Photoshop Basics

Photoshop has become a verb, like Google, or run. It’s a part of our cultural lexicon. We don’t say, “that photo’s fake”- we say “that photo’s been Photoshopped.” 

You can work Photoshop magic on your own digital photos. If you’re interested in erasing someone from a photo, transforming an animal, or learning about how to actually make your digital photos better, come to our Photoshop Basics class! 

We’re going to cover some fundamental concepts, like brightness and contrast, but we’re also going to dig a little bit deeper and talk about masking layers and the clone stamp tool. If you don’t know what those are, don’t worry. You don’t need to know a thing about Photoshop to attend the class.

Photoshop isn’t just about face swaps though. If you’re a photographer or an aspiring graphic designer, Photoshop is an essential skill. If you come to class and get a taste for Photoshop, our Makerspace, ideaLAB, has the full version available free for public use. 

Here are all the details for the class!

Do we bring our own computer and photoshop, or is it using the DPL computer and DPL software?
