Photoshop is one of the industry-leading image editing software that allows you to design, edit, restore, retouch and manipulate images. This class is geared towards photographers new to Photoshop, as well as those looking for a good introduction to the software. You will learn the basics of the interface and how to make fundamental adjustments to color, contrast and brightness, how to isolate parts of a picture with selection tools and layer masking, and use the retouching tools 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. This class is for ages 18+. Students are welcome to bring their own laptops, but not required.
