Photoshop Elements: A Workshop

This course is intended for the person who uses (or wants to learn to use) Photoshop Elements and desires to improve editing skills and know more about Element's features and capabilities. The course will be presented in the style of a workshop: participants will be given a set of digital images to edit using their own laptops, while the instructor’s laptop will be projected, allowing participants to follow along. The major editing tools in Photoshop Elements will be covered and used during the workshop. Please Note: Practice at home between sessions, or registering for Photoshop Elements: Lab Session (Course A404), is strongly encouraged. Most previous students have said  they thought the lab sessions were essential, and I urge you to give serious consideration to registering for the lab as a supplement to the workshop. Also comply with Required Materials for this workshop listed under the course on the OLLI online registration website.

Instructor Bio:

Bob Stroud is a retired attorney.  He has been a lecturer at Washington and Lee University and its law school, the Darden School of Business, the UVa School of Law, and Virginia State Bar continuing legal education program for lawyers. He has had a longtime interest in both photography and computers.  He also teaches the periodic OLLI course “Digital Photography: From Camera to Presentation.”

Required Reading:

Prerequisites: Participants will be expected to bring to each session a laptop with Photoshop Elements pre-installed. (You may use Elements Premier which includes video editing but this workshop will not cover video editing).  The instructor will be using version 18 (which, as of the date of this description, is the current version).  Participants who will not have the current version likely will be frustrated, since older versions will not have many of the tools and features we will explore and may not even look the same on the screen.  The workshop is not suited for a person who has great difficulty using a computer. The instructor will be using a MAC but PC users are welcome, since Photoshop Elements is essentially the same for both platforms from Elements Version 9 onwards.
