• Important to know
Registration must be made at https://learningcodeyegphotoediting.eventbrite.ca in order to attend.

• What we'll do
Wouldn't it be great if you could take that "almost perfect" photo and fix something that bothered you about it? The possibilities are endless when you're working in Photoshop and we can teach you what you need to know to touch up your photos or completely rework them to create something new.

We'll start with the basics: how to do simple touch ups, improve colours and get the photos ready for print or web. We'll also go into some of the more advanced stuff like working with layer masks to combine images for a cool result! You know that viral Tyrannosaurus Rex wedding photobomb? We’ll teach you how it’s done!

What will you have learned by the end of this workshop?

- An overview of Photoshop, the workspace and the different tools
