RPEG's focus is on photography and photo editing, but Meetup's focus is on getting people together face-to-face. Are you able to attend at least some of our meetings and tutorials? Do you sincerely plan to do so? If so, please continue!

Yes!

Experience isn't required for membership, but we do ask that your main reason for joining be an interest in cameras and photo-editing. What editor (if any) are you using? If Photoshop, which version? Beginner, intermediate, advanced or expert?

Photoshop CS5 Intermediate. I don't use layers. I do use many other tools. I have used Photoshop since the 90's.

If experienced with your program(s), how did you LEARN the program along the way? Books? Videos? In a formal school curriculum? On the job? Please be as specific as possible

I learned by dogged determination, by endless hours in the U of R multimedia lab. Trial and error, mostly. Help menu, occasional help from students running the lab. Arghhh...

If experienced, what areas of photo editing do you consider your strengths? Portrait touchups? Compositing? HDR Imaging? Web? Artistic? Photo Repair? Other? Please specify.

Portrait touch-ups, web, artistic, photo repair & restoration, color correction, removing objects from photos, major alterations, (drying a dress, fertilizing grass, weeding, hairstyling, that sort of thing). I'm not sure what compositing and HDR are.

What are the areas where you'd especially like to increase your skills?

Layers and lots more! There's plenty I don't know in PS! I can look in the manual and find lots of things.

Introduction

I'm a musician (cellist)and an amateur photographer.
