Manage your pictures in Bridge and retouch them professionally in Photoshop

Face a large production of images, develop photo shoots, manage technical and human teams, carry out the editing process from the download of the material, select themes, classify images to post-production and calibration of RAW files and export to send to customers in different formats; These are the tasks facing daily, Álvaro and Nano from the producer CONTRA. They work generating image banks that manage to convey the spirit of direct clients, advertising agencies and design studios that have the need to have their own photographic and audiovisual material.

In this course, CONTRA will guide you so that you can create an image bank for yourself or for a client, showing you how to organize, manage and manage large volumes of files.
