Tools of the Trade
Photoshop Basics covers many of the different tools and techniques used to enhance your images in Adobe Photoshop. In this class you will learn the basics of how to use color correcting tools, retouching tools, selection/resizing tools, and more. We will also discuss the many uses and applications of Adobe Photoshop. This class is perfect for someone who is looking for basic post processing skills (color correction, skin retouching, cropping, removing small imperfections, ect.) Having a basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop is a plus but it not necessary. However, a basic knowledge of computer functions, such as the use of menus, windows, dragging, left and right clicking, is required.
