Basic image cleanup to eliminate simple spots and distractions.

REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS:  Our goal is to provide a fun and professional learning environment that fosters a positive experience and builds a strong relationship with Samy's Camera customers.  Unless otherwise noted, all classes require advance registration due to limited seating and/or availability.  Samy's EDU makes the decision to run a class based on the attendance level 48 hours prior to the class.  Because of this, we can only offer a refund if you notify us by sending an email to EDU@Samys.com 48 hours before your class.  If you fail to provide email notification or if you cancel less than 48 hours prior to the class all monies will be forfeit and you will not receive a refund.    On occasion we may cancel a class because of low enrollment and/or unforeseen professional conflict on the part of the instructor. Should this be the case, all monies will be refunded in full.
