Q:

I have 12 mexapixel kodak point and shoot w the ability to adjust manually... Do i need a single lens reflex camera to truly benefit from this course? Which one would be best? My other p + s is a 4 megapixel canon power shot that takes two hours of gb video on a 16 gb sd card though it is technically a still camera... Would i benefit from these courses with either camera? This also allows some manual control of iso etc.

A:

The camera best suited for this course is either a DSLR or Point-Shoot Camera with manual controls (Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual and Program Mode). These settings give you the ability to control your exposures.

Q:

The Fine Print (Photo Art Studio) Is Adobe Lightroom available for the Groupon rate of $39, or just the 4 courses I saw on the registration form. You do mention Lightroom in the Groupon ad, so it seems like it would be available. Awesome deal! Thanks!!!!! I may take 2 courses. Sue

Susan F.  asked on  Feb 12, 2013

A:

Very sorry, but Lightroom is not an eligible course for this offer. You can choose from the four courses listed; digital photography, Photoshop, Web Animation (Flash), or Web Development (Dreamweaver).

Q:

Is the Photoshop class compatible with Photoshop Elements 11 (which I own)?

Laurie C.  asked on  Feb 12, 2013

A:

The courses are designed for any version of Photoshop above CS 4. Elements is limited in functionality when compared to the CS versions. They suggest downloading the trial software and using it for the course. Once you are familiar with CS 4 or higher you can very easily transfer your skills over to Elements.

Q:

Is there a separate software purchase cost to participate in the class? I noticed that the class includes a full TRIAL version of the software, however will that trial version cover everything for the duration we would need to complete the class? Additionally, is the software compatible with all computers (I am on an older MacBook and know Adobe Lightroom is not compatible) ?

Heather H.  asked on  Feb 13, 2013

A:

The trial version is valid for 30 days, and is fully functional. If you intend on taking longer then 30 days to complete the course, you would need to secure the software independently after this period. I suggest checking with Adobe to be sure that your computer is compatible with their software.

Q:

Hello I was hoping you could answer my question. I have always been interested in taking up photography as a hobby and have no experience in it at all. Is this class going to be way over my head. Also what equipment will I be needing, I assume a camera of some sorts is involved as well as other programs. What is the avg. cost of these? Thanks for your help. Heidi

Heidi  asked on  Feb 13, 2013

A:

No experience is required! The camera best suited for this course is either a DSLR or Point-Shoot Camera with manual controls (Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual and Program Mode). These settings give you the ability to control your exposures. I suggest shopping around with camera retailers for the best prices.

Q:

What version of Photoshop do you instruct on. I have C5 and wanted to know if I may use my own version rather than the temporary version. Thanks.

Lynn W.  asked on  Feb 13, 2013

A:

That will definitely work. The courses are designed for any version of Photoshop above CS 4.
