For some of us, we've been using Photoshop since the mid 90's and version 3.0 and floppy disks. Now in its 12th release, Photoshop CS5, the legendary image-editing program has retained its streamlined interface and overall look and made huge additions in functionality and power. Without a doubt, Photoshop is the gold standard app for graphics and photography professionals, and used by countless artists, businesses, and groups that operate in every known activity.
This is one complex and powerful program. As a photographer, you'll need to be able to sort through the many features that will help make your photos better, without getting bogged down by the less relevant stuff. We've custom-designed this course to provide a practical guide to Photoshop that's specifically engineered for photographers.
Move beyond the filters panel and learn everything from making basic tonal adjustments to creating surreal multi-layer imagery. Try your hand at retouching for portraits and fashion. Discover how to make selections, create masks and use advanced compositing techniques to not only improve photographs, but to turn them into entirely new images.
Students must bring their own laptop.
