Noble Desktop’s Photo Retouching Certificate is intended for both beginners and those with a more advanced design background. The certificate programs includes classes in Adobe Photoshop, Advanced Retouching, and Adobe Lightroom.
Noble never disappoints. I registered for this class because I wasn't sure I was using Adobe Lightroom properly. Dan helped me see that I was doing well - to a point. There is so much more to the software than I even imagined. Not only was I able to adapt my workflow immediately after class, I can now handle basic retouching without having to switch to Photoshop.
I've used Photoshop for many years, yet this class taught me advanced functionality in the software that I had no idea existed. And the instructor, Ethan, provided excellent instruction on applying retouching techniques to real-world examples. This will help further my career, for sure.
This was an amazing class. The teacher was fun and very informative. I knew a lot of what was taught, but I learned so many short cuts and in depth information. I believe you have cut my retouching time in half.
Top of the heap!!!! The tips of trainer will save me hours and hours of tedium. I learned how to retouch like the pros!
Learning how to retouch skin tones was worth the price of the class.
Eugenio was very experienced and knowledgeable. We were supplied with good examples of images to use for practice.
Eugenio is one of the most knowledgeable instructors I've come across. He is also extremely patient with questions and does a great job explaining. I highly recommend taking this course to further your skills at Photoshop.
As one of our smaller courses, tuition for this course is due in full before the start date.
There are no extra fees or taxes for our courses. The price you see on this page is the maximum you’ll pay us.
However, if you plan to take the course live online, you may need to obtain required software. We’ll help you get set up with a free trial of paid software prior to the class. Most of our coding classes utilize freely-available open-source software. For most of our design and motion graphics courses, we will help you get set up with a free trial of Adobe Creative Cloud. If you attend the course in-person, we will have a computer already set up for you with all of the required software for no additional cost.
This program is a discounted package of classes that is 15–25% off the individual class prices, so additional discounts do not apply.
