Integrate Photoshop into Curriculum

Integrate Photoshop into curriculum to get the most use out of your licensing. If your school or district is paying for Adobe Photoshop CC subscriptions you want to use this software regularly. It is expensive to provide to students. For this reason, do not limit its use to just one teacher, assignment, unit, or course.

Adobe Photoshop CC is more than just photo editing software. It is a powerful creativity tool that can be used to support learning. Use these suggestions to integrate Photoshop into curriculum.

Include Photoshop software as part of a photo editing class. Experiment with techniques to filter, retouch, recolor, and superimpose images. These skills can then be transferred to other academic classes to produce one-of-a-kind publications.

Digital Photography Course

Integrate Photoshop software into curriculum for a digital photography course. Teach the history of photography and how to use a digital camera. Afterwards, have students use their skills to assemble a collection of photos. They can then use Photoshop to enhance the quality, correct imperfections, and produce artistic effects.

Yearbook Workshop
