The Adobe Photoshop beginners course is designed for anyone who has just started using Photoshop and would like to improve their skills quickly. The one day Photoshop Course intended to teach a variety of different retouching and editing techniques using layers, cloning, brightness, contrast, colour and tonal adjustments.  It is a hands on course which gives practical tuition working with the software to produce a finished image. Because the course is one to one, I can work at your pace and you can choose what you would like to learn. I can provide the course content onsite for individuals or small groups.
