On November 21st, lecturer, Quan Yilin continued to conduct basic Photoshop course, Introductory Photo Adjustment and Beautification Training Courses to students in computer room 455. For this lesson, he personally demonstrated the process of adjusting and beautifying pictures for Photoshop beginners, including picture size, color adjustment, and tilted images correction to improve the rendering effect of pictures. The use of Photoshop helps to switch the color and size of images and also can be used for Web design, multimedia and other fields. The beginners followed the pace of the lecturer, skillfully combine traditional art skills with filter functions, and integrate creativity into images, so as to make the adjustment and beautification of images seamless. When encountering difficulties, the lecturer encouraged the students: "When using Photoshop, you must not be afraid of difficulties. Don't be frightened by a variety of tools. You should know that a journey of thousands of miles begins with a single step. As long as you persevere, step by step, you will become a master of Photoshop."

1121日晚6点,学生讲师权毅霖继续在455机房为学员们带来入门图片调整和美化培训课程。在这节课中,权毅霖为零基础Ps爱好者亲身演示图片的调整和美化过程,包括图片大小的更改、倾斜图像的校正和图像的色彩调整等,帮助提升图片的呈现效果。使用Ps有助于方便快捷地对图像的颜色、大小进行切换以满足图像在网页设计、多媒体等各领域的应用,学员们紧跟讲师的步伐,将传统美术技巧与滤镜功能巧妙结合,把创意融入外来图像,争取让图像的调整和美化天衣无缝。遇到困难时,学生讲师权毅霖鼓励学员们:“使用Ps时千万不能有畏难情绪,不要被繁多的工具吓到,要知道千里之行,始于足下,只要坚持不懈、循序渐进,学着学着,一不小心就成了Ps高手。

Quan Yilin, the student lecturer, used English to explain throughout the course. These two courses vividly portray the various ways and means of Photoshop-ing/editing pictures. As he said, "Photoshop has a powerful image editing function. There is no fixed way to edit a picture. Otherwise, it is very difficult to edit pictures perfectly. When dealing with another picture, we encounter problems that we did not encounter before, so we need to constantly practice and explore new ways of doing it. "The way" in the process of learning, he encouraged the students to learn all kinds of Photoshop tools, constantly try and explore, and strive to learn more.

学生讲师权毅霖全程采用英文讲解的形式,两次课程生动传达了Photoshop处理图片时的多种途径和方式。正如讲师讲解时所说,“Photoshop拥有强大的图像处理功能,不能只局限于一种固定的方法来处理图片,否则是很难把图片处理完美的,而且在处理另一张图片的时候碰到以前没遇见的问题,就需要我们去不断地实践和探索新的方式。”在学习过程中,讲师鼓励学员们全面学习Photoshop的各种工具,不断地尝试、探索,争取学得更深入。

After the course, a few students gave feedbacks, “Before this, I used to learn Photoshop in online courses. Many important steps of Photoshop were not explained properly by the online courses. Usually, the instructors have limited knowledge on the subject and questions were not answered immediately. Now, since the library has this course, it is instructed by a professional, easy to follow step-by-step, and the course content is particularly detailed. It helps us to fully learn the skills and experience.” The students who came to the lecture expressed their expectation and anticipation for the next Photoshop course by the library.

课后有同学反馈,“之前都是通过网络上零散的教程进行Photoshop的学习,网络上很多关键步骤没有详细的解释和说明,通常一知半解,自己在操作中产生的疑问也没有人能及时解答。现在,在图书馆跟随着专业前辈的脚步,一步步学习,课程内容特别的详细,这次课程让我收获了满满的技巧和经验。”前来听课的同学纷纷表示对图书馆举办的下一场Photoshop课程充满了期待。
