Benefits

This course teaches basic foundations of image transfer, cataloguing, organising and tagging photos so you can easily find images.

You will then go on to learn how to edit photos easily and make all the critical adjustments required to then export or print your images at various sizes and formats.

In practice, this course will also help you improve your eye for a shot as you become more aware of the improvements that could have been made in camera.

How you will learn
