Adobe Photoshop For Photographers Hands-On Intensive

Characteristics Of This Class:

Master quick and efficient RAW photo processing with Adobe Photoshop for consistently professional results. If you want to go beyond Photoshop basics, this class will teach you more of the program's in-depth workflow features for digital photographers.

This course takes you step-by-step through the instructor's tried and true photo-processing workflow using Camera RAW. You'll use this in conjunction with Adobe Photoshop and Bridge to take your photographs to the next level and shave hours off your processing time. After addressing this process, we'll then hit some photo-adjustment techniques, masking and layers.

This class will go over:

  • Bridge / Camera Raw / Photoshop workflow with emphasis on simplified photo processing in Camera Raw
  • What Raw photos are, and why it makes sense to shoot Raw
  • Importing photos from your digital camera the smart way
  • Using Adobe Camera Raw to efficiently adjust Raw photos and JPEGs
  • How and why to use Smart Objects in your photo workflow
  • The best techniques for correcting your photos in Photoshop
  • Non-destructive editing using Adjustment Layers
  • Fine-tuning your photo editing with masks
  • Working with editable Smart Filters
  • Master sharpening

Presented in Adobe Creative Cloud, but most of what is taught will apply to earlier versions of the program.

Who Should Take This:

Amateur and professional photographers with a basic understanding of the Photoshop interface, Layers, and selections. You should take Getting Started with Adobe Photoshop first if you need those essentials.

Loved it! The entire workshop was not only VERY informative but a WHOLE LOT OF FUN. I would recommed Mark Johnson as an instructor to anyone interested in learning Photoshop ....young, or old. The hands-on, enables even those persons with no Photoshop experience, the ability to enjoy using Photoshop without feeling intimidated.
