 …concentrates on the ‘digital darkroom’ skills needed to adjust your images to a professional standard. We show you how to process RAW files, demonstrate the flexibility and importance of layers, blending modes and masks for retouching portraits, as well as techniques for producing great black and white images by converting colour to monochrome. You will also learn how a good understanding and application of colour spaces, papers and printing profiles make all the difference to the presentation of your final image.

 …covers all the essential skills such as selection, cropping and resizing techniques, the use of the Clone tool and simple image correction with Levels and Variations and a variety of other tools such as the Unsharp mask. This course would also suit those who would like to refresh their basic knowledge before undertaking the main Photoshop for Photographers course.

…is intended for those photographers with little or no experience of Photoshop and gets you started by introducing the workspace, basic tool settings, file navigation and preferences amongst a variety of other fundamentals.

“No “Photoshop” skills are necessary for the Introductory course but you will need to be fully competent in the use of your computer’s operating system and especially in the handling and management of files.”

…takes you into the realm of creative image enhancement using the powerful tools to be discovered in the Photoshop menus. A variety of art techniques are explored and demonstrated including, how to produce a montage or triptych, using gradient maps for added colour impact, creating an atmospheric duotone image and the use of textured overlays.

Our guest tutor for this last session will be Sue Harley ARPS whose stunning images - a small sample featured above - under the pseudonym of Trevellion may be found at Flickr
