Are you interested in learning about photo editing and visual design? This workshop is aimed at beginners looking to get their feet wet in the world of photo editing. This will be a live synchronous course that teaches students the topics and techniques that professionals in the industry use such as: working with layers, image selections, filters / effects and more. We will be using the free, but powerful, browser based software PhotoPea.

Students will come out of the course with a collection of editing enhanced personal photos. Students will also get final tips and feedback from a special guest professional photographer Brad Polt-Jones during the last class session.

This will be a live synchronous course. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device.
