If you want to adjust your images, Adobe Photoshop is a great software, but it is a big program that can be overwhelming. This class will cover the basics to get you started and give you a foundation to grow from. Your camera settings are only the first half of exposure. How you develop an image is the rest. Learn how to get the most out of your digital images using Adobe Photoshop, a digital darkroom.
To insure that class can begin promptly at it's start time, please have a fully installed and working version of Photoshop on your laptop. If you have a desktop computer, you can simply take notes. See the "Needed Supplies" section below for more information.
