Students completing this course will gain an in-depth knowledge of how to use the defacto image manipulation software - Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud. The course leads you step-by-step from a basic understanding of the software to learning more intermediate techniques such as how to use layers, refined image enhancement, colour correction techniques and producing creative graphic outcomes.  Please note this is an introductory course to Photoshop NOT on how to use a computer therefore a basic ... sound knowledge of computers is required.

  • Digitising and importing images into Photoshop Creative Cloud using a choice of methods such as scanners, downloading from the web and copying from a CD/USB.
