Introduction to Photoshop Elements 18
We start with an overview of the amazing ways you can completely transform your images using Photoshop. We’ll review all the tools and most importantly, selections, layers and masks. Image size and image, print and screen resolution will be demystified so whether you want to post a small image to the web or make a large print, you’ll know how to save images in the right format. Understanding these fundamentals will let you dive into Photoshop and do whatever you like. And we will dive right in. The work we’ll do on images in class will start with techniques to fix the most common photo problems and then we’ll explore some very cool tricks.

Photoshop Elements 18: The Next Step
Prerequisite: Good computer skills. We will explore the more advanced creative capabilities of Photoshop. You can replace the bad expression, closed eyes or pose of a person in a group shot with a better shot of him/her from another photo. Eliminate unwanted objects. Place people on an entirely different background. Improve portraits through skin softening and by removing flaws. Selectively replace colors, colorize an entire image or color a single object in a black and white picture. And a lot more.
