Join Adobe Certified Instructor Blake Taylor for this intensive 5-week, hands-on class that will introduce you to the latest version of Adobe Photoshop CC!

You'll learn how to open up Photoshop and how to bring a Raw image into Photoshop by way of Camera Raw, as well as the basics of image enhancements.

Once you are comfortable with the basics, you will begin to learn more advanced techniques, from creating selections and masks in order to enhance just parts of a photo, to learning about blending modes, to creating adjustment layers.
