Learn How to Edit Your Photographs Using Adobe Photoshop

Saturday May 5th at Cromford, Derbyshire. 10.00am to 5.00pm.

Please note: the date for this course has now passed, but you can see the dates for our upcoming photography courses here.

This one day workshop is suitable for anyone wanting to learn how to use Adobe Photoshop for editing their digital photographs. While Photoshop is the most comprehensive imaging editing software available, it can appear very complex and intimidating to new users. On this course, you will learn only those parts of Photoshop that are relevant for photo editing, and the tools that can help you to do that.

Through a range of guided practical exercises, you will learn how you can use some of the automatic and manual tools within Photoshop to:

The course will be held at the Arkwright Mill in Cromford, Derbyshire, which is a fantastic old building and a world heritage site. It is easily accessible by road from Sheffield or anywhere in Derbyshire, or by rail (Cromford station is on the Derby to Matlock railway line, and only a few minutes’ walk away). The day’s training will run from 10.00am to 5.00pm, with a break for lunch (not included in the course price). There is an excellent cafe on site, or you can ring your own packed lunch if you prefer.

The price for the full day’s training will be £95.00 per person.

We will have three Apple Macs available for use, or you can ring your own laptop to work on if you prefer. The training will be aimed primarily at users of Adobe Photoshop CS4 or later, but most of it will be equally relevant to earlier versions of Photoshop.
