Limited class size for personalized instruction – maximum 10 students

In this class you will learn digital editing skills using Adobe Photoshop Elements 10/11, the basic computer editing program used by most non-pro photographers. It is designed as a refresher course for those who attended the previous photo editing class at NBG this summer and those who have rudimentary knowledge of the program but wish to learn more. Both the Organizer module used to load, tag, rate, & locate images and the Editor will be covered. Included is information on cropping, straightening, reducing noise, and sharpening images plus adjusting contrast, exposure, and color saturation. Tips include how to create and use selections; remove distractions; add text; alter file size for e-mail, web, and print applications; and utilize layers and masks. Instruction is based on Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 & 11 Software & PC Computers. Students should be familiar with rudimentary PC and digital camera operation.

Time has been set aside between Friday evening and Sunday afternoon to allow participants the opportunity to practice techniques discussed in class on their own and to bring questions to class. With the small class size, the instructor will be able to customize instruction for individual needs.
