Course Description

The course opens with a comprehensive introduction to Corel’s PaintShop Pro and delivers several ‘quick start’ hints and tips for correcting many of the issues found in amateur photographs.

The program moves gently through the gears, adopting an approach that’s more ‘show’ than ‘tell’, and within 20 minutes, Students will be manipulating images to suit a pre-specified requirement.

We have done our best to root the syllabus in the ‘real world’ and have a little fun.

The first practical ‘section’ looks at the crazy world of self improvement, using many of PaintShop Pro’s built in tools, to achieve the perfect ‘Profile Picture" Less wrinkles, more muscles, a better life, you get the idea.

The course ends with an in-depth look at some slightly more advanced concepts, as always, showing how to achieve results, rather than simply reading from the manual.

All in all, every enrolled Student will receive a well rounded guide to creating a better photograph.
