Welcome to the world of digital manipulation and editing. Since the advent of digital photography the responsibility for delivering quality prints has moved from the lab to the photographer. Programs like Adobe Photoshop® and Adobe Photoshop® Elements give us an incredible amount of scope to “fine-tune” our photographs and get great prints.
This “Photoshop® for Photographers” course is designed for both Photoshop Elements or CC – please let us know which software you have and we will supply you with the applicable course manual on the first lesson. This part time Photoshop course is presented on one evening or morning a week over five consecutive weeks. You will be given an extensive workbook and a CD containing a trial version of the latest Photoshop® software (if you don’t already have it), as well as the images used on the course so you can practice at home.
To do the course at any of our campuses, you need to have your own laptop, pre-loaded with the latest version of Photoshop Elements, or Photoshop CC.
This “Basic Photoshop – The Essentials” course is also occasionally offered as a condensed course during the SCHOOL HOLIDAYS. This 5 lesson school holiday course will run over a 1 week period on a daily basis.
