In these 3 introductory sessions you will learn about the essentials to taming the Photoshop beast. Each 90 minute session focuses on core skills necessary to start navigating through and performing basic functions on this amazing and robust image editing program.
A maximum of 15 per class so that each participant can get the attention necessary when learning a complex program.
You will take more advantage of the class if you bring your own laptop with a version of Photoshop (from CS3 onwards) already installed. You can download Adobe's free 30 day trial at: http://www.adobe.com/downloads/
