INTRODUCTION TO ADOBE PHOTOSHOP®
TUTOR: PAUL SHADBOLT
A two-day Introduction to Adobe Photoshop.
This course will introduce the beginner to Adobe’s Photoshop software and its features, and will be of particular interest to digital photographers wanting to edit their images post-photography and prepare them for print.
The course will run for two consecutive days over a weekend and will show you how to get around Photoshop’s workspace, change the size and quality of an image, work with layers, filters, effects and combine images, how to make selections, retouch an image and edit your own photos.
The course will deliver presentations demonstrating the features and various techniques of Photoshop, as well as setting practical hands-on tasks and small projects that will be supervised by your tutor in class.
The demonstrations, daily tasks and small projects will cumulate into a final project on the last day where you will be able to utilise your new skills to manipulate and edit an image suitable for high quality print.
At the completion of the course, the students will have a strong understanding of the potential of Adobe’s Photoshop that will allow them to create their own work as well as setting a solid foundation for further self-directed learning.
Note: You do NOT need to bring your computer/laptop to this class.
Please ensure you enrol with a valid email address. Course material and hand-outs will be provided to students during the course.
