Photoshop Thursday 27th October 5.30pm Library Computer Centre

This weeks IT Twilight class in the Library Computer Centre will be about
Photoshop: glamour images, depth of field and high dynamic range



From the days of George Hurrell in the 30s & 40s, glamour photography has

used some manual enhancements. Originally airbrushed by skilled artists like
Bob Nesbitt, these manipulations have now been taken to a new level using
digital techniques. In this class we will explore the powerful capabilities
of Photoshop to assist you with creating visuals, manipulating and enhancing
images and montaging files.
