Image processing using Adobe Photoshop as an example

Perspective representations have a high value in the field of architecture and design. What is the best way to achieve one's goal with one's own abilities? Rendering is rarely a model photo or a sketch finished at the push of a button. The post-processing, assembly and staging forms an indispensable part of the final product. The most important Adobe Photoshop tools will be introduced and practiced in practical exercises during the course.

The main focus will be on architectural manipulation. We will not post-process renderings. Rather, we focus on understanding Photoshop, processing images, learning to work with perspective, and finally compose a complete image ourselves. The skills we develop can be used for all areas of architectural visualization.
