What are the benefits of Photoshop over Picasa?

 

The main advantage Photoshop has over Picasa is the ability to only change part of a picture or replace one element with another. For instance you can make the sky darker in Photoshop without changing the landscape area whereas in Picasa any changes affect the whole picture.

 

What's the difference between Photoshop and Photoshop Elements?

 

Photoshop Elements is the cut down amateur version of Photoshop. It costs about 20% of the price but probably has 70% of the features. For amateurs Elements will normally do the job.

Student Testimonials

I wanted to learn the basics and improve a photograph by enhancing colours and doing a cut-out. This was an excellent relaxed Photoshop course where we were able to work at our own pace & cover the projects we wanted.

I wanted to know how to correct over exposed images and correct colour balance. Also improve portraits and landscapes. I have really enjoyed myself and learned so much in one day. I now feel confident to explore Photoshop in much more depth.

Having attending several course on digital photo editing using Photoshop covering the very basic to more sophisticated techniques I must stress complete satisfaction with Glen, the course content, and teaching methods used. I am now able to perform with much greater efficiency with some very good results. I have recommended these to several friends and would continue in the future. Best regards

A thoroughly enjoyable day with a good balance of theory followed by the practical session. I wanted to understand how to use the basic manual functions of the camera and I'm far more confident now that I will be able to capture the shot I'm after. -
