Photoshop is one of the industry-leading image editing software that allows you to design, edit, restore, retouch and manipulate images. Photoshop has the power to completely reinvent how you shoot. This class is geared towards photographers new to Photoshop and to those looking for a good introduction to the software. The course will start at the beginning with an introduction to all that Photoshop has to offer. You’ll learn the basics of the interface and how to make fundamental adjustments to color, contrast and brightness. You’ll learn how to isolate parts of a picture with selection tools and layer masking. And then use the retouching tools you’ll learn how to remove things from scenes or duplicate them. Also, we’ll touch on more creative editing techniques such as creating great black and white images, transforming the feel of a photo, replacing selective colors and even making a composite from multiple images.
