  • This seven-week course is designed for the photographer desiring to acquire skills necessary to digitally manipulate image files.  While every photo and every photographer is different, it is no exaggeration to say that, in the vast majority of cases, using Photoshop can improve any image.  Used by professionals and non-professionals alike, Photoshop is the ultimate playground for bringing out the best in your digital images and transforming them into anything you can imagine! Although Photoshop CC is a deep and powerful program, its benefits are immediately accessible to the motivated beginner given its most user friendly features first and shown the correct path going forward.  Students will be guided to improve their images of people, nature, landscape, architecture, products, etc. to yield maximum impact, detail, and technical quality in an efficient and nondestructive manner.  Students who complete the course will be well grounded in the most important and powerful features of Photoshop even if they own a previous version.  MPW/s computer lab is equipped with Windows based computers.  For Mac users, this is only the difference of a couple of keystrokes.  Class size is limited so that a small student/instructor ratio ensures individual attention. The majority of each class session concentrates on working with high-end image files in Photoshop, assisted by the instructor. 

    Classes are interspersed with brief theory sessions in which new concepts are introduced and discussed.  This is immediately followed by computer lab time where students are provided with customized Photoshop exercises to demonstrate the theory behind making great images.  The instructor is available to answer questions about class work or individual needs.  The class includes a bonus all-day session to allow students to apply the Photoshop techniques learned in class to their own images and make exhibition grade prints using MPW’s Epson printers. 

    Photoshop is the most powerful photo editing software available, but it is not for everyone.  MPW assumes that students have basic computer skills and photographic experience/knowledge.


    If your computer skills are not strong, please contact MPW so we can determine if the determination if you would be a good candidate for a Photoshop class.  Students ideally have a copy of any version of Photoshop CS for use at home to practice techniques learned in class.
