Yearbook & Photography Advice: Photoshop Experience

Even though I learned a little bit about Photoshop when I was 10 years old, I didn’t know how to use the majority of the tools until joining my high school yearbook staff and taking a photography class in college. Down below are a few tools I learned how to pick up on in high school and college:

On and Off The Yearbook Staff:

  • Edited multiple image lighting (Brightness/Contrast)
  • Coloring┬áB & W Photos
  • Changing Image Resolution to 300

In & Outside of College Photography Class:

  • Using the spot healing tool to get rid of unnecessary junk on the sides and in the background
  • Using the color balance to balance out the color of an image
  • After coloring┬ásomeone’s eye colors in a b & w image, I lowered opacity and fill to make sure the eye colors look natural
  • Learned how to create a photography book with page layouts (using photo page)
