Photoshop® is truly the 800 pound gorilla of the graphics world, with a very deep and broad interface. We start at the beginning, even if you have no Photoshop experience, and walk you through the basics. Many of these elementary photo imaging principles apply both to Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, an excellent program for the hobbyist. It is recommended however, that you have a basic understanding of computing and your operating system, either Windows or Mac, first.
The beginnings topics I cover include The Work Area, Tools, Navigating, Using the Bridge (File Browser), Making Selections, (Tools & Methods), Layer Basics, Layer Styles (FX), Resolution, Resizing, File Size, Image Adjustments & Basic Photo Corrections.
After the basics, I can continue on with topics such as Retouching & Repairing Photos, Masks, Channels, Painting, Editing, Paths, Pen Tools, Shapes,Type, Advanced Layer Techniques, Filters, Special Effects, Optimizing, Saving for Web, Printing & Collages.
One of the cornerstones of my classes is my belief that they must be tailored to the needs and goals of the students. Many adults come to these classes with tremendous variation in their experience and skills; it is my primary job to first as certain what my students need and how best to proceed to attain their goals.
I strive to promote a low pressure and welcoming atmosphere, geared to the needs and goals of adult students. I use discussions, demonstrations, videos, hand outs, and other materials to demystify Photoshop and help students to discover its endless creative possibilities for personal expression.
Or….. I’d be happy to create a special class for your organization or group!
I could come in to meet you and your staff and give you a complimentary sample presentation so you can decide if I am right for your community. No obligation, of course.
I can teach Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Affinity Photo, Pixlr, or Procreate or others.
Call me 561-432-4633 and we can discuss!
