As more and more photographers switch to the Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) Photography plan, which includes both Photoshop and Lightroom in a single monthly subscription, we are adapting our Photoshop class to teach from the CC platform. While remaining an introductory course, the class will now explore the wider array of tools and functions available to help you take your photos to new heights!

This course provides a complete introduction to help you digitally edit your photos. Explanations and demonstrations will be made using Photoshop CC software, with support for those using Photoshop Elements. The non-technical presentations will help you learn fundamental skills of photo editing. Learn how to improve any photo, save a problem photo and turn a good photo into a prize winner.

Some of the subjects which will be covered include:

  • Using Adobe Bridge to sort and organize your photos
  • Using the Camera RAW Editor - for both RAW and JPG files
  • Balancing Exposure and Color
  • Layers, Layer Masks and Blend Modes
  • Editing a portion of your image with Selections
  • Cropping and sizing your image
  • Adding and removing portions of your image
  • Combining and merging photos
  • Retouching for professional-looking results
  • Editing Tips and Tricks

  • And much more!

Techniques described are intended to be simple, quick, and easy. Some experience with digital photo editing would be helpful, but is not necessary. Familiarity with basic computer skills will significantly enhance your ability to learn. This course is targeted for novice to intermediate-level students..

The fee for this course is $175.

Classes will be held on 10 consecutive Wednesdays,
starting April 6, 2022

Time: 7:30 to 10:00 PM.
