Understanding the Basics - goes over how to navigate the interface, basic shortcut keys, adding text, working with images, and other features to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
Layers - shows you how to combine multiple images, resize them, split them apart, and add in color boxes.
Selections - starts by showing how to remove simple images from a photograph and finishes by showing how to select out strands of hair and change the background.
Color Correction - goes from simple corrections to in depth theory. It uses this theory to fix complicated photographs, change the color of a shirt from yellow to green, and even turn part of an image into black and white.
Object Removal - isn't just about how to remove a pimple. It covers removing wires, large objects such as a fencepost, and even how to get rid of something like a date stamp when it is in front of a person's face.
Beauty Retouching - I show you how to remove wrinkles, increase the size of an eye or decrease ...

About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

About Richard
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.

Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.

I have been using Adobe Photoshop both academically and professionally for about 7 years now. I use it primarily to edit and create architectural renderings, edit photos that I have taken, as well as any graphics that I have created. I currently use CS5.5 at home and CS6 at work. I have reference images available. I believe the entire Adobe Suite works best when intertwined with both Illustrator and InDesign as the programs are very similar to one another.

About Steven
I'm a recent graduate of the Boston Architectural College, and employed by a large architectural firm in Boston. I am currently teaching a Rhino 3-D course at the BAC I tutor in all aspects of architecture including portfolio design, writing, software tutoring, design critiquing, and overall academic guidance. For software, I specialize in the Adobe Suite, AutoCAD, Revit, Rhinoceros, and V-Ray. I've tutored students of all differing ages and skill sets, ranging from novice to advanced user. Further, I have numerous references and reviews about my services that I would be happy to pass along, as well as past design work that I have done both academically and professionally. Lastly, I have numerous resources students can use after tutoring sessions are complete such as reference manuals, tutorials, and websites to visit for additional learn

While Lightroom can handle most post processing needs, certain tasks require (or can be done more easily) in Photoshop. I can help you determine when to leverage Photoshop in your workflow and how to navigate the interface. I use Photoshop professionally for complex, multi-layer architectural composites, and enjoy helping students build Photoshop skills.

Please note: Photoshop is powerful and robust software. My lessons are more suitable for photographers than graphic designers.

About Cindy
Photography is a passion of mine and I love sharing it with others. I enjoy helping others understand the art and science in photography and would be delighted to work with you.

--- REVIEWS ---
Prior students and clients have given me 5 of 5 stars in all 51 online ratings across various websites. Students have told me they appreciate the way I simplify complex topics, such as in these reviews from prior students:

Incredibly helpful
Cindy was incredibly helpful, and really went "above and beyond" in every way. She's extremely knowledgeable and did a tremendous amount of research in order to supplement her work on this job. Saved me many, many hours of potential aggravation — I will definitely continue to rely on her for expertise with all things Lightroom/Photoshop/PostProduction for photography. Highly recommended!

Computer Challenged student gives her 5 stars plus!
Cindy was very patient and worked well with my low computer skill level. The class was very informative and fun. I believe we hit it off right away. I can't wait for my next class.
- Hope S., Snellville, GA

Very patient.
Cindy was able to untangle my Lightroom 6 update snarl with patience and humor. She has an excellent grip on the mechanics of Lightroom and communicates well. I recommend her highly.
- Elizabeth S., Middleton, MD

Excellent
Contacted Cindy a few months ago to help me to put together a slide show, clean up my photos, To say that I'm technically inept would be a compliment. At my age (you don't want to know) just about all these new programs give me the shakes. I was using a rather basic photo program and she recommend I take a look at Adobe Lightroom. I was notified that it would look a bit intimidating and was pretty aggressive. That was an understatement. Well, it's been a couple months now and I think the Adobe LR program is absolutely terrific. I've become quite proficient and the program is so inclusive that I'm sure, despite how far I've come along, it will always be able to do what I need with the help of Cindy. She has been very responsive, knowledgeable, organized and very patient. My lessons will be ongoing (every two weeks) and will build upon a strong foundation. Highly recommend Cindy.
- Tom K., Marietta, GA

--- LOCATION ---
I offer tutoring online via Skype and in person at the Alpharetta library.

If you would like to learn more about photo manipulation, restoration and digital scrapbooking.... I'd be happy to teach you!

About Lisa
After graduating from college with a degree in education I was determined to change the course of the education for my own family. I was the first on either side of my entire family (all generations) ever to go to a university and graduate. I came from very humble hard working (yes bullheaded Irish) people. As a naturally highly creative person the school system was not a nurturing place at all for me. As a deeply right brained visual person the left brained system was toxic for my creativity and I struggled to thrive and be myself.

For the past 21 years I've dedicated my time, energy, creativity to home schooling my own two children in their academics as well as the necessary skills for every day life. Thankfully, I had the opportunity not to put either of them in day care one day. My focused sacrifice has been intense, seriou
s, determined. planned, and obvious in my passion to educate them both in a left brain manor with a massive amount of creative liberty.

The ignorant, verbal, flack I encountered during this was insane but I didn't waver. I believe in one on one education customized for each child and knew from the start what I wanted to accomplish with both of them! I wanted them to learn how to learn with their personalities, natural strengths and talents but I had to observe and implement very different parenting and teaching techniques with both from birth.

