Creating and Editing Symbols
Symbols are reusable assets that are stored in your Library panel. Learning how to work with symbols is an essential step to creating any animation or interactivity. The movie clip, graphic and button symbols are three types of symbols that you will be creating and using often for special effects, animation and interactivity.

Enhancing Audio with Adobe Audition
Before you can use Audition, you need to configure your computer and audio system to work with the program. This lesson covers audio interfacing for Mac and Windows computers.
The Audition Environment
You can create custom workspaces with particular selections of windows and window arrangements, as well as choose various ways to navigate through Audition’s Waveform Editor and Multitrack Editor.
Audition makes it easy to cut, paste, copy, trim, fade, and perform other processes on audio files. Learn how to zoom in to make extremely precise edits, while seeing a zoomed-out version in the overview window at the top.
Learn to use the signal processors to “sweeten” the audio in multiple ways: fix tonal balance, alter dynamics and add ambience or special effects, and much more. Draw from the extensive collection of effects included in Audition, or use third-party plug-in processors.
Audition offers tools for reducing hiss, hum, clicks, pops and other types of noise. Learn to remove undesired artifacts by defining sections to be removed based on amplitude, time and frequency.
Mastering is the stage between mixing and distribution. By tasteful application of EQ, dynamics, waveform editing, widening, and other techniques learn how to shape a piece of music into a refined audio experience that’s ready for distribution or posting online.
With Audition’s array of signal processors, learn to modify common, everyday sounds into something completely different like transforming a wall fan into a spaceship’s engine room or a running faucet into crickets at night.
Creating and Recording Files
Not only can you record audio into Audition’s Waveform Editor or Multitrack Editor, you can also extract audio from standard Red Book Compact Discs or drag files from the desktop directly into either Audition Editor.
Multitrack Editor Orientation
Learn how to use the Multitrack Editor to assemble clips, add effects, change levels and panning, and create buses for routing tracks to various effects.
The Multitrack Mixer View
Learn to use Mixer view which is optimized for mixing rather than editing the multitrack project’s tracks.
Learn to apply a variety of operations to individual clips, including combining them with crossfading to create a perfect DJ-style continuous mix of music. Also learn to bounce the mix to a single file suitable for exporting, burning to CD, uploading to the web, and so on.
Creating Music with Sound Libraries
Using commercially available sound libraries and Audition’s Multitrack Editor, Learn to create music easily for commercials and audio for video, kiosks and other applications.
Recording in the Multitrack Editor
In addition to simply recording into a track in the Multitrack Editor, Learn to punch over mistakes and assemble multiple takes into an idealized and composite take.
Audition can remember parameter changes you make in a Multitrack Session and store those changes as part of the Session file. Whether those changes are performed in real time as control movements or created and edited in non-real time. Learn how these automation processes apply to individual clips or complete tracks.
Creating a mix is an art and a science. Audition’s Mixer view combined with automation, long-throw faders, the ability to detach the mixer and “float” it on another monitor and various other crucial tools help create the mix. Learn to save it in a variety of file formats (including MP3 for uploading to the web), as well as burn an audio CD of the final stereo mix.
Scoring Audio to Video
Learn how Audition can load video preview files; when composing soundtracks or adding dialogue, the video window provides a crucially important reference.
Website Design with Photoshop CC
Getting to Know the Work Area
As you work with Adobe Photoshop, you will discover that you can often accomplish the same task in several ways. To make the best use of the extensive editing capabilities in Photoshop, you must first learn to navigate the work area.
Basic Photo Corrections
Adobe Photoshop includes a variety of tools and commands for improving the quality of a photographic image. This lesson steps you through the process of acquiring, resizing and retouching a vintage photograph.
Working with Selections
Learning how to select areas of an image is of primary importance you must first select what you want to affect. Once you have made a selection, only the area within the selection can be edited.
Adobe Photoshop lets you isolate different parts of an image on layers. Each layer can then be edited as discrete artwork, allowing tremendous flexibility in composing and revising an image.
Correcting and Enhancing Digital Photographs
Whether you have a collection of digital images amassed for clients or projects, or a personal collection that you want to refine, archive, and preserve for posterity, Photoshop has an array of tools for importing, editing, and archiving digital photographs.
Masks and Channels
Use masks to isolate and manipulate specific parts of an image. The cutout portion of a mask can be altered, but the area surrounding the cutout is protected from change. You can create a temporary mask to use once, or you can save masks for repeated use.
Photoshop provides powerful, flexible text tools so you can add type to your images with great control and creativity.
Vector Drawing Techniques
Unlike bitmap images, vector images retain their crisp edges when you enlarge them to any size. Learn how to draw vector shapes and paths in your Photoshop images and add vector masks to control what is shown in an image.
Filters can transform ordinary images into extraordinary digital artwork. Smart Filters let you edit those transformations. Photoshop includes many features to help you vary the look of your artwork. With actions, you can perform repetitive tasks quickly so you can spend more time working creatively.
You can edit video files in Photoshop using many of the same effects you use to edit image files. You can create a movie from video files, still images, Smart Objects, audio files, and type layers. You will also discover how to apply transitions and animate effects using keyframes.
Painting with the Mixer Brush
The Mixer Brush tool gives you flexibility, color-mixing abilities, and brush strokes as if you were painting on a physical canvas.
Working with 3D Images
Traditional 3D artists spend hours, days, and weeks creating photo-realistic images. The 3D capabilities in Photoshop let you create sophisticated, precise 3D images easily and you can change them easily, too.
Preparing Files for the Web
Web users expect to click linked graphics to jump to another site or page, and to activate built-in animations. You will learn to prepare a file for the web in Photoshop by adding slices to link to other pages or sites.
Producing and Printing Consistent Color
In this lesson you will learn to produce consistent color and define the color space in which to edit and display RGB images, and the color space in which to edit, display, and print CMYK images. This helps ensure a close match between onscreen and printed colors.
