Adobe Photoshop CS 6
Have you ever seen photographs that were ripped or faded, then perfectly restored and wondered, how they did that?  Perhaps you have marveled at the way a portrait can be transformed to make the subject appear 10 years’ younger or how people can be added or deleted to a scene.  This course will cover batch processing images, advanced masking techniques, special effects and filters. We will explore the exciting possibilities in High Dynamic Range Photography (HDR), the current creative trend in image manipulation.
