The Magic of Photoshop

Photoshop is the most powerful image editing program, and this course covers the essentials for photographers.  Learn how to edit your photos from start to finish: organize and review your images in Bridge, enhance them in Camera Raw, and edit them in detail in Photoshop.  Find out how much editing is enough or too much, what artifacts are and how to avoid them, and how to prepare photos for email, web, and print.  We will be using Photoshop CC, but the basic techniques covered can be used with Photoshop versions CS3 through CS6.
