Photoshop level 1

This Photoshop course is an in-depth introduction to CC, aimed primarily at photographers. Taught in Photofusion’s cutting edge digital suite in Brixton, London, participants will learn the most commonly used commands and techniques to improve images and also how to utilise some of the more creative effects. This course will be of more benefit to you if you have access to a computer with Photoshop outside of the class in order to practice the skills you will learn.

You should be able to use a computer efficiently. Please contact us if you unsure about this. At Photofusion we only use Apple Macintosh computers. PC users need not worry as Photoshop is near identical in Mac or PC. The first 15 minutes of the class is used to familiarise users to Mac commands.
