Photoshop for Beginners Workshop

The first-ever-workshop in ADLIB was held last September 15, 2012. Despite heavy rains, 8 students attended the Photoshop for Beginners Workshop conducted by Ms. Anne Cruz. Participants came from all walks of life and from a wide age bracket. Apollo, Mark, Marielle & Sean are elementary & high school students, Kate & Badette are from the City of San Fernando Tourism Office while Robert is a pastor & Joey is a retired Air Force officer.

The first part of the workshop was a lecture on the workspace orientation, various tools & basic skills to help students start working on Photoshop. After the lunchbreak the students were taught cropping using the pen tool which they used in doing their project. The project allowed them to put into practice the skills taught during the morning session. The students cropped their pictures and put it over a background with rays using shape. Then, they labeled it with their name using the type tool. Afterwhich, everybody was given a chance to present their works and share their experiences in the workshop.

The workshop ended with a simple recognition rites, awarding the students with certificates & a class picture as a souvenir.

Here’s what they got to say about the workshop:

“I learned the basics of using Adobe Photoshop, specifically the use of different tools.” 
Kate Mendoza-CSFP Tourism

“The course is fun and our instructor sees to it that we understand everything.” 
Badette Andasa-CSFP Tourism
