Announcing a new Meetup for The Austin Beginners Photoshop Meetup Group!
What: 11th ABPM'Intro to Photoshop'
When: July 29,[masked]:00 PM
Where: La Madeleine French Bakery & Cafe 3418 North Lamar Blvd Austin, TX 78705 [masked]
We had a fantastic Meetup in June, so for those of you who were unable to make the last one ... let's do it again!
This will be geared for folks who have never used Photoshop before and are unfamiliar with the program, but ready, willing and able to learn.
The group will congregate at 6pm in the back room and have a member introduction.
I'll give an overview of Photoshop, how it works and what it can do along with some examples. We'll then start by learning the principles and fundamentals. I'll explain how to set up a workspace, import an image and then demonstrate a few of the most important tools. Each member will have a chance to practice using them on an image.
We'll work slowly as I want everyone to understand and become comfortable using the basic tools before moving on. Depending on time, we'll take a few more steps ahead.
If you have a laptop with PS installed, please bring it. There will be AC outlets. We're learning on a PC so if you have a MAC, I ask that you know how to operate it and be able to convert key functions.
I'll try to have a couple extra laptops available so those of you who don't have a copy of PS or portable laptop, can share.
I also suggest a paper and pen to take notes.
If you're hungry, the restaurant has a great selection of food, drinks and pastries. It's definitely no problem if you would like to eat while learning. This is a very relaxed atmosphere and there is absolutely no pressure. In fact, they would like for us to purchase something since they are providing us with their facilities.
It is very important that you please RSVP beforehand so I'll know how many will be attending and also let the restaurant know how many guests to expect.
I'm trying to adjust the day/date schedule to accommodate everyone. I hope Wednesday evening will be a more convenient time.
NOTE: It is not necessary to RSVP 'NO' if you're unable to attend.
There will be a charge of $12.00 per person, including guests.
Be sure to check out the comments and photos from our previous Meetups so you can see some of the happy-smiling members actively participating and working diligently to learn this program.
I created this group to teach people how to use this incredibly fantastic program. It will be a unique educational learning experience designed specifically for beginners. I have gained quite a bit of knowledge and insight working in the field with one of the most popular, powerful and professional photographic software programs ever created.
Many of you have expressed an interest and desire in learning the true impact of what Adobe Photoshop has to offer. Now is your chance to explore the endless possibilities of photo enhancement, restoration, modification, and manipulation.
Be sure to browse through the examples posted in the 'photos' section. Also check out some of the happy faces from past Photoshop Meetups!
If you can think it ... you can create it! With Photoshop ... the sky's the limit!
