Hero Shot For PS & Printing

Printing with Adobe Photoshop CC

Event info

This series of 6 workshops takes the intermediate printer through the various stages of printing an image using the Photoshop CC application, looking at the different options and their impact on the final result.

Following on from the successful Photoshop and Flowers series run by Celia Henderson LRPS, Roger Crocombe ARPS is offering two additional modules as a single programme. Module 1 focusses on colour theory as applied to printing, paper choices and their impact on the printer’s ability to reproduce colours through Soft Proofing. Module 2 focusses on tuning the Photoshop parameters and the image to make the most of your print.

Each module is delivered through three mini 75 minute  workshops. The price is for both modules and includes materials, as well as access to the Zoom recordings of each session to enable you to learn at your own pace.

The demonstrations are focussed on the subscription based Adobe Photoshop CC, although most techniques equally apply to other Photographic Editors

The 6 workshops are run over the course of two weeks.
