Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 or 12 for Windows/Mac (software must be installed and fully operational before the course begins); Windows 7 / Vista / XP, Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
Due to a significant change in the look and menu appearance of Photoshop Elements 11 and 12, students with earlier versions of the software should upgrade to Photoshop Elements 11 or 12 before starting this course. Instructions, screenshots, and examples all rely heavily on specific instructions for version 11 (minor changes for version 12 noted in the text).
Note: This course is written with the Windows version of the software. Mac students are welcome, but will need to make standard Windows/Mac keystroke conversions—many of which are included in the course material. Teaching staff has Mac software and equipment available and can help troubleshoot with Mac students to complete course material if necessary.
