- Elementary Photoshop Elements, Post Processing Practices
September 26, 2019 - October 17, 2019
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Life has become more and more digitally based, for both the artist and the non-artist. The shift to digital submissions for artists has increased the need to polish editing skills past just taking a photo of your art. The ability to quickly snap photos with your phone leaves us with the question of how to make a favorite photo both frame ready and worthy? Designed for ease-of-use, Adobe Photoshop Elements is a simple-but-effective image editing and organization application and alternative to the full Photoshop software. (Note a free trial of Photoshop Elements can be downloaded to try out). The apparent simplicity of making a digital photo means that you point, shoot, and think they you’re done, never tapping into the full range of possibilities captured in your digital files.
This 4 week class starts with reviewing the tools and techniques to maximize the quality of the image capture, enhancement of files, and assuring the best quality possible in your final images. We will review the Organization tools, Intelligent Editing of your files, Creativity and all-important Sharing toolsets this software provides. Class limited to 10 students.
