So the last 2 Saturdays, I spent teaching two people photoshop.
One of the people who attended had a background, in IT. Their difficulty in dealing with the Macintosh interface has me once again wondering about how people learn using computers. The way they used the mouse seemed to go against the way the operating system worked, they were constantly loosing their place on the screen. What is it that people do so differently on a P.C. that makes their experience with a Mac different?
Over the years the course I teach has not only shrunk from 4 days, but the content has crept away from the original idea. Now most people have access to a digital camera, this essentially changes the way we explore the idea of image size in the class for example. The idea of a workflow now predominates the workshop, rather than how to use the tool that is 'Photoshop' amongst other things.
