Adobe photoshop is the international standard for
image processing. Any photographer wishing to make effective images must use
photoshop whether to create reference images for painting or to make simply
Photoshop, however, is a massive program and
learning it independently often feels like you need a whip and a chair. But the
workshop will suffice. It tackles the following issues:
- A simplified sequence of actions yields an
excellent image in just a couple of minutes: crop, straighten, set full tonal
range, brighten, set contrast, saturate, retouch and sharpen. This procedure is
all you need for most shots.
- How to save the image in different formats and
different quality levels (low quality for web/social media/email and high
quality for printing)
- Controlling a printer
- How to use the history command when
you want to return to an earlier point in the editing process. This can be a
huge work saver.
- Selecting part of an image so that edits only
apply to the selected parts
- Adding adjustment layers to the image permits
altering numerous variables like brightness, contrast, saturation, hue, color
balance and more only in certain areas of the image.
- Stitching a number of images
together to create a dramatic panorama
- Process high dynamic range (HDR) images where
multiple shots at different exposures bring out detail in both the highlights
and the shadows.
- Guidance for further learning and a partial
introduction to other tools in Photoshop.
- Attendees will perform all the operations on
files supplied by the instructor on their own laptop computers with Photoshop
Class fee $95.00.
The workshop will have a minimum of 4 attendees and
a maximum of 8. Attendees must bring a laptop (Mac or PC) with Photoshop CC

case, you download the product from Adobe.com. Contact Bob Cook at 512-618-8641
