The way we process photographs has changed significantly in the last decade. As the use of film has waned, most photographers must now master sophisticated digital-processing software. This course guides you through the essentials of Adobe® Lightroom® and Photoshop®—the most popular digital photo-processing software available today. Professional photographer Bob Warren introduces the fundamentals of these programs, discusses electronic photo editing and reviews essential tools for manipulating images. We explore topics such as using Adobe Lightroom as a preprocessor, the Photoshop interface, retouching, color balance and resizing. The first half of the course covers Lightroom, and the second half covers Photoshop. Based on the Creative Cloud version of Adobe products, the course is appropriate for beginning and intermediate users of Lightroom and Photoshop.
Note: Participants must bring a Mac® or PC laptop to class, preloaded with the Adobe Creative Cloud suite and with Lightroom and Photoshop installed. The cost of a subscription to these programs is approximately $10/month and is not included in the course fee. Information on installing these programs is provided upon registration.
