Using Blending Options in Photoshop & Flexi for Creative Design

Both Photoshop & Flexi can use a feature called Blending Modes. You may have worked with Blending Modes in the past, and it was probably more of an experimental process. This presentation aims to show you exactly how each Blend Mode works to avoid having to experiment as much. By the time you finish watching this presentation you should understand how Blending Modes work and which to use to get your desired effect. We will use both Photoshop & FlexiSIGN to demonstrate how to use these amazing options to create designs for wide format printing.

The Power of Templates in Design & Production
Templates are a great way to save time in the design of applications but can also minimize errors in print production as well. In this seminar we will show you how to use templates for design and then show the way to set up templates in any RIP & Print software to save time and limit print errors. We will use various design and Rip software to show you how the principles of using templates can be applied in any workflow.
