Photo Book Making Level 1 (Wed 11 June)

This is a full day course to learn how to make and produce a stitched photo book with cover.

You will need a laptop with either Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. You'll also need enough photographs already selected to fill a 16 page A5 book. I suggest 14 photos to allow for a title page and 1 text page.

We start off by talking about sequencing our images to get a nice flow within your book. We'll also make a dummy copy of our books at this stage which will helps us when producing the book spreads.

We then start designing our books in Photoshop. I'll be doing this on a large screen so you can follow along. You'll be opening your images, re-sizing where needed, placing them within your page spreads and saving the files ready for printing.
