I teach a basic photography class through our local arts center. During our last course, we had a big demand in learning some photoshop techniques. We had access to a large computer lab where everyone had access to Photoshop CS2, and so I agreed. The first session was a real eye opener to me. I tried to teach the very basics of photohop-opening files-which I had put on each computer in advance, a look at differences between jpg, tiff,eps, etc, we also touched on using the selection tools, turning a photo bw, and the bare basics of curves and other lighting/color editing options. As I was walking around the class, I had a sea of blank looks. Some of these students were novices in anything computer. They almost needed a basic computer class before the Photoshop class. My question is, what and how do I teach the very basics of editing a photo in programs such as photoshop?
