My Adobe photoshop course is a full day event from 9am to 4pm, and costs R1999.00. This course is probably my best value for money course due to the added extras. Students are taken through the entire program during the day with theory and a lot of practical excrcises to improve understanding.This course has a maximum sitting of 2 people per course. We start with how best to download your images from camera, how to catalogue them, on to Bridge where images are sorted, from bridge onto adobe camera raw, diting in raw, and finally onto photoshop where images are imported from camera raw, edited and finally saved for viewing. In photoshop students are shown and practically get to use all the tools, taken through the menu in photoshop, and then onto layers.  The day ends in kearning how to use the filters available. Some of the topics covered are :
