Event description
This is an Individual taster or refresher Session for 1 person in Adobe Photoshop.

About this Event

Individual 2 hr or 3 hr session for 1 person

This taster session will serve as an introduction to the capabilities of the program. It is for one person only. Please note the date shown above can be changed to a mutually convenient date. 

The session will be tailored towards your individual learning requirements or could serve as a "refresher" for those who have a basic knowledge of the program but wish to target the session for learning specific areas of the program.

To give you an idea of some of the topics we can cover, take a look at the content of my 1 day introductory course (set out below) and you can select from these. To give you an idea, typically in a 2hr session we will be able to cover an introduction to the workspace, cropping and straightening, making and saving selections, retouching, cutting objects off and replacing the background (using masking techniques).
