Course Description

Photoshop - Understanding Layers

One of the most versatile aspects of Photoshop is how to use and understand Layers.


Layers are basically a series of individual “pages” that can be edited, modified and enhanced that can be added to the original without affecting the original image.

Each Layer is totally separate and can be used to build up a composite image.


Layers can be added automatically when certain tools or filters are selected or as created as independent features.


The course will guide you around the key aspects of using Layers in Photoshop Elements.


In order to understand Layers the course will include practical exercises to help you improve and develop your Photoshop skills.


Please bring along:

Blank Memory Stick, note book and pen.

Exercise images and work handouts are included in the course programme.

A Memory Stick is essential as work cannot be saved directly to the college lap tops.
