Yes & yes.
I have gained extensive knowledge of all the Adobe Creative Suite applications. Being retired, I primarily use the latest versions of Photoshop, Lightroom, and various plugin applications for editing photos.
My 45 year professional career provided me with the opportunity to develop and implement manufacturing production training programs. I completed Graphic Design & Business Management courses at RIT in the early years to enhance my publication skills. The last 15 years was focused more on publication technologies - developing the branding and labeling standards for an Authoring team. Responsibilities also included preparing illustrations and images for the authoring content. Learning came in all forms as various challenges were presented.
I've experienced all forms of editing to prepare images for Web & print throughout my career. Document design/layout and composition are my other strengths.
Improve my ability to capture the best possible image using the camera. From there, enhance the image using various editing tools and techniques without jeopardizing or sacrificing image quality.
Publication Technology Specialist at a medical device company - main work responsibilities are to collect and prepare documents for Web, print, and CD. I also assist our authoring work group with adherence to labeling & branding standards.
Extraordinary people - both leads and members are always willing to share their knowledge and experiences - maybe because we have so much in common.
