Understand the fundamentals of editing your digital images. Learn the "layers-based" method, using Photoshop® Elements 11. Techniques used will work in earlier versions of Elements from 7 through 10, as well as the full version Photoshop (CS4, 5,6) and other layers-based programs. Lightroom and Aperture are not suitable for this approach.
All levels of experience welcome, but those with Elements or Photoshop and a basic working knowledge of computers, files, file organization and common program conventions will gain the most benefit. This is not a "hands-on" computer lab but a live demonstration presentation as the instructor illustrates the techniques. You are welcome to bring your own laptop to follow along, but it is not a requirement.
