From the Instructor:

Welcome to CAS118 Beginning Photoshop.

Adobe Photoshop, the industry standard for image editing, is an incredibly sophisticated program for enhancing and creating images for print and online.

This course is designed for Photoshop CC (Creative Cloud) which is available as a monthly subscription from adobe.com. If you use the previous version, Photoshop CS6, you may find minor differences that are not addressed in this course.

This course is accessed through Desire2Learn (D2L), the learning management system that PCC uses to deliver online courses. You will find a link to D2L at my.pcc.edu or online.pcc.edu.
