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 CS6) 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. If you wish to avail yourself of Adobe's new Creative Cloud system, that is also viable.
