Class Description

Adobe Photoshop for Beginners (Level 1) is a four-part series beginner’s course designed to teach those students with little or no background in design software or manipulation of images. This course will help a beginner user to understand how to make selections, use layers effectively, what different types of images are, how to edit and manipulate images in Photoshop, and some of the other basic tools that are extremely valuable.

If you are working on digital marketing or graphic design projects, this class will show you the fundamentals that are important to any Photoshop project.  We have designed this class to cover the fundamentals of the program so that you can learn the skills you need and immediately be able to apply to your own projects.  Adobe Photoshop for Beginners includes a mix of structured activities, as well as project-based assignments.

Adobe Photoshop for Beginners is hands-on and intensive, but designed to help make difficult topics easier to understand. Your instructor, an Adobe Certified Expert, will work with you closely to make sure that you avoid common mistakes in Photoshop and apply best practices when possible.
