Your course will explore the power and versatility of Adobe Photoshop CC in a series of practical exercises designed to build your knowledge and develop confidence in your creative ability to use this industry-standard image manipulation program for design purposes.

Topics covered include:
- navigate the Photoshop interface
- the Photoshop toolbox
- image scanning
- image modes and file formats
- image resolution
- selection tools
- image adjustments and repair (hue, saturation, contrast etc)
- basic retouching
- using layers
- exploration of a variety of tools and techniques to transform your images creatively (filters, painting tools, layer styles etc)
- inputting text
- individual project

This course can function as a stand-alone introductory course in Photoshop CC but is also designed to be taken in conjunction with C01642 Adobe InDesign Saturday Intensive (Introduction) and C01643 Adobe Illustrator Saturday Intensive (Introduction) which follow later in the term. Combined, these three courses will give you a good fundamental knowledge of how these programs work together seamlessly to produce fliers, brochures, magazines, logos etc.

Intermediate courses in these three programs will be available subsequently so that you can continue to develop your skills and technical knowledge after completion of the introductory courses.
