Photoshop for Photographers Workshop (Online)


with RA Friedman

Calendar Next available session starts Jul 30, 2022 at 1 pm

Saturday & Sunday, 1 - 4 pm

Photoshop has become the editing tool of choice for photography: an essential part of the “digital darkroom,” allowing the photographer to make precise corrections to carefully defined parts of a photo. It is nearly indispensable for refining an image to make it the most impactful, especially if it is to be digitally printed. This two-session hands-on workshop will focus on the needs of photographers and show you how to unlock the potential within the program. Learn how to do quick edits for things like social media and how to work with layers and masks -- a method that gives you virtually unlimited image control.
