Adobe Photoshop for Photographers Training

Los Angeles Adobe Photoshop for Photographers Training

Photoshop for Photographers

This class is geared for amateur and professional photographers. We will concentrate on work flow habits, indexing your images, developing and fixing them using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom.

Creating composites, retouching using Adobe Photoshop, Bridge and Adobe Lightroom. Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® software is essential for today's digital photography workflow.

Now you can quickly import, process, manage, and showcase your images — from one shot to an entire shoot. With Lightroom 3, you spend less time in front of the computer and more time behind the lens.
