Course description

Our Photoshop Summer School is aimed at complete beginners and covers the complete foundations of Adobe Photoshop. Delivered in the day and in a relaxed and professional classroom environment, participants will be taught via a combination of theory and practical, and will work from the comfort of their own laptops. The main catagories covered are Workflow, the RAW Coverter (ACR), making Adjustment Layers and Non-Destructive Retouching.

Participants will begin by learning how to improve the visual quality of their image by making fundamental edits. These include improving the tonal range, adjusting the brightness, contrast, hue, saturation and using a variety of tools and adjustments, as well as the basics of cloning to remove unwanted elements in an image.

The second half of the course will go into key areas such as non-destructive retouching, working with adjustment layers, cloning in layers, organising the layer stack, keyboard shortcuts and the workspace. There is also a focus on fundamental editing skills, such as colour with curves, layer masks and selective corrections. All editing will be taught with image quality in mind.

    ‘I took the Photoshop Foundation Level 1 and have really enjoyed it. It was a phenomenal introductory into Photoshop for me as a beginner. I hope to be able to take with you some other courses in the near future.’
    ★★★★★  Max Blau

    ‘Mikael was a great tutor, and both the content and delivery were fantastic – well-paced, thorough and with plenty of opportunity to try things out and to ask questions at every stage. I’ll definitely be back for part 2’
    ★★★★★  Cathy Pyle

    ‘Easy booking, great having reminder emails and easy instructions leading up to the course, course was very personal, friendly instructor and overall brilliantly run!’
    ★★★★★  Tom Pointer

    ‘I really enjoyed the Photoshop Foundation. The studio was lovely, the class size was small and it was a good combination of teaching and hands-on, practical tasks. I never thought I'd be able to produce images like that so quickly and I've already utilised the skills in my job. I'm extremely tempted to book for Level 2 and would recommend Level 1 for everyone.’
    ★★★★★  Donna Marie Howard
