GoAskErin Intensive Photoshop for Beginners - Monterey, CA - November 1-3, 2019
Lightroom is an amazing application, but underwater photographers will eventually find the need to jump to Photoshop. The spot removal tool in Lightroom just doesn’t cut it for removing backscatter, and although its new Range Masking tools rock, they can’t compete with Photoshop’s superpowers. Take your editing techniques to the next level by learning to use the most powerful editing software on the planet.
