Have you ever taken a photo that was almost perfect, but needed an adjustment, touch-up or “a little help” to make the photo look like what you wanted? This month professional nature photographer, writer and instructor Ruth Hoyt leads an evening computer class for novice to experienced photographers: “Learning Photoshop.”

The Photoshop class covers setting up a laptop or desktop computer with Adobe Photoshop software and learning how to use the software to edit, process, adjust and enhance photographs.

The class takes place on six evenings over a two-week timeframe – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights on October 19th, 20th, 21st and 26th, 27th and 28th. Class begins promptly at 6:30pm and ends at 8:30pm at the McAllen Creative Incubator, 601 N Main Street, McAllen, Texas.

No previous experience with Photoshop is required, but for participants to have a hands-on experience they are encouraged to bring laptop computers and digital photos. The version of Photoshop that Ms. Hoyt uses is the most current version, “Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.”

Cost for this class is $250; past participants receive a discount. Registration should be made by contacting instructor Ruth Hoyt directly via email (ruthhoyt@gmail.com) or phone (956-330-2900)

The McAllen Creative Incubator is located at 601 N. Main Street, in the Cultural Arts District of McAllen.  The “Incubator” as it is called by its students, admission free and open to the public.  For more information on upcoming classes or events visit us at www.mcallenart.com or 956-687-2787.
