Is there anything else I need to know?
The college uses Adobe Photoshop CC running on Microsoft Windows PCs. This course is suitable for Mac users since Photoshop is very similar on Macs. Please note that Photoshop Elements is a different product and, although there are similarities, you will need to do some extra work at home to translate between the two.
