Adobe Photoshop CS6 / CC – Touch-up Tools and Image Adjustment

Adobe Photoshop Advanced Course Summary 

This LiveOnline class teaches some of the creative aspects of Photoshop. Students will learn image adjustment techniques such as how to brighten photos, change contrast, balance colors, change exposure, highlight colors, and create photo filters. We will use tools to fix problems on an image such as healing, correction, or clone stamping. We will discover techniques to mask objects, warp text, and other special effects. Using a combination of commands, we will generate new possibilities and help students develop new skills. Many of the features are similar to CS4 and CS5; therefore, don’t hesitate to attend due to the differences in versions. If you do not have the application installed on the computer, please just give us a call to help install an evaluation version. Note: The documentation supports both Adobe Suite CS6 (Version 11) and Adobe Suite CC (Version 12.)
