Class Project

Retouch a photo for design layout

About the Class

As a graphic designer, I've found Photoshop skills to be key to the success of my projects. Sometimes I am fortunate enough to work with an amazing photographer whose work is ready to be used. However, more often than not, I receive photos and realize they could use a good deal of editing before I place them in my layout. Rather than see a good layout suffer, I have learned how to harness the power of Photoshop to transform ordinary photos into amazing portraits. 

Who The Class Is For

Whether you are a graphic designer, photographer, student, blogger, or hobbyist, this class will provide you with the skills to edit portraits professionally. The skills covered in this class are typically aquired over several years of professionial practice. The goal of this class is to enable you to avoid a long learning curve and equip you with powerful and practical photo editing skills today.

What We'll Cover

In this class I'll introduce you to the core tools and features you'll need to know for photo editing. Specifically, we'll cover how to: 

  • Remove blemishes
  • Whiten teeth
  • Remove dark circles under eyes
  • Make hair shine
  • Remove skin redness
  • Improve lighting
  • Bring out the color in eyes
  • Even out skin tone
  • Adjust the color of hair and clothes
  • And more . . . 

This Class is Project-Based

You'll apply the skills you're learning to a project of your very own. Take a headshot, your yearbook picture or a real photo you're trying to edit for your portfolio or website and make it 10x more appealing. 

Here is an example of a Photoshop transformation you'll soon be able to do yourself!

Awesome class! I had little to no background with photoshop and I'm much more comfortable doing touchups.
