running quickly.
Adobe Photoshop for Textile Design was designed so you can learn at
your own pace and refer back to the lessons easily. Photoshop for
textile design was created by an experienced artist for artists and
every effort was made to simplify complex tasks so that they are easy
to absorb.
The CD that's included with the book is an essential part of the
learning system. The practice images on the CD correspond directly to
the lessons in the book. These include weaves, textile images to color
reduce and bodies & objects to photo drape textiles on. It also
contains 36 pages of color charts so that you can match colors
"Adobe Photoshop for Textile Design" Covers the following subjects:
Selection and Fill Tools (basic textile settings), Filling with a solid
color, Color reducing a textile design in PhotoShop, Forced color
reduction using the Marquee tool, Coloring your textile design,
Cleaning a textile design, Editing a design (Copy, Cut and Paste),
Square and Half/drop Repeats, Creating a plaid, Mini bodies (placing a
textile design into a fashion sketch), Color reduction of a tonal
design, Basic Photo draping, How to use the color charts included on
the CD, Creating layers with various tools, Adjusting and Tinting
layers, Matching colors to a color chart (a must for color accuracy in
designing textiles), Pulling colors within a layer, Using Color Range
to select a mask, Reducing a layered design down to indexed color
(advanced watercolor technique & color reduction of a textile design),
Photo Draping using the warp tool, Using Bicubic Interpolation to
resample an image (resizing an image), A note about pixels per inch,
Placing colors on the Color Table in the order you want, Trapping and
Platforming and Fall-ons (oh my!) in textiles
