Essential Photoshop—Photo Editing Beyond the Scope of Lightroom

Mary Louise Ravese, Bella Vista Photography

Wednesdays, August 4, 11, 18, and 25 and September 1 – 6:30 pm–8:30 pm

Adobe Lightroom Classic is a fantastic tool for photo editing, however, it does have its limits and there are tasks that are simply beyond its scope. Fortunately, Adobe Photoshop is there to step in and accomplish those more sophisticated tasks. This class teaches you the essentials of Photoshop specifically so you can accomplish more advanced tasks like:

  • More sophisticated selections
  • More advanced content-aware adjustments like fill, move, scale, etc.
  • Combining editing effects from multiple app programs
  • Localizing adjustments from multiple app programs
  • Blending two or more images, whether for HDR, selective colorization of a B&W image, adding a texture overlay, or another reason

Mary Louise teaching class

This class assumes you are already using a tool like Adobe Lightroom to do your basic photo editing. It is for when you have to use Photoshop to address an issue that goes beyond the scope of Lightroom. This approach makes learning Photoshop more manageable and relevant to photo editing problem solving.

Class will be split over multiple zoom-based sessions to make content easier to digest and to allow for practice between sessions. Sessions are live and interactive, but will be recorded for later playback. There are optional homework assignments to help reinforce concepts in a practical, real world context.

Class Resources

Recordings of each class will be made available to class participants as private YouTube shares.
