Digital photography isn't always just about taking images, it can also be about editing, enhancing and sharing them.

Learning how to use image-editing software will not only improve your photos, but can also be used to manage and organise them through an efficient digital workflow.

This intensive and fun photo/image editing workshop is designed for complete beginners with no or little knowledge and is aimed at those who are struggling with the digital process, giving them an understanding of where to start.

Through demonstrations and hands-on tuition your tutor will help you get to grips with the basic key tools within Photoshop Elements; covering from the initial downloading and processing RAW/Jpeg file types, through the image-editing stage to sharpening, resizing and saving files to output for print and on-screen.

If time allows you will be able to work on your own images with guidance from your tutor.

The techniques and knowledge you will learn on this workshop can also be used in other image-editing programmes such as Picasa, GIMP and may other free or online software.

This workshop covers:
* Steps for a simple digital workflow
* Downloading, managing & storing photos, adding tags
* Basic photo enhancement techniques: colour & tone  adjustment, cropping,       straightening
* Creating a Photomerge from multiple images
