The instructor will provide exercise files for all the above material to practice during the workshop, but students are encouraged to provide their own. A pre workshop checklist will be sent out so they know what type of images to bring.
Photoshop CS6 will be the version used during the workshop and any version of Photoshop from CS4 up can be used, but certain features covered during the second day will not be available on older versions.
You can download a 30-day free trial here http://www.adobe.com/downloads/ participants should download the program a few days before the workshop.
A laptop that is powerful enough to run Photoshop is also a necessity; please consult their minimum requirements to make sure your computer can handle it.
