TUTORIAL 01: PHOTOSHOP VARIABLES & DATA SETS

Tutorial 01
PROGRAM REQUISITES: PHOTOSHOP 7 (OR LATER), BASIC TEXT EDITOR (LIKE NOTEPAD OR NOTEPAD++)

PROGRAM SUGGESTIONS: SPREADSHEET EDITOR (LIKE MICROSOFT EXCEL OR OPENOFFICE CALC)

ENGAGING TUTORIAL MANUAL: THE ENGAGING TUTORIAL DIRECTIONS WERE DESIGNED FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO LEARN IDEAS BEST WHILE ACTIVELY ENGAGING IN THE SUBJECT MATTER, OR AFTER THEY HAVE ENGAGED WITH IT. THIS MANUAL CONTAINS VERY SPECIFIC STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS ONLY; IT WITHHOLDS THE REASONS AND IDEAS BEHIND THESE STEPS. IF YOU ARE CONCERNED WITH LEARNING THE SPECIFIC PROCESS BEHIND THE SUBJECT MATTER, USE THIS MANUAL.

INTUITIVE TUTORIAL MANUAL: THE INTUITIVE TUTORIAL DIRECTIONS WERE DESIGNED FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO LEARN THROUGH INTUITION AND THINKING THINGS OUT BEFORE ACTING. THIS MANUAL CONTAINS LOOSE STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS, ACCOMPANIED WITH DETAILS THAT SUPPORT THE REASONS AND IDEAS BEHIND THE STEPS. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE BROADER PERSPECTIVE (AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE SUBJECT MATTER YOU CAN APPLY TO OTHER DESIGN PROJECTS), USE THIS MANUAL.

TARGET LEARNERS: THIS TUTORIAL WAS DESIGNED FOR PHOTOSHOP USERS SEEKING AN EASY, TIME-EFFICIENT WAY TO EDIT AND CHANGE THE CONTENT (ELEMENTS/DATA) USED IN A CARD DESIGN TEMPLATE. INDIVIDUALS NEEDING TO CHANGE THE CONTENTS OF A .PSD CARD TEMPLATE (TEXT, ICONS, ARTWORK, ETC.) TO CREATE A SET OF CARDS WILL FIND THIS TUTORIAL EXTREMELY BENEFICIAL TO THEIR WORKFLOW PROCESS. ANYONE CURIOUS OF HOW TO USE PHOTOSHOP’S VARIABLE AND DATA SET OPTIONS WILL ALSO SEE VALUE IN THIS TUTORIAL.

EXPECTATIONS: THIS TUTORIAL DOES NOT COVER METHODS OF GRAPHIC CREATION OR ORGANIZATION WITHIN PHOTOSHOP. A SAMPLE PHOTOSHOP CARD TEMPLATE WITH PRE-DESIGNED TEXT, ICONS, AND ARTWORK IS PROVIDED AS AN EXAMPLE FOR LEARNERS TO REFER TO AND INTERACT WITH THROUGHOUT THE STEPS OF THIS TUTORIAL.
