I just took the greatest pictures with my digital camera. Now what do I do?

Have you ever wondered how to deal with the umpteen hundred photos you just took? How to make a photo a little less washed out? How to remove the telephone pole that you didn’t notice before you pressed the shutter? If so, then the classes described below are for you.

At each class we work on your images so that you have the necessary skills to edit your photographs. These are hands-on classes, so bring your enthusiasm, laptop, several images to work on, USB key and extension cord; and prepare to have fun! Lightroom classes use Lightroom CC/6; Photoshop/Photoshop Elements classes use Photoshop CC and Photoshop Elements 12/13/14.
