For decades now, Photoshop has been the gold standard in image handling and editing software. With its endless possibilities, it can be an intimidating program for new users. In this class, we will focus on the most useful tools in the program for artists looking to save, share, and print images of their work. File formats and their uses, metadata, nondestructive editing, color adjustments, and proper resizing are just a few concepts we will explore. Access to the software during class is not necessary; students will receive a pdf download of our main points and are encouraged to take notes!
