Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud
Have you ever seen photographs that were ripped or faded, then perfectly restored and wondered, how did they do that? Perhaps you have marveled at the way a portrait can be transformed to make the subject matter 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. Photoshop Creative Cloud has become an essential tool for professional and amateur photographers and is considered to be "Today’s Darkroom".  To take this class, students are required to use MCC issued software.  Log-in information and access instructions will be emailed to the student a few days before the class start date.  Personal/Home software is not permitted $209
