Photo Editing & Retouching Workshop


Photo Editing & Retouching Workshop – (1) Sessions

 No matter how well the image was captured during the shooting process, the very
nature of jewelry photography requires the image to be retouched and fine tuned in the
post production, so it can be presented in all it’s glory and perfection.
In this Jewelry retouching one day workshop students will learn the essential skills to
manipulate and enhance digital images using Adobe Photoshop software
Students will learn how to use non destructive image editing techniques using
adjustment layers such as curves , levels and selective color balance as well as making
sections to enhance parts of the image. Dodging, burning and cropping techniques will
be covered
Participants will learn how to use High Pass Filter in order to apply professional
sharpening techniques to digitally prepare images for for a variety of output options,
whether for print or the web.
We will cover file naming, color management and color modes as well as computer
screen calibration
in order to produce “true colors” required by the industry.
