Introduction to Adobe Photoshop

Duration: Weekend course
Dates: Sat 31 Aug 12:00 - Sun 1 Sep 2024 17:00
Location: Digital Suite

Photoshop is made easy in this weekend course.

Using our computers (or your own laptop if you prefer) you will use the most well known photo-editing software, Adobe Photoshop, to adjust and improve your images.  

You will learn how to use the programme tools, menus, and functions, to colour correct, adjust tone, clone and remove small objects, add text, understand and use layers and selections. Photoshop can also be used for drawing and painting in a digital workspace.

Enjoyed the class, felt everything was covered and more. Would recommend.

Highly informative. Good pace of teaching. Clear and full of insight. Thank you!
