Preparation

Please attend with your laptop (Mac or PC is fine) and have Adobe Photoshop installed and ready to run before the class commences (you can download a free trial version of Photoshop if you don't have one yet). It will be beneficial if you bring a mouse (or even a Wacom tablet if you have installed and used one before) for image editing, but it is not mandatory.
