Introduction to Photoshop
There are few people who have never heard of Photoshop. The application is so well known that its name has been converted into a verb. People often ask me, “Do you Photoshop your images?” and “Ach, can you just Photoshop it out”. This last statement is often used by people who have little or no experience using Photoshop because it’s just not that simple.
Adobe Photoshop is a powerful image editor and graphic design software application trusted by photographers and designers around the world. But, as with any powerful and feature-rich application, getting started can be a challenge.
I’m Martin Sproul, and I have worked with Adobe Photoshop for over twenty years as an amateur and professional photographer. I am a qualified instructor and Adobe Certified Professional. In this short course, I will introduce you to the essential things you need to know as a photographer.
The topics covered in this Photoshop course include: –
- Navigating the Photoshop interface
- Creating selections and masks
- Working with Photoshop Layers
- Applying Adjustment Layers
- Removing unwanted distractions
- Saving and exporting
This seminar will last two hours and will introduce you to Photoshop and demonstrate how it can help your photography. At the end of the course, you will be confident in using and exploring the many features and tools within Photoshop.
If you wish to expand your knowledge and skills in Photoshop, you can also book your place on my in-depth Photoshop for Photographers course. My in-depth Photoshop course also takes place in Loxley Colour Lab on the 13th and 14 of July 2022.
If you have any questions about this, or any other course, please contact me.
This course is free of charge

I have been taking photographs at various levels since I was 14 years of age – that’s a long time. I started with a cheap and fully manual SLR camera which forced me into a steep learning curve to ensure I didn’t waste every roll of film. Yes, film! I used rolls of film at first then progressed onto shooting and developing my own slides.
I am a qualified instructor and have over 8 year’s experience as an industry trainer, which when coupled with my knowledge, experience and passion for photography, ensures that all our courses are meticulously designed and delivered with enthusiasm. It is always a joy to further people’s knowledge and inspire their photography.
Excellent course as usual. Very informative without going too deeply into the subject. This was pitched exactly at the level I was looking for and enables me to start entering realms of Photoshop with a bit more confidence and hopefully build my knowledge.
Thank you, Alan. I’m glad you enjoyed it and looking forward to seeing you in July
Thanks Martin and thanks to Loxley for hosting.
I enjoyed your seminar. I would attend future presentations.
Thank you for your comment, and I look forward to seeing you at other events. Remember I run online events as well as in-person.
This course was just what I needed to get me started with Photoshop. Martin explained things well and delved deep enough for us to have an appreciation of some of the things that Photoshop can do without going into too much detail and losing us. I love that he is always open to questions so that we can equally learn from each other too.
I learned a lot which I can now take away and try out before I attend one of his workshops on the subject.
Martin is an excellent trainer. It is a pleasure to listen to him, knowing that what he is teaching, he knows in depth and that it comes from his practical experience with the product.
It was nice to see you at Loxley and I am glad you enjoyed the talk. Hopefully, see you in July for the in-depth Photoshop course.
