Week 1

In the first lesson, we'll dive into a workflow for digital editing so you can get a good idea of the options available and a sequence to follow. Then, we'll look at tools you can use to perfect portraits. You’ll learn to smooth away wrinkles with the Surface Blur filter, remove red eye, and even turn gray hair brown!

Week 2

In this lesson, you'll see how to slim a waistline, trim loose edges, and accentuate the positive with distortion tools. You'll also find out how to correct an image by combining parts of two different photos, and you'll have a chance to get creative with the many brushes available in Photoshop. Then, we'll turn to the task of restoring old and damaged photographs.

Week 3

In this lesson, we'll explore advanced ways to use text, special effects, and layers. You'll master the art of creating text from images and building multilayer documents with sophisticated edging for both text and image components to draw your viewer's attention right where you want it. Then, explore Photoshop’s countless special effects and filters that you can use to show off your images. You'll also see how to sharpen and blur photos as well as how to salvage an image with miraculous fixes!

Week 4

In this lesson, you'll see how layers work from beginning to end. You'll build a quickly modifiable business card and a collage as you learn how to use Adjustment and Fill layers to your advantage. You’ll also see how to add patterns, blend layers with colors and effects, and group them for great framing options using Photoshop's tabbed windowing feature.

Week 5

In this lesson, we'll explore the fun and fantastic features of advanced Photoshop editing. You'll see how to patch, clone, fill, and even work magical proportional adjustments with the high-end repair tools Photoshop provides. Then, panoramics are a beautiful way to show off wide scenic shots, and you'll see how Photoshop helps you blend these to provide seamless imagery. You'll also learn how to add colored borders to make your images just the size you want. With all these options under your belt, you'll see how to create customized photo cards with your own captions and add watermarks to protect your images.

Week 6

Learn how to create dazzling images from ordinary ones using Photoshop's HDR Processing tools. You'll see how to combine several images to get the best exposure from each one, and you'll learn how to create the effects of multiple-image combinations from just one original. And finally, you'll see real-life applications for the tools and features we've discussed in class, and you'll discover ways to put the class material to work on your own images.
