What career opportunities can this lead to?

Learners can progress to our Adobe Photoshop Improvers course or to another higher level course within the college.

What are the entry requirements?

The course is suitable for beginners with no prior knowledge of Adobe Photoshop.

What does this programme involve?

You will learn a wide variety of skills and techniques, including:

* correcting common faults in digital images;
* how to Crop and Straighten;
* how to use Levels and Curves to change and correct exposure problems in a picture;
* other techniques for adjusting exposure including Dodge and Burn, and desaturing a picture;
* how to change and correct colours in a picture;
* how to remove objects from a picture, from dust spots to larger things;
* repairing a damaged image;
* selecting and working on part of a image;
* understanding layers and how to combine images into a collage;

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.

How is the programme taught and assessed?

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 else do I need to know?

Please bring a pen and paper/notepad to the first class. You may want to bring a memory stick later in the course. A camera is not an essential item for this course. All graphics are supplied by tutor.

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