1-to-1 Photoshop Workshop Series - Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw
You have just spent hundreds of dollars on this wonderfully-sophisticated software called Adobe Photoshop. However, you are having a lot of trouble trying to figure out the complexities behind it.
You have all the manuals, reference books and cheat sheets you can lay your hands on (and buy!) but you still cannot "get it"?
You are yanking your hair in frustration. Tiredness creeps in. You have a serious brain-drain. You decide to give up. Regretful, cursing and swearing.
If the above scenario sounds like you, I have got good news! An experienced, Adobe certified (from the USA), Photoshop digital imaging professional (yours truly) from an established local photography studio will like to help you.
A wise Photoshop guru once said "Put three people in a room, give them each a computer, an image and 30 minutes, and I bet that they'll each come up with at least three ways to solve the same Photoshop problem."
The variety of approaches that Photoshop allows can at time be frustrating or invigorating, depending on how much you like to explore and experience. I want YOU to be invigoriated.
For a reasonable fee, I will show you the tips, the tricks and the shortcuts behind Photoshop.
Unlike others, this workshop does not restrict to a specific Photoshop version or computer platforms.
Lesson 1 –
Lesson 2 –
- Understanding Adobe Lightroom and Camera RAW
