Photoshop workshops £15 per session 7.30 – 9.30 Please bring your laptop, camera - with a few images to work on and cable to connect the two. An extension lead would help, too. Workshops will start at 7.30 and finish at 9.30 with a tea break at 8.30.

It would be helpful for me to know beforehand what software and version you are using, and which sessions you would like to come to. colintracy66@gmail.com It is fine to dip in and out of classes ie you don't have to come to them all. Each session costs £15 payable to Bridport Camera Club.
