Creating Motion Graphics with Photoshop

Learn to create exciting, professional motion graphics using the software you already know and love — Photoshop!

Motion graphics are in high-demand today, whether it’s a video ad for the web or an explainer video for a new product, motion graphics are the new go-to tool. While Photoshop’s video editing capabilities are not intended for editing long video, they’re perfect for animating graphics and compositing short works. Photoshop is capable of creating professional content for most of the basic animations needed for short projects and you can get up and running faster using a piece of software you already know and have experience with — you’ll be creating great looking animations in no time with this two-day hands-on training class.

This class is for Photoshop users who want to dip their toes in the motion graphics world without committing to learning Adobe After Effects or Apple Motion.

Students will learn how to produce kinetic text, product demos, animated charts and infographics, branded intros for videos, and animated video ads for web.

Some experience with Photoshop is helpful but not required for class. If you have any questions about which class is right for you, contact us by email, phone or use our contact form.
