Understanding Layers

It’s a basic concept; placing combinations of pixels atop one another. We’ll take it several steps further by learning about selections and channels.

Perfect for the busy student or professional

No homework or exams – just progressively repetitive lessons which make efficient use of time. The goal is everyone leaves class feeling empowered by a well designed curriculum. Using humor, puns, and creative teaching methods, Otto will get Photoshop skills embedded in your psyche!

Tabs, Tools, and Icons

User interfaces always have an array of symbols and menus, it’s like modern hieroglyphics! But that’s one of the added benefits of this class – you’ll become fluent in the language of contemporary graphic design. Many tools in Photoshop are also found in other programs. Exercises in this class introduce universal concepts found in other software and even other industries like Fashion, Engineering, and Audio Production, just to name a few.

Photo manipulation and cleanup

In addition to assembling graphics with imagery, Photoshop also provides a robust set of tools for enhancing photography. Change the mood and control the viewer’s emotional response with color correction tools and channel manipulation!

Hands on, limited seating, for all ages

All lessons are in a lab setting. Computers and software are provided, so just show up! With a small class size, everyone is guaranteed to get personal attention. Students will start clicking in Photoshop from the first minute of class.
