The student should be somewhat familiar with Adobe Photoshop Elements (PSE) by either attending the Adobe Photoshop Elements Intro Seminar or by using PSE to some degree. The student should also have intermediate computer skills using a Windows PC, understand most photo terms, and know the use of various file formats. This is not a photography seminar, but rather how to edit and work with photos once you have them.

Note: Photoshop Elements Version 15.0 is used in the classroom.
