"Developing a Consistent Workflow from Image Capture to Ready-to-Print"­

Two experts in workflow management for photographers and designers will be demonstrating their strategies for minimizing problems between photographers, graphic designers and print houses.
Jim Tierney, from
Digital Anarchy, is a long time developer of visual tools for design and compositing. He'll be talking about how to integrate plugins into a workflow that makes sense for photographers and designers, especially if photographers are handing off layered files to designers, agencies or clients. Some of his plugins include Beauty Box, which does automatic skin retouching, and Primatte Chromakey, which easily creates masks for green screen photography to remove backgrounds. After working for almost a decade with companies like MetaTools, Total Training/Atomic Power and Cycore, Jim thought it was time to create his own software. Digital Anarchy was born in 2001 to bring Jim's ideas for Photoshop and After Effects plugins to market.
Vincent Isola from
Genesis Photography will talk us through an ideal workflow. The following topics will be covered in detail. -Explain color management thought process and workflow and importance of screen to print matching. -Convert raw files. -Open images to be worked on in CS5 and prep for print. -Explain printer drivers and cover color management options. -Discuss different paper types and their characteristics. Vincent's work and articles have been featured in many publications, including; Architecture Digest, Designer's Illustrated, The Professional Photographer, Studio Photography, Pennisula Magazine, Shutterbug and Loan Collections Books. His corporate clients include Adobe Systems, Apple Computer, Bank of America, Cisco Systems, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, KPMG, Microsoft, Motorola, National Semiconductor, Oracle, Pottery Barn, Sun Microsystems, Stanford University, and Xerox. Vincent is a member of Canon's "Printmaster's Program", along with a handful of other photographers in North America. According to Canon, "Printmasters are among some of the top photographers in the world working in diverse photographic disciplines such as journalism, nature, fashion, fine-art, portrait and commercial photography." Arrive on time at 6:30 for pizza, drinks, and mingling, and then stick around after the presentation for cool raffle prizes. See you then!

    Thanks for another great session at Adobe/SF. Tom Tierney of Digital Anarchy showed how to use some of their plug-ins for PS to batch process images from a shoot.
    Vince Isola prepared an excellent presentation that discussed photography from before taking the picture through archiving the results. Unfortunately, we didn't get to hear it all even though we overran the time. Vince shared information about lighting, system color calibration, file management and archiving, and more...all they way to life philosophy. It would have turned a good session to great to be able to hear it all. I hope we'll be able to do that and have a Q&A as well.

    audio was too soft and following along via our laptops would be a nice option

    I enjoyed both presentations. Very informative.

    I left after the first speaker, so this is purely based on the content up to that point.

    The presentation from Digital Anarchy was waaaay too long. I don't begrudge sponsors the chance to show their wares...by all means, please do! But, as with any presentation, the time allotted should fit the content. 30 minutes to demo 2-3 straightforward plugins was overkill by a large margin. This part could have been perhaps 5 min with 1-on-1 Q&A after the session for anyone that was interested.

    Vincent Isola is a terrific resource and his presentation was very good. I was sorry he ran out of time at the end and completely skipped past several items I would have been very interested in hearing his insights. My hope is we can have him back soon. Also - could you work on getting the 'roving' microphone's volume amped up - it is impossible to hear what anyone is saying when using it. Thanks for encouraging the feedback and I look forward to our next meeting. One last note - Thursday, November 7 is the scheduled date for game seven of the world series - if it goes seven games. Something to consider.

    Vincent Isola's talk about workflow deserved more time. His knowledge and experience are worth a return visit.

    The first presenter did not have a command of his subject...and the sound system made it very difficult to hear.

    It was interesting to hear about what it takes to make a great picture (as your eyes see it) - monitor calibration, color balance, lighting control, the Histograms, file management and so on. Learn a lot. I wish the screen wasn't skewed. Thank you.

    Very good presentations, both speakers were excellent and I picked up a few new tricks. We should have the second speaker back to finish his talk.

    We have had many meetings on the same nights as Giants games, Adobe is just far enough away to make the parking not too bad.

    October 6, 2010

  • Tammy A.

    I'm bailing, as something else has come up.
    . GO GIANTS!!!!!
    . BTW keep in mind the game will make parking difficult.

    Obviously the demand for this event is huge. Any chance of repeating it next month for those of us who have to miss this one?
