The London Photographers’ Branch is looking for a tutor to deliver a one-day Photoshop course in January 2011. The course outline (below) was drawn up following a survey of branch members earlier this year. Anyone interested in teaching it should email firstname.lastname@example.org, including details of relevant experience, by the 13th December.
Essential Photoshop For Photojournalists
A one-day course which will demonstrate how to use Photoshop, Bridge and Adobe Camera RAW (the three linked programmes that make up Adobe Photoshop) to:
- make basic corrections to brightness, contrast and colour balance to out-of-camera RAW files (using ACR) and JPEGs (using adjustment layers)
- make local adjustments to parts of an image
- rename, batch caption and keyword images
- set up a batch resizing action
It will also cover the basic elements of good workflow, including file naming, image storage and back-up.
The course is aimed specifically at photojournalists, and will not explore methods of gross image manipulation that might be employed by commercial photographers or graphic designers.
