Course Details


This advanced class builds on your existing knowledge of Photoshop and expands your list of creative techniques. While this course is strongly slanted toward design-related details and functions, it also explores the real-world challenges that apply to the everyday use of Photoshop.


This class is appropriate for intermediate level users. Bringing samples of the kinds of projects that you would like to be able to do is helpful but not required. We also recommend that you have the software installed before starting the class. You can purchase the software or obtain a trial version of it from the Adobe web site at
