Lightroom And Photoshop - Digital Imaging Level 1

Today's photographers live in a digital world. We no longer "snap pictures" and send film to the labs for processing. Today we "digitally capture" images, process them on our computers, distribute them online, and print them on our desktop printers.

This is a hands-on-computer class designed to help students with little or no prior digital experience learn the tools needed to produce professional-quality results. Instruction emphases Adobe Lightroom Software for the first ten classes and then ventures into Photoshop for five weeks. Next semester, level 2 classes will pickup with Photoshop where this class ends.

Our lab has 9 Mac computers with Photoshop CS2. You are invited to bring your own laptop computer with the latest version of Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop CC software already installed. The new Creative Cloud version can be purchased at a discount by going to the this link.

Currently active schoolteachers may qualify for a $50.00 discount on this class by registering and then bringing a copy of your credentials to the first class.

Class is limited to 15 students. (Minimum enrollment of 5 students)
