Digital Photography for the Totally Clueless #3
(Beginning photo correction)

So you've bought your camera, started taking and printing photos now you're wondering what to do with all those less-than-perfect digital shots.

In this hands-on class, we'll learn the essential features of Adobe Photoshop Elements to adjust photos, as well as crop them (uh-oh, Uncle Louie got into the photo again this year, didn't he!) and make low-resolution versions to email to grandparents or post on your personal website.

This is a short, one-day class that covers the essentials of Photoshop Elements. Topics include adjusting lighting and contrast, removing color-casts, cropping photos, making hi-resolution versions for printing, and making low-resolution versions for email and websites. You'll also get the chance to print a photo or two on our inkjet printers.
