Deb Armstrong will be teaching a 3-week Photoshop Elements class at the Chesterton Art Center starting Tuesday, November 5 from 7-9. Students will learn how to edit photos as well as add borders, text layers, and special effects. Sample projects will include advertising layouts, digital scrapbooking, and other types of composite images. Participants should bring a laptop with Elements or a similar program installed if they want to follow along, although it is not required.

*Work Flow – workspace, view, rulers, guides + more
