Introduction to Editing Digital Photographs


In this course, students will learn how to edit digital photographs using Adobe Photoshop. We’ll cover the basics of image processing, including tonal adjustment, color correction, noise reduction, sharpening, dust and scratch removal, and changing resolution. Students are encouraged to bring their own photos to class as we learn how to prepare images for printing, video, and websites. You will learn how to copyright your work and how to organize and manage your photo collection. As time and interest permit, we will cover how to convert color to black-and-white images (the right way), how to create panoramas from multiple shots, how to remove or add elements to a photo, and how to create scripts in Photoshop to speed up repetitive work.
