Photoshop Elements Beginner 3 hour cram course

9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.


Please note we need to have a minimum of four people to make this happen.  If we cancel the class, of course you will be fully refunded.

This cram course is designed to get you started and teach the basics of Photoshop Elements version 9 or 10 or 11.  We highly recommend you upgrade if you have an earlier version. 

Where everything of importance is located,
the different toolbars and menus,

Understanding the various tools,
layer masks,
portrait retouching
and raw conversions

....  are some of the topics covered in this course.  One participant said he learned more in this three hour class than the other two Elements workshops he had taken in the past.  We'll start you with a really good foundation!  If you've ever taken any of Peggy's workshops, you know she drums everything into your head so you really learn!

Participants must provide their own laptop, with a mouse (or Wacom tablet), and should have basic computer skills. Please note - even if you never use a mouse, you will really, really need one for this class.  It's just too tough to edit with that little track pad.

Unfortunately, Photoshop CS and Photoshop Elements are not as user-friendly as we'd like!  Take this class and you'll have a strong foundation.

    I was so excited but unfortunately I was the one of our class who had a problem with my pse11 software & could not participate until we figured out my problem later in the class. So Peggy was amazing & allowed me to retake the class. I was very impressed with how personal a small class is & much easier to UNDERSTAND things with less people. Hands on learning really was the best way to get the foundations of this software. I also like that now I can continue to ask questions as I experiment at home, just by going to Understand Photography Facebook page. It was all GOOD!
