Photoshop CS5 & CS6: The Power to Create

Class Description

Adobe® Photoshop® CS6 software further enhances Photoshop's digital imaging imaging tools from its earlier version CS5. In just one weekend you'll learn to to use CS5 and CS6 to optimize the appearance of your images using Camera Raw, remove distractions with the Content-Aware Healing Brush, and size and sharpen images for print or the web. Additionally, Steve Bye will show the power of layers, Photoshop's most powerful tool.

Focusing on the essential features of Adobe Photoshop CS5, this workshop demonstrates how this powerful program can be used to satisfy the basic requirements of a photographer. During the workshop, Steve Bye guides participants through the digital workflow process that Photoshop CS5 and CS6 are recognized for.

Starting with Photoshop’s Bridge utility, participants explore all the important features it offers, from organizing and managing images. Next, participants process images in Photoshop’s Camera Raw Converter, and examine the pros and cons of working with RAW and JPEG file formats. Steve Bye covers the best techniques and shortcuts for image enhancing, retouching, white balancing, color adjusting, black-and-white conversion, sharpening, and working with selections. Last, Steve Bye will show the power of layers to create composites and make adjustments to very specific areas of an image.

Combining hands-on demonstrations with step-by-step instruction, Steve Bye provides participants with practical photographic applications for working with Photoshop.

Using sample photographs, participants practice processing images through final output. Participants come away from the workshop with Photoshop skills that enable them to independently process and optimize their imagery and photographic vision.

We want to offer classes in the version of software that people can buy. CS5 is no longer available so we will be using CS6. However, there is very little in the class that has changed from CS5 to CS6. You would be able to do 95% of the class content in CS5.

Class Requirements

Participants must have a solid working knowledge of computers, prior knowledge of Photoshop CS4 is helpful, but not required.

About the Instructor

Instructor Photo

Steve Bye: After shutting down his wet darkroom many years ago, Steve's interest in photography was rekindled when the first photo inkjet printers became available. Though their quality at the time was not very good, digital photography using inkjet printers seemed worth investigating. Now, fifteen years later, Steve is an Adobe Certified Instructor of Photoshop. Steve's strength as a teacher is in explaining difficult concepts in easily understandable ways, a skill learned while at Hewlett-Packard as a trainer, engineer, and R&D project manager.
