2016 Program Nights
Bob Hirschfeld offered a tutorial on "Lightroom for Dummies." He insists using Adobe Lightroom is much simpler than many people think, as long as you stick to the basics. And that's what he's going to teach us tonight. He'll demonstrate how he organizes his photos and processes them on a laptop during his extensive travels.
Stephen Hinchey gave a brief introduction to "Photoshop Elements". He started with a brief look at the Quick menu and how novices can use it. Much of the evening was spent in the Guided menu and answering user questions. There was some time spent talking about the capabilities of the Expert Level, Spot Healing, Clone Stamping, Quick Selection, and the tricks of combing Selection with Burning.
Stephen mentioned layers, but David Wientraub will be hosting Program Night that goes into greater detail about the use of layers.
Jeff Dunn and Bob Hirschfeld spoke on Discussion Groups in PSA.
We had a 'local field trip', the topic was "roundish". Club members brought their cameras and we met afterwards to show and talk about the images.
