THIS IS IMPORTANT:
You MUST have access to the Adobe Photoshop CS5 software in order to take this class! If you have another RECENT version of Adobe Photoshop (ie, CS4 or CS5.5) you may use it, but it will be up to YOU to figure out the slight differences, as your instructor (that's me) will using CS5.
PLEASE NOTE: Adobe Photoshop Elements or Adobe Photoshop Lightroom WILL NOT suffice for this class.
For the software deal available only to California Community College students (that's you), here is the link to purchase the software for cheap. I know, $349 is alot of money, but consider that the 'street price' is over $1800! You can also purchase a single copy of Photoshop CS5 for under $200.
Please buy the software ASAP, as we will be moving quickly!
