By overwhelming demand, we're going to delve deeply into the Power of Layer Masks for the next two Meetups.
One of the beauties of Photoshop is the ability to make changes locally, not just globally. Layer Masks are a powerful way to accomplish this, whether it is for contrast, color correction or sharpening . Discover how to get started with this wonderful feature.
• Because Layer Masks can be one of the tougher concepts of Photoshop to wrap your brain around, this will take two Meetups: Wednesday, January 8th, 2014 and Wednesday, February 12th, 2014. I strongly encourage you to sign up for and attend both Meetups to fully grasp how Layer Masks can benefit you.
• Those who RSVP are encouraged to pre-submit one hi-res JPG or TIFF file- send send your "problem" images, not your "best"! Although we'll probably only get to 6 or 7 of these files, we'll use them throughout both seminars to put what we've learned into practice. Please submit by Friday, 01/03/14, via my webpage upload ... Please send your file "un-enhanced" (no Photoshop work), prepped for approximately 8" x 12" @ 300ppi - No RAW files please ...
The cost to attend is $5 for each 90 minute Meetup, payable when you RSVP online - Please note: You will need to RSVP online for each Meetup separately.
A useful handout will be provided. Please note that in the interest of time, the focus will be on "Layer Masks", rather than other functions, tools, and concepts of Photoshop.
This low-cost workshop is designed primarily for those fairly new to Photoshop, but it is also a good "refresher" course in the basics for those with a bit more experience. As this presentation is in a “seminar” format (via a digital projector), bringing your laptop is NOT recommended, due to limited space and time (tablets OK). Questions encouraged - I'll provide bottled water - Let's have some fun!
RSVP early, as we need to limit this to 35 people - We should finish by 8:30 PM - See you there!

PS - If you have my Photoshop Book (also available as a downloadable PDF, as well as at the Meetup), you should bring it with you (rather than the provided notes), as we'll be working from sections within the book - and the pictures are in color in the book!
