Photoshop CS6/CC for 
the Absolute Beginner

Before and after: Photoshop was used to create a different image feel

This slow-paced course is for anyone that has images, digital or traditional, and wants to improve their appearance and impact, but has no idea how to even take the first step towards this goal. Photoshop is the world's most popular and effective photo editing software in use today. This will be a step-by-step course in the basics of PhotoShop. Learn how to upload your images, open them in Photoshop, to resizing, retouching, getting rid of red eye, removing glare from glasses, selective hand tinting on an image, altering from a color image  to a black and white image, sepia toning,  filter applications, color and contrast correction, how to correct backgrounds and change them, how to make collages,  how to straighten crooked images, and much more. The small size of this class will allow the instructor to assist students individually in their images. We will be using Adobe Photoshop CS6/CC in this course, but the applications you learn in this course can be applied to any level of Photoshop. We have a full equipped computer room with PC and a projector, so there is no need to bring your own computer. If you are a Macintosh user and would like to bring your Macintosh laptop please do so.

Some basic knowledge of computers is helpful, but not required

Supplies Needed:
