Leisure Courses

What career opportunities can this lead to?

Students can progress to our Adobe Photoshop Advanced course, Photography courses or other leisure courses offered by Eastleigh College.

What are the entry requirements?

The course is suitable for those who have already attended a basic five week course, or have some underpinning of Photoshop skills. It will build up the skills already taught on the Beginners course.

What does this programme involve?

You will learn a variety of skills and techniques including:

* more advanced selection techniques;
* how to create a panoramic shot;
* how to combine parts of images;
* using Layer Masks to work on part of an image only;
* how to blur the background and sharpen the foreground of an image;
* how to create Andy Warhol pop-art type images;
* using a variety of text effects including filling text with images;
* learn about layer blend effects and create a watermark;
* how to create effects from scratch, e.g. put water droplets on a flower.

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

A college certificate will be awarded on successful completion of the course.

How is the programme taught and assessed?

The course will be taught by demonstration via data projector and one to one coaching. This course is taught with mainly hands on learning.

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 else do I need to know?

Please bring a pen, paper/notepad and memory stick to the course. You will not need your camera in the class.

Students are responsible for the purchase of a memory stick for use on this course.
