Photo Manipulation with Photoshop Workshop

3 hours – $125 (Class size: 3-6 Students)

This class addresses the specific strength of Photoshop over Lightroom; heavy photo manipulation.  Here we will learn to use Photoshop to splice multiple group shots together to get one usable image, remove significant pieces of background, create artistic composites, body reshaping and more!

 

Students must bring their own laptop or computer with Adobe Photoshop Elements 9+ installed. (Full Photoshop versions ok too; a mouse is highly recommended)

Please note this workshop does not teach to utilize Photoshop as your sole editing program. This class assumes you use Lightroom for all regular editing/retouching and are resorting to Photoshop only for the things that can NOT be done in Lightroom.
