Adobe Photoshop Image Restoration Tutorial

Phil Hawkins has been a landscape Photographer in Yosemite National Park for twenty-two years and an avid user of Photoshop for the last seven years. In this tutorial, "Adobe Photoshop Image Restoration - Image Acquisition and Retouching", he will begin by teaching photography concepts: image color, film grain, tonal range and cropping techniques, will be covered. Next, he will move into acquisition methods such as scanning and importing. Once the image has been brought into Photoshop, he will discuss file management, resolution and bit depth. He will follow up with color correction, composition and finally image restoration. This is a project based tutorial that will help any Photoshop user from version 5 up to the current CS and beyond.
