Beginning Photoshop for Teens with Maria Perkovic
Photoshop is a powerful and essential program for the digital photographer. In this course, students will learn how to use the Adobe Photoshop interface and access its expansive set of features. Topics covered include color and exposure controls, selective editing, digital compositing and Photoshop filters. Other advanced manipulations, such as editing in black and white and creating digital panoramic photographs, will also be explored.
By the completion of this course, students will know how to:
• Edit digital photographs to achieve accurate color and exposure.
• Selectively edit particular portions of an image using Photoshop’s selection tools.
• Create a digital composite using two or more different images.
• Create and edit Photoshop layers.
• Convert a color image to a black & white photograph.
• Create a digital panoramic photograph using student’s original photographs.
• Prepare a photograph for high quality printing.
Students should bring some of their own photographic images to class, as we will be editing extensively during both sessions. Basic computing and photography skills required.
This course will be taught in JDPW's digital lab. Students will have their own workstation equipped with a 27" iMac computer loaded with Photoshop CS6. Bamboo Pen & Touch digital tablets will be available if needed. Although participants will be learning using Photoshop CS6, the skills taught are cross-platform to earlier versions of Photoshop.
