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® give us an incredible amount of scope to “fine-tune” our photographs and get great prints.
This “Photoshop® for Photographers” course is designed for Adobe Photoshop CC. 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, as well as the images used on the course, so you can practice at home.
To do this course you require your own laptop, pre-loaded with the latest version of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.