Yes, my hard unwavering work has paid off and is continuing to pay off. Both of my children walked into their first college courses at age 14. Yes, real college classes on real college campuses! Both are honor students and my first will finish his degree in English Lit/Creative Writing at UNC Asheville in Dec 2016 at age 21!

Private piano lessons are nothing more than home schooling. I bring the same customized passion I used for my own children to teach yours! Not only do I have an education degree I have a proven track record of teaching children how they uniquely need to learn whether it's visually, audio, or kinetically etc. I know how to challenge them and make them work...even the super smart lazy ones!

After each lesson I take a few moments to consult the parent(s) about the lesson and what needs to be accomplished during the students next practice week. You need to be aware of their education because they grow rapidly and there is much to accomplish before they attend college! Do some research on the benefits of learning and playing music if you are not a musician yourself. It's incredible what it will do for the development of their brain little brains!

Apparently, I'm not allowed my customary studio "meet and greet" with Takelessons. I have studio rules that must be followed and if they aren't I will not continue to teach your children. You must have a piano or keyboard for them to regularly practice on and believe me I know when they don't practice. I know what method books I like to teach from so I'll be happy to share that information with you. If you don't have any I cannot start the lessons without them. They must be purchased before hand.
There are other rules so please message me first so that we can discuss them first so that there is no confusion about the studio policies. This isn't a hobby this is serious valuable education for your child.

I don't have the time nor the energy to deal with unprofessional parents because my time and energy goes fully towards teaching amazing students.

At this time I've been pre-approved, by the head of arts education in Guilford County, to teach music education and chorale education in the Guilford County School system. I'm waiting for openings and interviews. My time educating my own children is over with so I must move on to teach other incredible human beings!

I look forward to passionately educating you or... those you love!

I can teach you basic to advanced methods to edit photos on any number of topics, just ask.

About Jason
My educational background is in journalism with a minor in English and I've always been enamored with the literary and visual arts. I published my first book featuring poetry along with photography in 2006 and have since written four more.

My photography has been published in several magazine as well including the following:

Fahrenheit USA – Nov. 2015
My Belleza Inc. – April 2016
Tres Jolie – May 2016

In 2007, I started the business called Three Rivers Creative Arts providing creative service including photography, writing, editing and graphic design.

As a person who likes the opportunity to help others and to work with all of these types of areas, I thought that a great website like this one here at TakeLessons could allow me to do both.

As time goes on you'll be able to retouch and stylize your photos, to give them that professional look you have been wanting. I also specialize in Digital Painting, which also can be done here in Photoshop. All you need to get started is Photoshop CC, a mouse, Wacom/ Graphics Tablet (illustration). Start today!

Our son Christopher has been passionate about art and illustration his entire life but with traditional art instruction had become incredibly critical of his inability to duplicate exactly what other instructors required of him. In that regard meeting Tim Long has been one of the biggest blessings for us. Tim has helped to re-build a foundation for a lifelong relationship with art. His teaching methods are creative, engaging and unlike traditional art instructors rather than coax or box-in a child's imagination he provides the freedom to explore artistic expression based on our sons perception of art. Christopher has begun to experience illustration on a completely different level thanks to Tim, learning that trial and error and problem solving are part of the process and over the past few months it has been a joy to see the artist in him blossom again!

I've been designing for almost 15+ years and have become very familiar with the adobe suite programs. I consider myself a master in adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I started learning the Adobe suite in High School and used every opportunity to play with each tool and option in Adobe Illustrator and photoshop. I graduated from the Georgia Southern University Design program at the top of my class and have won several design awards since then.

My approach to tutoring is to start with the fundamentals and then progress to the concepts of how Adobe suite is setup. My goal is to remove any mental block caused by lack of knowledge of the software, to allow you to create without limits. I see the potential in each student and will push you to become the best you can be. I believe if you put in the work and time you too can become a master at Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

I tailor my Adobe Photoshop lessons to meet the precise needs of my students. Make a flyer, edit a photo, create a business card or sign, make a photo album, create a promotional ad, touch up modeling images.
Or just learn the basics of the program.

About Holly
I am a professional photographer and I love shooting events all over this beautiful city!

My interest in photography developed at a very young age. My senior year of high-school I did an independent study of Photography which required me to assist students with their work in the dark room. This is where I discovered the fulfillment that came with helping others understand the ins and outs of photography.

In college, I spent hours after class working in the dark room and the digital lab. I was completely captivated by the endless capabilities that the Adobe Creative Suite programs had to offer. This played a key role in my current style of project fruition.

In the more recent years, I spent a lot of time editing photos for fashion and advertising needs. A few of my friends in the industry asked me if I could teach them the basics
of Photoshop so they could add that skill to their resume. I happily agreed!

This quickly turned into a regular gig via word of mouth and I hope to continue to help others get acquainted with these tools and develop their digital artistic ability!

Holly worked editing photos for my company to aid in advertising and Web publishing. I can only say that her work was impeccable. Every photo that she touched came back to us ready to go in formats that we could use directly or pass on to clients as part of an advertising portfolio. I only wish that she had stayed in Connecticut so her talent could further benefit my business.
