Adobe Photoshop training courses

Adobe Photoshop is image (pixel based pictures/graphics) editing software that allows you to create or edit digital pictures for print or the web.  It’s myriad of styles and effects that can be applied to enhance or manipulate images and animations and it’s probably best known for 'touching up' images for magazine shots (chop, crop and airbrush out those unwanted imperfections!).

For those new to Adobe Photoshop our Introduction course covers the basics (creating and manipulating digital images).  More experienced users should look to our 2-day Intermediate course for managing more complex, multi layered/3d images and batch processing.
