Fridays, September 27 – October 25, 9:30 am – 12:00 noon – Photoshop Elements Demystified

Bring your laptop and artwork to this Friends of Wellesley College Botanic Garden class on five Fridays, September 27 – October 25, from 9:30 – noon, and learn how to transform your images into finished reproductions for cards, collages and posters, as well as for the web.  With guidance from Patricia Buchanan, make color adjustments, tidy up edges and backgrounds, add a watermark, type or add other enhancements.  Solve the mystery of sizing and resolution to meet printing and exhibition submission standards.  Scanning procedures will be covered.  Mouse skills and a basic computer proficiency are required.  Note: Photoshop Elements is a more user-friendly and affordable version of the original Photoshop.  The skills you acquire with Elements are always transferable to Photoshop.  If you don’t already have Photoshop Elements, it can be downloaded for a free 30-day trial period.  Although this will not cover the entire class period, it’s a good way to begin.
