Photoshop Thursdays: Non-Destructive Retouching.

Starting January 2008, join Jason Hoppe every Thursday morning for another fun, fast-paced sessions from his ongoing series of classes covering non-destructive retouching techniques.

90-minute Workshops. Learn in the morning and get back to work.

At CreativeTechs, we're taking a new approach to learning. We've broken weeks of training materials into dozens of smaller, bite-sized modules. The results are shorter, focused classes that allow busy creative professionals get what they need, without having to set aside an entire day, or two, (or three) for longer classes.

Here's the pitch: Join us Wednesday or Thursday mornings at 9:30am, pick up a couple new skills, and get back to work before lunch. You can put what you learned into use the same day.

Clear, exhaustive explanations in a comfy setting. Plus a complete handout to take home. In 90 minutes you'll pick up dozens of tips and techniques that you can put to work right away.

These workshops are demonstrated using Adobe Photoshop CS3 on Mac OS X, however the learning applies to PC users as well as previous versions of Photoshop.

Also Available: Personalized & Group Training.

In addition to the morning 90-minute workshops, all topics are available for personalized group training sessions, or individual one-on-one training. Plus, because of how we've developed smaller, bite-sized topics, we can easily combine a variety of topics to help fit your team's particular needs.
