Discuss this workshop

Learn Photoshop with our professional photographers.

Finally, a series of Photoshop workshops for the rest of us!

We teach you how to create fantastic images for digital prints, websites, and professional presentations. Whether you are a nature photographer, love taking pictures of your children and grandchildren, or just want to better understand how Photoshop can work for you, then you need to attend this class.

The workshop will cover the use of Adobe® Photoshop® CS3, CS4, CS5 and/or Elements – the industry standards for digital image optimization.

Our In Depth course is for photographers who want to learn Photoshop and apply it to their digital photography. Perfect candidates are those who have just started working with Photoshop and/or digital photography and would like to better understand the powerful image editing capabilities of Photoshop.

We start our day right off at 8am with a digital presentation that provides an excellent orientation to Photoshop. Then, as the day progresses, we go through specific Photoshop operations such as formatting images for printing, creating panoramas, adjusting brightness/contrast and formatting images for internet usage. We also spend a good amount of time going through workflow tutorials using Photoshop's amazing file browser and automation tools.

The goal of this workshop is to give you a solid foundation so you'll understand where to start and where to finish. As always, the goal is a beautiful photograph at the end, so we take you through the process of sizing and sharpening as well.

At the end of this workshop, you will be well prepared to attend our Advanced Photoshop workshop.
