    I both learned a great deal and thoroughly enjoyed this workshop, and I would advise others with a graphic design and photography interest to take it. I went in as a true beginner, although some of the other participants were far more experienced. The class covers a great deal of material and students go home with a binder giving detailed step by step directions for each project that was covered...so no note taking is necessary during the class. A great bonus! Dan, our instructor, was extremely patient and thorough in his explanations and very attentive and helpful to each student. Be aware that taking the class allows you to retake it without additional cost!

    Based on the amount of time we had, I thought we learned a great deal of Photoshop! As someone who has never used Photoshop, I was able to get an understanding of the fundamentals and I feel I will be able to "hold my own" when using the software. Of course, I will need to learn more, but for what it was, I think it was great!

    This was a perfect introduction to Photoshop. The little assignments were incredibly helpful and I was really pleased that we were given books with instructions to take home for future reference. Instructor was friendly and helpful, classroom and computers were really nice. I've already recommended Noble Desktop to a few people and will definitely take more classes in the future.

    Michelle covered a lot in one day. She was very thorough and patient. I think there was so much information that it was a little confusing at the end but it was definitely very informative.

Question from Irina
Hi, can I learn photoshop and editing on my android phone? I don't have any other equipment, and I use my phone for everything
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Irina! The school will have computers here for students to use in class. To practice what they teach in class, it is recommended that students have a computer with Adobe Photoshop installed. There are phone apps that can be used for photo editing - and some of the concepts from the class will apply to photo editing on a phone, however, it’s not how they teach the class. Hope this helps!

Question from Mindy G.
Do we learn how to make collage mosaics which I believe is something you can do in photoshop?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Mindy, thanks for your question! The Photoshop in a Day class will cover photo retouching and manipulation and color correcting, including image compositing, a technique which can be used to create collages. Keep in mind that it is a 1-day beginner class though, so there is only so much we can cover in the day. Hope this helps!
