FURTHER PHOTOSHOP CLASS


Following on from the Introduction to Adobe Photoshop, these classes will develop your
understanding of Photoshop by exploring a wide range of techniques for enhancing
photographs and creating composite images, as well as using the power of Photoshop
to create high dynamic range, panoramic and focus stacked images. Each week we will
work step-by-step on an image together so that all the techniques can be discussed
and practised during the class. If you have a laptop with a recent edition of Photoshop
installed, bring it along to the class.
