The January 2006 meeting brings our second Photoshop workshop.

Apart from the competition, following a short introduction the whole evening will be a hands-on workshop with a number of sessions to choose from. The specific topics being demonstrated are:

1. Quick tips for fixing images for projection and websites (Alex Mustard)

2. Selections (Martha Tressler)

3. Monochrome (JP Trenque)

4. Layers - including masks and blending options (Anthony Holley)

Choose from 3 simultaneous demonstrations in each of the first and second halves of the evening. The first half has 'Quick tips', 'Selections' and 'Monochrome'. The second half has 'Quick tips', 'Selections' and 'Layers'.

The introduction will give you an idea of what will be covered in each.

'Quick tips' and 'Selections' are suitable for any level of experience including beginner, for the 'Monochrome' session you might want some Photoshop experience, where 'Layers' will probably be most use to more advanced users.

If you are bringing a laptop, we can provide you with copies of the images being used in the demonstrations to follow along with. If you want to transfer copies of images please try and arrive early, 7.30 onwards.

In addition to the demonstrations, there will be an 'image surgery' where you can ask questions and bring images with particular problems - on a memory stick or CD if you are not bringing a laptop.

Please think about which sessions you want to attend in advance, and whether you have any specific questions on other topics to bring along.

Please note that the last Photoshop evening was such a success we could have carried on all night... we have a lot to get through and intend to start on time at 8p.m. so please be prompt if possible. We look forward to seeing you on the 18th.
