"Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 Fundamentals" is a comprehensive 2 day course that covers Photoshop essentials while providing countless tips and techniques to help you become more productive while using the tool.


This course includes in-depth training on core introductory, intermediate and even advanced Photoshop CC 2017 topics to provide a solid foundation for any type of post-class Photoshop work that a student will engage in. The class material is delivered at a brisk pace but adequate time is provided for the instructor to thoroughly cover all topics and for students to complete all hands-on exercises.



Because of the amount of material we cover in this class, we do require students to be comfortable using a mouse, opening and saving files, and the general operations of computers. We highly recommend working with the application tutorial before coming to the course.
