This two day workshop is designed to get you completely comfortable using Photoshop Elements to manage and adjust your images. We start at the beginning - how to get images on to your computer and into Elements. We'll end with black-and-white conversion and how to use layers and masks to do advanced adjustments on your images.
The class runs Saturday, March 2nd from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm; and Saturday, March 9th from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. When you register, you're registering for both days (Meetup doesn't have a good way to create a multi-day event like this). The class is divided into two days so you can take time to practice what you've learned (and do homework!) before taking on the next chunk.
Here are the topics we'll cover:
Saturday, March 2th
•Understanding the organizer and how to take advantage of all it offers.
•Getting images from your camera to your PC.
•Organizing your images for reliable backup.
•Renaming files as you import.
•Fixing basic issues with your jpg files – color, tone, contrast.
•Exporting, sizing, and sharing images.
Saturday, March 9th
Working with raw files
•Why raw capture helps you over shooting jpg.
•How to process raw files using Adobe Camera Raw.
•Fixing up people – fixing blemishes, red-eye, wrinkles
•Using layers to make adjustments you can change.
•Using masks to apply adjustments selective to parts of an image.
•Simple HDR using multiple exposures with layers and masks
•Making great black-and-white images
We're confident you'll find this a helpful and worthwhile class so we're offering a money-back guarantee. If you attend both sessions and feel you haven't gotten your money's worth, we'll refund your fee. It's that simple.
Your registration includes:
•8 hours of classroom instruction.
•Comprehensive written materials.
•Sample images for exercises with before and after versions.
