Essential Photoshop (6 weeks)

Who should take this class?

Photographers and other visual artists, as well as weekend shooters and people who want to know how to "photoshop" their faces onto their friends' faces.  Without a doubt, Photoshop is the gold standard app for graphics and photography professionals, and used by countless artists, businesses, and groups that operate in every known activity.


What you will learn

As a photographer, you'll need to be able to sort through the many features that will help make your photos better, without getting bogged down by the less relevant stuff.  We've custom-designed this course to provide a practical guide to Photoshop that's specifically engineered for photographers.

Move beyond the filters panel and learn everything from making basic tonal adjustments to creating surreal multi-layer imagery.   Try your hand at retouching for portraits and fashion.  Discover how to make selections, create masks and use advanced compositing techniques to not only improve photographs, but to turn them into entirely new images. 


What to bring

Students can bring their own laptops, or rent an iMac or MacBook Air for in-class use.   Please arrive with Lightroom installed if using your own laptop.  If using our in-class computers, please bring a USB external hard drive or flash drive.  If you have questions about technical requirements, feel free to ask!
