This is a 3 day workshop:  Taught by Irene Hink-Sacilotto

Thursday & Friday February 7-8 from 6:30-9:30 PM  each day

Sunday February 10th from 1-4 PM

Limited class size for personalized instruction – maximum 10 students.  Pre-registration is required.

In this class you will learn digital editing skills using Adobe Photoshop Elements 10, and the newest version Photoshop Elements 11, the basic computer editing program used by most non-pro photographers. It is designed as a refresher course for those who attended the previous photo editing class at NBG this summer and those who have rudimentary knowledge of the program but wish to learn more. Both the Organizer module used to load, tag, rate, & locate images and the Editor will be covered. Included is information on cropping, straightening, reducing noise, and sharpening images plus adjusting contrast, exposure, and color saturation. Tips include how to create and use selections; remove distractions; add text; alter file size for e-mail, web, and print applications; and utilize layers and masks. Instruction is based on Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 Software & PC Computers. Students should be familiar with rudimentary PC and digital camera operation.
Time has been set aside between Friday evening and Sunday afternoon to allow participants the opportunity to practice techniques discussed in class on their own and to bring questions to class. With the small class size, the instructor will be able to customize instruction for individual needs.
Bring to class a PC based laptop computer and a card reader with a USB connector suitable for transferring images from your memory card to your computer. Have available approximately 20 images from which you can choose several to edit. Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 or 11 should be installed on your computer.  Students should be familiar with rudimentary PC and digital camera operation.
