How good is your knowledge of Photoshop?

If you need to get to grips with the most popular editing software in the world - and fast - this one-day course will really help. Your tutor, Andrew, has credentials; he began with Photoshop in 1994 and has been using it ever since. That’s 25 years of experience so feel free to pick his brains! But apart from that, this hands-on workshop differs from others in two main ways and that’s what gets you up to speed so quickly.

Why this course works

Firstly, we use a dual approach to delivering the course content. On some workshops, you simply work through the various tools Photoshop has to offer; on others, you start with the finished image and re-wind back to the original. Both methods are valid. That’s why we use both. This two-way strategy covers all the bases and really helps you get a grasp of the language, tools and features of this comprehensive piece of software.

Secondly, because we limit numbers to 6 photographers, we are able to personalise the day to suit you. Before you attend, we contact you to find out what you want from the course and whether there are specific areas of interest that you want to drill down into. In effect, your course is customised to maximise your learning. How cool is that! We want you to get the most out of the day and be able to begin applying your knowledge where it counts for you - without delay.

The day begins with an introduction to the interface and the essential tools. We then move on to:

  • Setting up Photoshop - Essential keyboard shortcuts – File types and colour space
  • Using Photoshop with Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw
  • Working with layers
  • Layer masks and selections
  • Different ways to enhance skin
  • Adding textures with blending modes

Other aspects that may be included are:

  • Retouching hair, eyes and lips
  • Removing unwanted objects
  • Colour grading
  • Selective sharpening
  • Introduction to actions and filters

You will need a Windows or Mac computer with Adobe Photoshop CS6 or later.
