The Essentials of Photoshop


The use of Photoshop is often regarded as the tool of the professional and too complicated and unwieldy for many photographers to consider. This is understandable with so many image editing software platforms out there on offer, some are even free!

The aim of this workshop is to eliminate all but the essential functionality of Photoshop and cherry-pick the best tools needed for a simple but incredibly useful workflow. We fully embrace the use of Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw, but alone they don't have some of the highly useful methods that, even to this day, are only available in Photoshop itself.

If after all these years of Photoshop, you still view it as ‘over the top’ or unnecessary, then this workshop will teach you an essential set of tools and techniques that have been simplified by us over many years and many thousands of images.

Our students love us

The Essentials of Photoshop online workshop was a great experience. Very well thought out and presented and packed with spot on target, relevant information. The videos are just the right length to learn about their subject.
The course videos where well produced and instructive and I learned a lot of techniques and methods of working through Photoshop that had previously eluded me. Also, I still have the online course work to
look up and refresh the memory.

II now have the confidence and know how to amongst other things use layers and curves to make localised adjustments on images and to use content aware fill to remove distractions from images. Also, I can straighten horizons, remove halos and use layer masks. Money well spent.
