This comprehensive iPad and iPhone class will make your photographs look professional and grow your skills using the editing app, Snapseed. This is the “go to” for most photographers. This class will teach you better exposure, focus, composition, tricks and tips of the iphone. We will also cover resolution vs. compression, backups, jpgs, and tiff. We will look at the 25 best editing and camera apps, places to show your photos and websites to sell your work, and where to print your treasures on to clothing, canvas, glass, bags and more. There will be a resource list for tripods and additional lenses. Basic knowledge of the operation of your device is necessary, but No photography experience needed. Just bring your iphone or ipad with Snapseed app downloaded onto your device. A fine clear tip stylus is nice, but not required. Amazon has one called a Meko stylus.

On day two, you will learn to use the app Snapseed (free from the App store). This great all-purpose app will give you all its editing and enhancing features. Snapseed also has facial portrait enhancing, adding text, and white balance and sharpening. Time and weather permitting, we will go on a photo Safari around town to take to practice our skills in the classroom. IOS Apple only, Sorry no android, Galaxy etc.
