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. 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.
