Photoshop Module

Duration: 4 Evenings / 10 Hours

Requirements: A laptop (PC or Mac) with Photoshop CC, CS6 or CS5 installed

What is the module about?

Image editing is an essential part of the creative workflow and allows you to re-interpret your images and fine-tune your artistic vision.

Our Photoshop Module will teach you step-by-step processes used within the professional industry and introduces the essentials of this unique software, such as layers and adjustment layers, before moving on to more complex non-destructive retouching and photo montage skills until you reach a professional level of post-production.

As most photographers use Photoshop hand-in-hand with Lightroom, we will explain how to link the two applications to create an integrated workflow.
