This 5-week course covers many of the tools and techniques for effectively editing your photos. You will greatly improve your editing skills, thereby improving the overall quality of your images.
In the second session, you will learn how to use the selection tools (marquee, lasso, magic wand, etc.) the transform, crop and straighten tools, and the fix tools (healing brush, clone stamp, content aware, etc.). You will also learn how to use many of the adjustment tools, such as levels, color correction, contrast, exposure and shadow/highlight.
Students will need a laptop with Photoshop CS5 or Photoshop Elements 11 or higher. Use of a mouse is highly recommended. This course includes hands-on instruction. Each student is given a CD with a collection of photographs that are used to demonstrate various tools. Everyone works together on the same photos as instruction is given in order to maximize the learning process.
Time: 6-9 p.m.
Cost: $45 for one session, $40 each for 2-4 sessions, $175 for all 5 sessions
What people are saying about this class:
"As CEO of Cottonwood Center for the Arts we look to hire instructors not just for their aptitude in their subject, but also their ability to impart lessons that resonate for our students. Further, we seek personalities that attract people to our courses. Mike Pach is by far our most successful instructor at Cottonwood. His classes are extremely well attended and appreciated. Mike is our biggest revenue producer in our education program, is 100% reliable and represents his students' interests with true integrity. I will continue to rehire Mike as long as he's available and highly recommend him." Jon Khoury
"This was an amazing class. I learned so much. Photoshop is an incredible tool. Mike walked us through all the various functions and tools. We saw how they work. He provided problem photos for us to work on in class. He pointed out the problems and proceeded to show us step by step how to fix them. We worked though them right there. All of the exercises were WOW experiences. He would demonstrate a tool and turn us loose to play. It was a great confidence building experience. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn Photoshop." ~ Alana Thrower
"I have taken photography classes and a Photoshop class from Mike Pach, and I highly recommend him as an instructor. He is well organized, explains topics in an easy-to-understand way, and is very encouraging to his students. I also enjoy Mike's sense of humor and how he keeps the classes a lot of fun. I also appreciate that Mike has been willing to answer my questions, even after the class has ended. I'm looking forward to more classes with him!" ~ Pam Soderholm
