What opportunities will this course give me?

Learners can progress to our Adobe Photoshop Improvers course, attend a Photography course, or other leisure course offered by the college. Please browse the website for further details.

What will I be learning?

You will learn a wide variety of skills and techniques, starting with correcting common faults in digital images:

* develop a structured Workflow for correcting images
* Crop and Straighten your images
* use Levels and Curves to change and correct exposure problems in images
* change and correct Colours in an image, and create Black and White images
* use Dodge and Burn to change local exposure
* remove objects from a picture, from dust spots to larger things, and repair a damaged image
* use Content Aware capability
* work with multiple Layers
* use simple Selection tools to combine parts of images
* add Text with special effects

The tutor will also aim to include into the course any requests that you may have.

An Eastleigh College certificate is available on request following completion of the course.

Why is this course for me?

Students will learn by demonstration via data projector and one to one coaching. The course is primarily hands on learning for students.

The college uses Adobe Photoshop CC running on Microsoft Windows PCs. Please note that Photoshop Elements is a different product and, although there are similarities, and support materials are available for Elements, you will need to do some extra work at home to translate between the two.

What do I need to sign up?

The course is suitable for beginners with no prior knowledge of Adobe Photoshop. You should have basic computer skills, such as using a mouse, double- and right-clicking, and understand terminology such as drop-down menus.

Is there anything else I need to know?

Please bring a pen and paper/notepad. You do not need a camera, but you might want to bring a memory stick to save pictures that you've worked on in class.

Learners are responsible for the purchase of materials relevant to the course.
