In the world of digital photography, Photoshop and Lightroom are essential tools for managing, editing and finishing your images. These powerful Adobe programs offer incredible creative potential but with a vast array of features and capabilities they can also be a bit intimidating.
This workshop provides a friendly, accessible and comprehensive introduction to Photoshop and Lightroom. It’s perfect if you’re completely new to these programs, or have some skills but need a refresher to feel confident using them on your own.
Over four sessions, you’ll learn how to import and catalogue your images, use simple editing functions such as contrast, blemish-removal, colour-control and lens corrections, and create and apply layers and masks. At the end of the workshop, you’ll be well on the way to using Photoshop and Lightroom to transform your images and create digital artworks.
