Used by photographers, graphic designers, digital artists, and illustrators alike, Adobe Photoshop allows users to edit photographs for precision and accuracy and use their imaginations to create sensational scenes and stunning printed graphics.
In this workshop, the instructor will guide you through a step-by-step overview of frequently used Photoshop adjustments and tools using provided digital images and photographs. In addition, you will learn the basics of photographic editing, photo retouching, digital collage, and preparation of an image for print.
Class time will be part instruction and part work time. A laptop with Photoshop software is required for the course so that you can follow along with the instructor’s lessons. In addition, you are encouraged to bring your photographs and digital art on which to work and work with the provided demonstration images.

If you need to purchase Photoshop software, B&H has a good deal on a yearly subscription to Photoshop and Lightroom (paying for the two subscriptions together is less expensive.) https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1124191-REG/adobe_65259312_creative_cloud_photography_plan.html
