Photoshop is an essential tool when it comes to digital image manipulation software. This workshop aims to introduce Photoshop’s simple interface and its commonly used tools as a way to inspire workshop participants. After an introduction to the software’s key features, the participants will learn about some of the more advanced functions such as masks, the creation of GIF images, and 3D effects. They will also learn shortcuts to encourage a quick working method right from the start. Participants will receive a folder with links to relevant websites, a list of shortcuts, and notes on the steps for each exercise so that they may continue their learning.
