PhotoShop vs Elements
with Chris Williams
Chris Williams is the guy to ask when it comes to PhotoShop (and) Elements! We are very fortunate to have him as a member in our group.
With respect to our upcoming focus group on post-processing (see below), I asked Chris if he'd talk to us a little about "what exactly are the differences?" and, "why would I want to purchase the very expensive PhotoShop, if Elements will do basicly the same...and the cost is much less?" So, Chris graciously agreed to talk with us re both of these programs in an effort to help us sort some of this out. He'll attempt to answer as many of your questions as possible, ...but realize that these are two very powerful programs and everything can not be answered in a one hour meeting. Chris will project some pictures on the screen for us to see as examples.

Post-Processing Focus Group
Responding to the many requests over the past couple years regarding some type class on post-processing, at the last meeting I took a poll to see how many in that meeting would be interested in a Post-Processing Focus Group.
I am glad to say that out of 35 present, 17 would like PhotoShop; 9 would like Elements; and 15 would like Lightroom. Other programs were listed, but only received a few acknowledgements. We will put our immediate focus on PhotoShop.
If you were not at the last meeting and want your name on the list, please email me which program(s) to: [masked]. Specify on a scale of 1 - 10, what you feel your skill level is (10 being high; 1 being I know "zero"). If you have some knowledge and are willing to help coach/teach, etc., please indicate that. And, if you have PS on your computer, which version?
We are still taking requests for those who would like to be considered for this group...as we will start with a small group of members who know basically nothing. They will meet frequently until comfortable and able to maneuver the various tabs and functions appropriately. At that point, those with "some" knowledge will join this group.
Meetings will occur on a Tuesday evening at 6 or 6:30 pm... Actual start date and other details have not been decided at this point. An announcement will be sent to those accepted into the initial group prior to starting. Others will be notified of their start time.
To take part in this focus group (and all focus groups),
you must be a currently paid member.
