About The Class

Learn the tools to remove the distractions in your photos

It happens to every photographer when they are going through their images. A stray branch, soda can on the ground, or other distracting element in your favorite image. Why not just remove it? Sometimes it’s easy, but sometimes you just can’t make it look right. On top of that, there are several tools that all seem to do the same job in Photoshop®. In this class, Matt Kloskowski will walk through which tools work best for which jobs and how to remove those distracting elements from your photos.

Software Used: Adobe Photoshop CC 2017

    I usually don't leave comments but I really enjoyed this class because it focused on the one subject. Learning photoshop can be overwhelming. The way he walked you through the whole process of all the tools and how they can work together to finished the job was very helpful.
