Creative Image
Editing

Introduction

This course will teach you how to use the Photopea online image editing program to do basic image processing tasks such as: cropping, resizing, colour balancing and sharpening. Also more advanced creative tasks such as: selecting and working with parts of images, using layers (blending) and other enhancement techniques, and making an image by combining images, will be covered.

You will need to have basic skills in using a web browser and saving files. Both Windows, Macintosh and Linux based computers can be used as long as they have an up to date version of a web browser such as Chrome or Firefox.

If you choose to use your own laptop it will need to have a mouse as it is needed to make accurate selections.
