Overview: The purpose of this Adobe Photoshop training course is to get you acquainted with the basics of Photoshop and to rapidly familiarize you with all the possibilities of the software. This course will also train you to use Photoshop regularly in the workplace and/or help you develop a competitive portfolio. Students will learn to use Photoshop for sizing, image editing, and color correction. Participants will also explore creative effects with layers, brushes, and other tools.

Discussion:

  • How to prepare for web vs. print.

  • Learn to use brush tools for painting and retouching.
  • Understand basic color correction principles and techniques.
  • Use the Layers panel for adjustments, clipping, and special effects.

The 16-hour class covers many basics of Photoshop. This course description, however, is for the 40-hour class. In order to cover ALL of this curriculum, the 40-hour class needs to be taken, especially since our students get to participate using Photoshop.
