    In this session, you'll learn how to harness the power of layers and masks, make quick selections using the right tool for the job, and drastically reduce files size--all while making your job easier.

  • Session 3: Filters for Art, Enhancement & Correction

    In session 3 learn how to use filters to focus your viewer's attention where you want it, disguise or correct flaws in an image and make artistic enhancements.
