Part of your final exam grade will be the certification in Photoshop. You will need to diligently work on the tutorials on the ACA Test Prep in order to prepare for the certification. Ferrell will be routinely checking on the tutorial work.
It is critical that while you are watching the tutorials that you are also practice what is being said actually in Photoshop. I do not trust memory, I trust action. You can do something if you have already done it. Just because you saw James Bond skydiving on the back of an elephant who lands on four skateboards to leap through a giant ring of fire doesn't mean you can.
In addition make sure your book is read. I will expect a book report by next Friday. The details of the book report will be posted soon.
Your first two tutorials are due Wednesday the 18th. Good Luck.
