It’s time to attain Photoshop expertise

Written By Linda Knapp

Now that I own an excellent digital SLR camera, it’s time to stop dabbling in Photoshop and actually learn to use this photo-editing software. Adobe Photoshop is the standard among advanced amateur and professional photographers and it’s time for me (and maybe you?) to become a more competent user.

High tech now crucial to higher learning

I’m about to earn a graduate degree in journalism from the University of King’s College in Halifax, N.S. While small, it’s got a big reputation for excellence.

As I walk around the campus, I see students of all ages using the tools of the trade in the Internet Age: iPods, cellphones, laptops and USB Memory Sticks.

Workshops feature everything from video editing software such as Final Cut Pro to audio programs such as Cool Edit for radio pieces. Computer labs are equipped with state-of-the-art hardware in both Mac and PC format. It’s a very digital, 21st-century campus.

In the span of just 20 years, the mythology of universities and colleges as bastions of pure intellectual and skill development has been shattered. The Ivory Tower hasn’t just got an upgrade – it’s the Silicon Tower now.
