Photoshop: Contrast and Color – K.I.S.S.!

  • March 12, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Photographic Arts Building - Balboa Park

Ever asked yourself, “What makes a good color print, and how do I use the basics of Photoshop to achieve my desired results?”  - If so, then this workshop is for you! Using the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Super Simple) method, we'll learn how to take well-exposed digital images and improve them, sometimes dramatically, with just a few key but critical functions.

Those who RSVP are encouraged to pre-submit one higher-res JPG or TIFF file - Although we'll probably only get to 6 or 7 of these files,  we'll use them throughout the seminar to put what we've learned into practice.  Please submit by Friday, 03/07/14, via my webpage upload ...  Please send your file "un-enhanced" (no Photoshop work), prepped for approximately 8" x 12" @ 300ppi, 8 bit - Please, please, please: YOUR FILE SHOULD BE NO LARGER THAN 30 MB!! No RAW files please  ...

The cost to attend is $5 for this 90 minute Meetup, payable when you RSVP online.  A useful handout will be provided. Please note that in the interest of time, the focus will be on working with Contrast and Color, rather than other mechanics, functions, and tools 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 40 people - We should finish by 8:30 PM - See you there!
