Photoshop Retouching & Enhancing

Class Details

Learn to take your images to the next level with the power of Photoshop! This is the introductory course and will cover the most basic and most useful Photoshop techniques. Photoshop does not have to be complex and daunting - we will be looking at techniques that apply most to digital photographers and amateurs. We will be finding the quickest ways to enhance your images and make them POP! You'll be given an introduction on how to navigate through Photoshop and we'll cover topics like:

  1. How to brighten or darken just certain parts of an image.
  2. How to crop and resize images properly for printing.
  3. How to straighten a crooked image.
  4. How to retouch and smooth skin.
  5. Enhancing eyes and teeth to make portraits "pop".
  6. How to create and save actions to automate tedious tasks.
  7. How to set shortcut keys to speed up workflow.
  8. Understanding layers and masks and how they make your life easier.
  9. Create your very own watermark to add to all of your amazing photos.

We will also be tackling your individual Photoshop questions and providing an overview of all the basic controls. Handouts and sample images to work on will be provided. A USB port for a flash drive or CD-R drive will be required. Techniques covered will be compatible backwards to Photoshop 7. CS3 or higher is recommended. Please bring a fully charged laptop with one of these versions of Photoshop installed. Handouts provided, but note taking is highly encouraged.
