Leisure Courses

What career opportunities can this lead to?

Students can progress to photography courses, or other leisure courses offered at Eastleigh College.

What are the entry requirements?

The course is suitable for those who have already attended the Beginners and Improvers courses or have some underpinning Photoshop skills. It will build on the skills already taught on the Beginners and Improvers course.

What does this programme involve?

You will learn a wide variety of more advanced skills and techniques, including how to:

* use the Pen Tool to create shapes;
* use the Pen Tool to create accurate selections;
* use Paths effectively with an image or text;
* create more advanced graphics from scratch;
* explore and use prepared Shapes;
* use Puppet Warp and animation, as well as text animation;
* use more advanced Filters to create a line drawing;
* add some photographic effects such as bromoil, cross-processing, split-toning;
* how to use some advanced techniques for retouching pictures of people.

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

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

How is the programme taught and assessed?

The course will be taught by demonstration using the data projector and one to one coaching. The course is 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 a memory stick to the first lesson.

Students are responsible for the purchase of a memory stick for use in class.
