Digital Photo Editing

This 4-session “hands on” class is taught by pro photographer Bill Brown. You’ll learn how to use Adobe Photoshop Elements software to edit and improve your digital photographs. Classes are for beginning and intermediate photographers who have a laptop computer with any Photoshop Elements Version from 9 to 15 installed.

You will learn how to improve your images by adjusting the color and sharpness, and how to correct problems like overexposure and underexposure. Topics will include understanding Photoshop Elements’ tools, filters, layers, resolution, file size, cropping and more. At the first class you will be given the “class images” that all will work on. As we move on, you will work with your own images.

NOTE: You can download Adobe Photoshop Elements from the website and use it as a free trial for 30 days. So, if you are interested in trying the program this is a great way to do it before investing.

You must have basic computer skills, with either MAC or PC. This is not a class on how to use your computer. Students will need essential basic computer skills to take this class, e.g: navigating on your computer, opening applications, creating folders and saving files to a folder, and how to use e-mail.

Please arrive one half hour early to set up your computer. It’s easier to navigate with an external mouse than to use the touch pad on your laptop.
If you don’t know how to upload images from your camera or media card please come one hour early to the first meeting for instruction.
