Our Photoshop for Photographers course will take you from Photoshop novice to someone who can confidently navigate it and use its super powerful tools to take your photos beyond what you thought was possible! So if you've ever dreamt about being able to use Photoshop, maybe even got as far as opening it and quickly get overwhelmed with all that's packed inside - we've got you. 


How to use Photoshop - as a Photographer

Photoshop is a hugely powerful tool that was designed for multiple different users - from graphic designers, 3D artists, digital artists to well, us, photographers. So in our course, we focus on the way a photographer would use it and how photographers work with their images so that everything you learn can instantly be applied to your images! 

ONE COURSE - TWO LEVELS

The learning curve in Photoshop can be steep - but it's only because how much you can do in it, not because it's some black magic ( though we do make magic), so to make sure you can get the most out of it, we divided the course into two levels: 


LEVEL 1

ESSENTIAL Photoshop for Photographers

In which you learn to :

  • Navigate the software and set it up for a proper, smart, non-destructive workflow
  • Discover all the essential tools and techniques that take your images way beyond what you could do in Lightroom 
  • Learn the key skills : from masks to brushes, from blending modes to selections, from cloning to canvas extensions, from face swaps to sky swaps - and more!! 


LEVEL 2

CREATIVE Photoshop for Photographers

In which you take all that you learned in the Essentials course and turbo boost it for creativity. You'll learn :

  • How to play with light, colour and blur for unique creative outcomes
  • How to get more out of the familiar tools - so advanced brushes, advanced selections, advanced blending
  • More fun skills : from skin edits to retouching, from stitching photos to involved composites, from creating effects such as neon glow to turning your photos into comics  and more! 


THE COURSE STRUCTURE:

  • Each course level consisting of 4 modules, delivered over 4 weeks
  • Step by step video lessons with downloadable reference materials (video and pdf files downloadable) 
  • Weekly Live Edit-Along webinar class ( Wednesday evenings, after 8.00pm)
  • weekly challenges ( inclusive of files to edit) to apply your skills straight away
  • support group to help answer your Photoshop questions

COURSE PREREQUISITES:

  • We HIGHLY recommend a good working knowledge of Lightroom - there are elements of the course which depend on that knowledge
  • Photoshop downloaded onto your computer ( if you have Adobe Photography Plan subscription, Photoshop course will be included) 
  • Computer which fulfils at least the minimum system requirements as specified by Adobe HERE ( we recommend doubling the minimum RAM to what Adobe describes as 'recommended' level) - please note that you may be able to simply purchase more RAM storage for your computer which is the most cost effective option.
