Aim

This course takes the knowledge provided in Digital Imaging 1 and takes it further, as well as introducing some new concepts and processes. More attention is given to blending modes, advanced selections, and filters, which will facilitate the creation of sophisticated photomontages and manipulated images. Colour management is emphasised, along with device profiling and printing. Advanced use of Photoshop and 3rd-party filters are also dealt with. Digital work is not just dealing with individual files, so processes around Digital Asset Management will be taught. The course also takes in a tour of Atkins Technicolour or Graphic Art Supplies, two of Adelaide’s leading photo/print processing and equipment supply services.

  • Non-destructive editing & automation
  • Blending modes and advanced automation techniques

  • Advanced channels and bit depth
  • Using text and graphic effects

Des Berwick teaches this course and says

“This is an exciting course to teach because the level of discovery is so high. The students are learning a huge amount about digital editing in a short space of time, and it’s great to see the ‘a-ha’ moments happening in class. This class is not just about learning technique, it’s about a significant change in your depth of understanding of how Photoshop, Lightroom and other tools can be applied to maximise the quality of your output.”
