Basic Photoshop for Design | April 25th, 7:00pm 

In this class we will cover a range of Photoshop skills used for design. The class will go a step beyond the fundamentals to delve more deeply into the power of Photoshop as a tool for digital design. We will work with layers to create composite images, using blending modes and layer effects. We’ll learn about non-destructive editing using Smart Objects, as well as basic masking techniques. We’ll look at the typography tools in Photoshop and options for printing projects, or exporting images for use online.
