Photoshop for the
Non-Designer

This class helps tame Adobe Photoshop and makes it accessible to the absolute beginner. The pace of this class is slower than our other Photoshop classes and the goal for students is to reach fundamental understanding of the program and be able to make basic image edits with confidence. The class covers basic color editing, cropping, combining photos into simple photo-compositions, image repair, and basic image formatting for graphics work.

Photoshop for the Non-Designer may be taken as a 1-day stand alone class or as part of our larger 4-day Workshop for the Non-Designer that covers the fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, and Design Fundamentals.
