Using After Effects as a Photoshop Plug-in

Thursday, July 11

2:45 pm - 3:45 pm Washington, DC (UTC-4)

If your client asks for something “new” or “out of the box,” take a look at using After Effects. It works just like Photoshop, and can be used for any design project . . . even still images with no video! This session we’ll explore quick-and-easy techniques to create jaw-dropping graphics for any design project.

In this session we’ll remove colors from a photograph, generate editorial graphics for blogs and social media, create amazing lighting effects within a photo, and generate unique textures — from presentations to repeating backgrounds for web pages. And when we’re done, we can send the project back to Photoshop!

You’ll learn:

  • The After Effects interface
  • How After Effects is similar to Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign
  • How to import photos, videos, and art into your project
  • Applying effects (it’s all about effects!)
  • Creating original artwork and enhancements
  • Forget AI — create your own unique artwork in minutes!
