Last night kicked off our June Photoshop evening workshops and what a great kick-off it was! Hosted at the amazing George Brown College Game Design Centre, our first workshop of the three was an Introduction to Photoshop: Photo Editing. After a pizza dinner, lead instructor Angelica Ramos and mentors Ryan Bannon and Erin Morris turned the classroom into a flurry of Photoshop activity – before long the learners were “photoshopping” everything from removing the background in an image to getting rid of Lindsay Lohan’s flyaway hairs.
The workshop covered how to use Photoshop tools such as the magic wand, crop tool, and pen tool, just to name a few. By the end of the workshop our learners discovered how to crop photos, change the background, remove wrinkles, and more! Here’s what our learners had to say:

Are you sad you missed it? Well you’re in luck because we’ll be running two more Photoshop workshops next Wednesday and the Wednesday after that. All three workshops are stand-alone Introductions to Photoshop, with different projects a focus. Come to one, two or all three of these events! Next week’s focusses on Creating a Personalized Photo Banner, Collage, using Photoshop and you’ll learn beginner Photoshop skills such as layers and simple effects. We’ll be learning tools that will help you create graphics for business cards, letterheads, and blog banners. Register here now! We hope to see you there!
