In this intensive 2-day workshop, participants will learn the basics of Adobe Photoshop needed to perform everyday tasks, manipulate images, touch up blemishes, colourize black and white images, correct colour, and create exciting photo compositions! Students will be introduced to the workspace, and familiarize themselves with the tools. They will learn how to set up a file, import an image, use layers, brushes, selection methods, how to export a file, and which colour spaces and file resolutions to use for print vs web applications. Students will leave with the know-how to keep working with Photoshop successfully at home, from performing everyday tasks such as cropping images or removing blemishes to creating imaginative and colourful photoshop collage-art pieces.

Materials: Please bring a notebook and a USB stick.
