This workshop will demonstrate rendering techniques using Photoshop CS tools specific for landscape architecture including the use of online graphic resources and development of techniques for a variety of medium styles including marker and water color. It will also cover information on importing projects as scans or from other computer applications, printing/saving, file extensions, and resolution for file management. Basic computer skills are required; a familiarity with Photoshop is preferred.

This is a hands-on workshop, you must bring a laptop computer with Photoshop in order to participate.
