Learn popular tools, editing, and adjustment in Photoshop Bootcamp

Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements are very popular photo editing software. Both programs have many things in common; Photoshop CC or CS is the full version with lots of controls and Photoshop Elements is designed with a more user friendly interface. Some of the differences between Photoshop CC or CS and Photoshop Elements are reviewed in this article.

Our Photoshop Bootcamp is 18 hours of class time in a four week program and gives you an overview of all the popular tools and menus in Photoshop. It is completely hands-on which means you are going to start working on images right from the very first session.

I personally learn faster by participation, which is why I developed our Photoshop Bootcamp as a hands-on workshop.

Here is sample of a photo without any retouching.

Although it looks quite nice, notice how much better it gets when I add a little contrast and adjust the Levels in Photoshop.

Just few adjustment and enhancement made such a big difference.

It is a simple fact that all digital photos benefit from a practical editing workflow. Photoshop and Photoshop Elements are the most popular choice among photographers at all skill levels.

Do I need a laptop for this class?

Yes. All students must have basic computer skills and either a Mac or a PC. Students are required to bring their own laptops already installed with Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. (A trial version of Photoshop Elements is available for download for PC and Mac from the Adobe website. Be sure to check system requirements first.)
