The goal of the course is to develop each student’s ability to work with Adobe Photoshop while having fun in the process. Hands-on training and close instructor supervision reinforces concepts presented through lecture and demonstration. Students are highly encouraged to learn more of Adobe Photoshop’s tools and capabilities by enrolling in Photoshop 2: After the Basics.

It is recommended that students purchase and read Martin Evening’s Photoshop for Photographers as a good reference book. In addition, it is highly recommended that any beginning Photoshop user join the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), founded by Scott Kelby.

This course will be taught in LACP’s digital lab. Students will have their own workstation equipped with a 27″ iMac computer loaded with Photoshop CC. Bamboo Pen & Touch digital tablets will be available if needed. Although participants will be learning using Photoshop CC, the skills taught are cross-platform to earlier versions of Photoshop.
