Course Summary

This course has been developed from my teachings at both Humber College and Guelph-Humber University in their Creative Photography Programs both daytime and evening degree, diploma and certificate programs. This basic course in Adobe Photoshop CS6 starts right at the very beginning assuming that the learner has no experience in the application. Starting with Adobe Camera Raw and Bridge workflows to setting up the Photoshop workspace and Preferences to making and modifying selections, to fully understanding what Layers are and how to use them effectively, to colour correcting image to finally learning how to use Photoshop's main retouching tools to retouch and repair images.

The course materials included in this Photoshop CS6 course are video tutorials, image files related to the videos so you can follow along and a PDF workbook with step by step instructions which may explain topics slightly different than the videos.

Each Section in this Photoshop CS6 tutorials should take approximately 1.5 hours to complete and is structured so that you may read the PDF first to get an understanding of the topics that will be delivered in the video and then practice with the supplied image file(s).

If you have ever wanted to learn Photoshop from the ground up, so to speak, then this is the best starting point. Have you ever worked on your images only to find that they do not look right once you have either sent them to friends via email or uploaded then on-line to image galleries. There is a reason for that happening and you will learn how to control these issues in this Photoshop CS6 tutorials course.

Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Bridge

Course Summary

So you have taken the next step in your digital photography adventure by shooting in the Raw file format but don't quite understand what all those tabs, buttons and sliders do for your image. This course will explain in detail the W5 of Adobe Camera Raw. No stone will be left unturned in explaining the effects and workflow.

Realistically, this course should take about 2 - 3 weeks to complete. You can certainly complete this course in less time if you have the time but most people have very busy lives these days so I am anticipating just less than a month to complete provided that you stick with it and practice with your own files what is covered in the videos.

At first I will give a brief overview of the software and then I go into all of the dirty details in a logical order so you end up with the best possible image from your Raw file.
This course has been developed, improved and modified over the last decade for my College and University students and is now being offered to you.
