Adobe Photoshop is the de facto standard for high-end image creation and manipulation. Introduction to Adobe Photoshop training, organized by Armada Training Centre, covers key tools and features, including colour correction, working with layers, compositing images and preparing images for use on the Web.

This course is ideal for newcomers to Photoshop, and those with limited Photoshop experience. It is a hands-on and practical training. The trainers will teach you the necessary theory then demonstrate techniques step-by-step. You then practice the techniques taught on a computer running Photoshop.

Course delegates receive a comprehensive training guide for Photoshop, to refer to throughout the course, and to use as a refresher afterwards; and an e-certificate confirming successful completion of an Adobe accredited Photoshop training course.

Are you interested in this course? If so, you should contact Armada Training Centre through Emagister.co.uk right now! The opportunities are on the palm of your hand.
