THE CITY of Finestrat’s Department of Youth have extended the registration deadline for the Photoshop course in May.
The course will be held from May 3 – June 5 and will focus on the basic concepts of the ever-popular digital photography software.
The Councillor for Youth, Amelia Mayor, encourages the young people of Finestrat to take advantage of this opportunity ‘to learn the basic concepts of layers, photo retouching and editing images in a relaxed and fun environment.’ Students will begin in maneuvering their way around the software. They will deal with basic photo corrections, image resolution and size, colour adjustment, how to straighten, crop and repair zones with the ‘buffer’ tool.
Students will also learn how to work with selections, layers, masks, typographic design, vector drawing techniques, advanced composition, video image editing and even 3D imaging, among other content.
‘Photoshop is a fundamental tool for most creative projects,’ said the councillor. ‘And we think this course is suitable for young people to get started on basic Photoshop concepts like layers, retouching and image editing, which can be very useful for the preparation of works and for expanding curriculum.’
Those interested in the course can register by visiting the Department of Youth (3rd floor, City Hall), sending an email – [email protected] or sending a WhatsApp – 606 936 432.
The course costs €40 for those registered on the Finestrat padron and €50 otherwise.
Basic computer knowledge is a minimum requirement to participate.
