Adobe Photoshop Elements for Photographers - $125
No photo looks its best right out of the camera. It takes some photo editing to bring a photo to life. Adobe Photoshop Elements (PSE) is one of the most efficient editing tools available, and we're here to help you with the learning curve.
Adobe Photoshop Elements for Photographers is three information-packed weeks of hands-on photo editing. We start with photo organization - so you can find all those photos again - then cover the basics of cropping, straightening, tonal correction, color balance, and sharpening. Next, we dive into the power tools you'll use every day, including layers and masking. Finally, we explore the creative options Elements comes with - text, special effects, photomerge, and a variety of output options.
We invite you to come to class with your copy of PSE installed and operational. Our classes cover Elements versions 11 through 13 (the current version). If you have an older version, we highly recommend you upgrade to the most recent version before class. Adobe provides 30-day free trials of all their software, so you can try before you buy.
If you're interested in learning Photoshop CC instead, we still recommend you learn Elements first. The learning curve with PS CC can be daunting, to say the least. Getting Elements under your belt before you leap into PS CC will make the transition much easier.
Adobe Photoshop Elements for Photographers is $125.
