Crash Course in Photoshop Elements: Get Your Historypin Pics Ready to Go Online (one-day workshop for Images of OK participants or library and literacy staff and volunteers)
In preparation for Historypin training on April 4, the Oklahoma Department of Libraries is offering a special one-day crash course in Photoshop Elements, the gold-standard in digital photograph editing software. This training is provided to ensure the photos you share in Historypin will look their absolute best. Learn how to successfully navigate around the different editors and portals in the program. Explore basic features such as version sets, straightening photos, and cropping to pixel sizes recommended by the Historypin tool. Delve into extremely powerful tools using Histograms and Levels, which are excellent ways to enhance photos and really make them pop. Discover how to properly prepare photos to go online. Leave the class with your own Photoshop Elements for Dummies book to use as a resource for your photo editing.
If you have previous Photoshop Elements training and feel that you already know what will be covered in class, you will need permission from the instructor to skip this day of training before attending the Hands On Historypin class.
Class prerequisites: 1) Attendees need to be well-versed and comfortable using computers in general. 2) Attendees need to enroll in the Hands-On Historypin class on April 4.
Kathy Blick O’Donnell, ODL’s computer and app lab coordinator, trainer, and Photoshop Elements enthusiast, will teach the class.
