Intro to Photoshop Class

I'll be hosting an Intro to Photoshop Class at NSL on Friday, September 13th from 7pm - 10pm. Whether you're new to Photoshop or an experienced editer who wants to add Photoshop to your toolkit, this class is for you! Come learn Photoshop in a friendly, hands-on environment. I'll be going over all of the basics of Photoshop as well as introducing in some more advanced methods of editing/manipulating at the end of the class if there is time and interest.

After the presentation we'll work hands on with images - taking what we've learned and applying it to real editing scenarios.

It is free to attend the class but I strongly encourage a donation (or membership) to NSL to help us keep NSL open and filled with fun toys.

See below for instructions on what you need before the class.

What to bring:

  Your Computer
  Your mouse and mousepad
  Installled: Adobe Photoshop (CS5, CS6, CC preferred). Get the trial from Adobe.

Topics that will be covered:

  Simple adjustments
  What are all those tools for anyway?
  What are filters and why they can be good
  The Spot Healing Brush tool, The Lasso Tool, The Quick Selection Tool
  Brushes and the many things you can do with them
  Creating gradients
  Blurring, dodging, and burning
  Pen Tool, Text tool, and Shape tool
  Utilizing Workspaces
  Layers and how they work and why you must use them
  + More gauging interest/time 
  + Hands on demos where you will edit

I hope to see ya'll there!
