Photoshop Overview

A Demonstration Workshop of Photoshop Elements Features

One, two-hour class

Fee:  None

Pre-requisites :

There are no pre-requisites for this class. Registration is not required.

Intended Audience:

The intended audience is comprised of Computer Club members who want an overview of what a photo editing program such as Adobe’s Photoshop Elements 6 will do.  This is intended as a “survey class” for those who do not yet know if they want to learn about Photoshop Elements.  The class is appropriate for both Windows and Mac users.

This will be a demonstration workshop, with no “hands-on” activity by the students.

Performance Objectives:

We will briefly demonstrate material from all of the courses taught at the Computer Club on Photoshop, and will describe briefly what each of the Club’s classes covers.

After completing this workshop the student should be able to know what Adobe Photoshop Elements Versions 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7,  can do, so that they can make a decision whether to obtain one of these programs and whether to enroll in the Photoshop Organizer or the Photoshop 1 class, which is a pre-requisite for all the other photo editing courses. There will be time for questions.

The class will be held in a meeting room.
