I like taking pictures with my camera, and wanted to know how to edit them using the different features of Photoshop. The course was great! I learned about so many different tools. I also gained a greater understanding of photography and editing as a whole. Very impressed and would definitely recommend. Thank you!
As a photo editor I need basic Photoshop skills as publications have come to expect this. I learnt all the basics and the tutor was very thorough. I would definitely recommend this course.
I wanted to learn all the photoshop tools and see how I could make the end photo look better. I enjoyed the course and learnt a lot. There was a lot of information, so it feels like I might need some time to let it all sink in. I will definitely recommend it to others!
I’m quite confident with my camera, but not yet with how to edit the pictures. I wanted to be able to get more out of my images and improve the final effect. Today’s course was really good and I’ve learnt a lot about the basics and how to use the tools. Now it’s just down to practicing!
