Course Code: 21SCEDP109

Dates: May 20 - July 1, 2021

Meets: Th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM EST

Spring Tuition: $515

This course is for those who already use Photoshop and want to learn advanced professional retouching techniques. All work is done via the powerful layer, adjustment layer, smart layer, and masking functions. Students learn how to use masks and advanced compositing techniques to retouch and repair damaged photos, or seamlessly perfect images from studio sessions. We use many of the usual retouching tools-but in conjunction with layers, overlay modes, and other techniques. Workflow and organization are also covered.

Prerequisite: Intermediate Photoshop: You are familiar with the use of Photoshop. You understand working with layers, camera raw conversion, and color and tonal adjustments. You may be interested in developing experience with local adjustments, blending modes and more advanced tonal and color adjustment techniques.

Note: Adobe Photoshop is required for this course. It is also recommended that students have a Wacom tablet and stylus.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.
