Casa dei Giovani - Querceta

Basic Photoshop Course

by Marian Vanzetto

The Basic Photoshop Course is directed to people who are familiar with a basic usage of computers, but do not know about professional photo-retouching programs.

We will learn how to use Adobe Photoshop, one of the best software for handling the complete post-production phase in digital photography.

In this course we will study and make practice on all the main tools that are used to reprocess a photography or any image.

Each participant will have to carry their personal computer (PC or MAC) where the Adobe Photoshop program is installed (preferably, CS4 or newer versions).

Each class will be both theoretical and practical: we will constantly exercise on each of the presented tools.

About the end of the course, there will be a test on the whole material presented,

Aimed at verifying and fixing possible mistakes or misunderstandings, so to improve the skills of each participant.


The 10 weekly classes are scheduled as follows:
