Enrol in Photoshop

Course Code: ARTS1752

Please note: Basic Windows skills are essential and required. Photoshop itself is practically identical on both Mac and PC, however, so program instruction applies to both platforms. This course is intended for and taught using the full version of Photoshop CS5 but may also be suitable for Photoshop Elements users (lite version) as nearly all of the tools and practical techniques are transferable. There is no instruction given in the use of Elements specifically, however. Ansel Adams said, "The negative is comparable to the composer's score, and the print to its performance". The ability to digitally manipulate images provides vast opportunities ranging from simple correction of imperfections to highly artistic applications and results. Restore, enhance, or completely alter an existing image. Learn the basics of choosing appropriate file types and options for web and print, and complete digital manipulation techniques using advanced tools including selective application of effects and filters, and layers. Taking photographs is not part of the instruction - please bring your own digital images.
