Photoshop Elements Editing – The Basics and Beyond......
You take good photographs but to make them great photographs you often need to 'make' the end result through digital processing. This is particularly true if you shoot in RAW format. (If you currently don't shoot in RAW, I would hope that by the end of this course I will persuade you that you should!) This course will help you harness the power of Photoshop Elements as a post-capture editing tool.
To some extent the course will be dovetailed to match your specific needs. However, basic (and some advanced) features of Elements will be covered, as described below.
These will include how to transfer images to your computer, organise your photographs, and back-up your images for safe-keeping.
There will be an overview of the Tools within Elements as well as tips on how to use the Quick and Guided Edit Modes.
However the course will be focussed on using the Full Edit Mode and learning how to get the most from it.
GETTING TO GRIPS WITH RAW
I will be encouraging you to capture your images in RAW and so we will look at processing images in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) which comes with the Elements software.
