Other information

We expect that you can confidently and quickly navigate the computer directory and be able to locate files with ease. Adobe apps are professional-level software and an inability to use a computer confidently will restrict you from progressing in the class. If you are unsure about your computer competency, please contact Customer Service so that we can arrange a call to discuss.
  • This is a crash course in Adobe Photoshop, the course facilitator will aim to fit as much in as possible but some of the above might not be covered in time. If you have a specific aspect of the program you are interested in learning then please let the tutor know.
