Post-Processing your Photos for Professional Results
Did you know that probably 99% of professional photographers post-process their photos? Post-processing has dramatically changed over the years. Back in the non-digital age, post-processing meant taking a photo into the darkroom and adjusting exposure, color, contrast and more to get the best photo possible. In the digital world, post-processing means uploading your photos to a computer, opening them in a post-processing program and adjusting little sliders to get AMAZING results! Little changes can have the biggest impact!
this class, you will learn how to upload any digital
photo into Photoshop or Photoshop Elements and adjust
it to get the perfect exposure, color, white balance
and more. You'll learn many post-processing tricks such
as smoothing skin, swapping heads, getting the best
black-and-white effect, adding texture, creating vignettes,
preparing a photo for printing and much more. There
will also be a few bonus tips for users of Adobe Lightroom.
What this class is NOT: This class is not a digital scrapbooking, hybrid scrapbooking, or graphic design class. The functions of Photoshop are endless and could not possibly be taught in just four weeks. We will stick strictly to processing photos and discussing the basic elements that are important to photography.

Utah who worked for Digital Scrapbooking Magazine
(a subsidiary of Simple Scrapbooks Magazine), helping
to write several books and special issues on post-processing
photos and digital design. Over the last few years,

to make it quick and easy with stellar results.
In this class, she’ll show you exactly how
to do the same thing. You’ll be able to take
literally hundreds of photos and transform each
of them into amazing works of art.
