Photoshop: Beginner to Intermediate

Photoshop is fun! It's the world's state of-the-art photo editing program. Everything that was once done in a darkroom or on a drafting board is now done digitally, mostly in Photoshop. Whether you get pictures off your iPhone or digital camera, scan them, or download them from Google Images, you need to edit and adjust them. Before you post them online, email them, or print them, you will need to use Photoshop (or another photo-editing program) to do so. Photoshop is complex; other photo-editing programs are less complex. Take this class to learn the principles that are behind them all.

This class is about doing all the basic things with photos (and drawings or a combination) that most people want to do. We'll cover: photo resolution, JPEG and TIFF file types, RGB or CMYK color modes, adjusting Contrast and Levels, Sharpening and Cropping, using Layers and Clipping Paths, and other tools common to all photo-editing programs. We will also be covering: making collages, removing and changing backgrounds, adjusting colors, applying filters, and photo retouching. We'll design logos and create non-photo and photo artwork.

In this 5-week (10 hour) class, you will become comfortable with all of this and more. This is a fast-paced class, we have a lot to cover. Please come with a good foundation of computer skills and a desire to work with photos and artwork. We will be using the latest version of Photoshop at one of Park High School’s computer labs. Whether you have Photoshop, GIMP, or another photo program installed (at home or at work) and whether you are a beginner or an intermediate user—this class will benefit you.
