Are you struggling to understand PhotoShop well enough to simply adjust or resize your images, or to add text?

Are you an artist who would like to take control by doing your own photography?

Then these introductory classes are perfect for you and will provide just the information that you need without being overwhelming.

PhotoShop Basics

This introductory PhotoShop course will take place on Saturday, Jan.14, from 10 a.m.โ€“4 p.m. Course fee: $90; includes use of studio equipment as needed.

PhotoShop Basics is also designed for those with PhotoShop experience and serves as a great refresher course.

This enormously valuable and fact-filled workshop will cover the general principles of PhotoShop manipulation specific to the needs of artists.

Instruction will focus on image/file formats, image sizing, cropping and image correction.

It will cover accepted practices for submission requirements to juried competitions, publications and newspapers (both online and hardcopy). The preparation of images to be used in promotional materials and website use will also be discussed.

This two-day class will enable you to do exactly that, and more.
