It is technically challenging but not impossible for beginners, and makes an excellent refresher for more experienced Photoshop users. It is presented on an HD monitor or you are welcome to bring your own laptop with any recent version of Photoshop or Elements, and some (RAW or JPEG) images to work on. Take-home notes are provided for handy reference.
