ICL: AN INTRODUCTION TO PHOTOSHOP - 5 Sessions
AN INTRODUCTION TO PHOTOSHOP
by Stephan Banakas, 5 Sessions, Wednesdays, January 20 – February 17, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Once you have taken the picture – now what? In this very basic introduction to the world of Photoshop we will acquaint you with mechanics of the program, how to set it up and then navigate your way around in Photoshop, and address the basic post-processing methods found in this program. All of this will be accomplished as we work on actual RAW images that will be provided by the instructor. We plan to get into Adobe Camera Raw, Adjustment Layers, Blend Modes, Filters, Saturation, Cropping, Vignetting, and much more. All of this will be presented at a very basic level. Certain elements of photography and image structure and composition will also be discussed. Whether you shoot landscapes or macro there is something in this class for you.
NOTE: We will NOT be working in Lightroom or Elements and those attending must have access to Photoshop CS6 or newer. (The latest version is CC 2021.) Either Apple or PC versions of the program can be used.
