New Photoshop Classes

The popular Photoshop class Basic Photo Manipulation has been divided into three classes—each just an hour long. Prior Photoshop experience is helpful for these classes, but is not required.

  • Touching Up Your Photos: Learn how to clean up your photos using the Crop, Healing Brush, Patch, and Clone Stamp tools among others. Topics include straightening, covering blemishes, and the consideration of perspective.
  • Adding and Removing Elements: Learn how to manipulate your photos by removing unwanted elements, or adding elements from other photos. This class will focus on the use of the Eraser, Quick Selection, and Object Selection tools to remove and add people and items.
  • Resolving Color Issues: Learn how to adjust color as well as contrast and brightness in your photos. This class will introduce adjustment layers and many of Photoshop’s functions that deal with color.

In addition to the new Photoshop classes, other classes offered in November include basic Qualtrics and InDesign, advanced spreadsheets, macros in both Excel 2019 and Google Sheets, InDesign Intermediate and Adobe Spark.
