ABOUT PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS: This class uses Photoshop Elements 13. 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. 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. The software typically costs around $70.

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: Enroll as a CCSF student then pre-register now so that you can be assured a seat! Or go to Admissions on the first floor of the Downtown campus at 4th & Mission (one block south of Powell BART).
