Note: Also every technique that will be shown has already been made into an action for Photoshop CC and CS6. This class is an Adobe Photoshop class we will not be using Lightroom. We will also be demonstrating the amazing Nik Collection by DXO, Silver Effects 3.0.
Please download, install and test both Photoshop and Silver Effects before the class start date.
