ABOUT PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS: This class uses the latest version of Photoshop Elements, an affordable, streamlined version of Photoshop Cloud (formerly Photoshop CS6). For a comparison of products in the Photoshop family, please click here.

Adobe has made the same commitment to professional quality results but their emphasis is on the average user vs. a media professional who may need more granular control.  I would say the main difference is that tools and panels are operated using knobs, sliders and text boxes, i.e. the process of making the edits is easier (and better IMHO). The software typically costs around $65 vs. about $600 for a legal copy of Photoshop CS6.

Most importantly, what you learn in Photoshop Elements can be easily applied to other versions of Photoshop as the main editing area looks and functions in the same way.

HOW: Pre-register now so that you can be assured a seat! Go to Admissions on the first floor of the Downtown campus at 4th & Mission (one block south of Powell BART). If the class is full, come the first day and the instructor can register you.
