Photoshop Elements

Learn how to organize your images and especially, how to enhance and fix your digital photos.  Bring your laptop (PC or Mac) loaded with Elements 11 or newer, as well as images that you would like to use.  During the first week you will learn how to manage your photos and practice using the basic editing tools to improve your images.  During the second week, we will cover layers, how to create artistic effects, how to take out unwanted objects (like that pesky pedestrian in your family photo), how to move or add people to a photo, and other practical editing skills.   The third week will cover “digital darkroom” techniques to help you improve lighting, color, and exposure issues.  Tools and features covered will include levels, non-destructive layers, masks (applying effects or filters to specific areas), blending, as well as color and skin tone corrections and Photomerge. Check out Amy's work.
