Quick & Simple tricks to make your pictures look great using Photoshop

Wouldn’t you love some quick and simple tips to make your dull photos come to life?

Whether they’re too dark, too bright, slightly blurred or in need of some simple retouching I’ll show you tips I’ve learned over 25+ years working as a graphic designer. I’ll also show you the best formats to prepare images for use in social media or printing out at home or for use in artwork preparation ready to send out to print.

I’ve been a graphic designer since Macs first appeared and have worked for Penguin Books, Marks & Spencer and many other clients through my design partnership Flow Design.

By the end of the class you’ll have learnt about Lighting Levels & adjustments, Colour Levels & adjustments, Focus adjustments, Size and Scale for different outputs, RGB vs CMYK and what they mean, Simple retouching with the Spot Healing Brush and Clone Tools and using the History Palette to go back in steps if you don’t like how it’s looking. And you’ll see how quick and easy it is to get some great results.
