NH Adobe User Group July Meeting - Photoshop Techniques to Create Great Images

  • Jul 8, 2014 · 1:30 PM
  • Taylor Hall

Topic: Photoshop Techniques to Create Great Images

Speaker: George Emmons, Professional Photographer

Details: Here is the challenge! Take the best digital image you can and bring it to class. We will open it up on the computer and decide what we need to do to increase the quality of the image. I will give you a detailed demo on the computer showing you how to execute the decisions we made about the image. This is your chance to see the pieces involved in creating fine art. This is an interactive class, I will do my best to spend time with everyone so we all get an opportunity to examine the thought process and workflow I use.

    Here are a few reminder tips from our MeetUp
    1. f12 or File Revert will return an image to its last saved version.
    2. If your computer slows down while working on an image, go to edit purge and you can clear out all activiy since the last save and your RAM will be free to operate.
    3. Avoid using Image Mode Grayscale to create Black and White images. A better way to do it is by using image adjustments Black and white, it gives you better control over the conversion.
    4. Use your Dodge and Burn Tools from the tools bar to uncover more detail in the blacks and whites in the image.
    5. Use Hue Saturation for landscapes and Vibrance for images with skin tones.
    6. Use image adjust Levels to create the best Histogram by sliding the left and right triangles to a point where the Histogram moves upward and the center triangle to to largest curve in the Histogram.

    These are a few tips from the meeting, if you have any questions, please email me at [masked]

      Hi Lyin - Sorry you can't make it. We are looking at systems right now. We used to have GoToMeeting, but gave it up. We'll just have to ask George to do it again!
