COM202: Adobe Photoshop for the Laser - Introduction

Want to etch images on wood, acrylic or other materials using the laser? Want to learn how to prepare your images using Adobe Photoshop?

In this art-to-part class, we will introduce Adobe Photoshop and how to manipulate images to ensure you have the image you need when you get to the laser cutter. We will cover resolution and image characteristics, like brightness and sharpness. You will also learn methods for handling image data including layers, .psd format vs. .jpeg and other raster formats, and much more. Finally, you will etch your creation on the laser so you see the whole experience from art to part!

This class is a good introduction to Photoshop for other uses as well, although our focus will be on the functions that most laser users need when they start using Photoshop.

Prerequisite: A working knowledge of the Windows operating environment.
