What you will learn

The first day will focus on an introduction into basic photo editing, including the more common programs such as iPhoto and Adobe Photoshop Elements. However the aim of the course is the basics of editing which are applicable to any program, rather than learning how to use a specific program.

On the second day, we will start with an overview of the types of editing tools found in most editing programs and review Hagen's workflow. The second half will be spent walking through examples on red-eye reduction and dealing with dark or bright photos.

Most of the third day will be spent walking through more examples: washed-out colours, specks and blemishes, and more.

The last day will start with adding simple artistic flair to your images to enhance them: B&W, sepia and vignette. The day will finish with preparing your images for email and printing.

What to bring

A notepad, sharp pencils or pens, enthusiasm and lots of questions. A laptop is recommended, but not required. You will receive free or demo versions of software for both Mac and Windows to take home and use.
