The meetup was great. Alot of valuable information. Calibrating camera, monitor, printer paper... then went on to discuss catalog in lightroom, edit, then transfer to photoshop for additional editing.

Steve thanks for the lightroom & photoshop answers.

The meeting was informative and interesting. If I learn something useful I can use, which I did, then I consider the time well spent. I appreciate Steve's time and efforts to prepare and present the program. In contrast to a previous comment, it was my impression that Steve didn't add a new sky, but rather changed the existing colors using a series of color filters.
I really appreciated the tutorials and demos on Colormunki and printer profiles. I am a long-time customer with Red River and Steve motivated me to download and try their printer-paper profiles. [One observation... I think a few people in the audience were completely lost. Maybe a simple process flow diagram would have helped.]
Got some very good strategies to get past some stumbling blocks in Elements.
Excellent meeting. Well delivered.
What is the topic today...?
I plan to specifically discuss monitor and printer calibration. I will demonstrate the process of calibrating the monitor, creating and using printer profiles and how all of that fits together. Beyond that, I will highlight some of the newer or improved features in either ACR, Lightroom or PS CC.
Robert, I think you'll like Lightroom after you've become familiar with it. As I mentioned to Tom below I start out with LR and finish up in PS, not the best way, just the way I'm comfortable with. I'd love to learn how to speed up my post processing.

I have Lightroom but have never used it as I use photoshop. There is a lot to learn, gotta keep the mind active! Just need more time.
As far as I can tell, and I use both PS CS6 (not CC) and Lightroom 5.2, "content aware" capability is only available in Photoshop.
I believe content aware started with PS 4 (I missed that one) and PS 5, although it's gotten better and more useful in PS 6. IMHO, LOL.

I signed up for photoshop CC to become more familiar with its "content aware" capability. Question? Does Lightroom 5 support the same "content aware" stuff?
Looking forward to learning more about layer masks, specifically when used to recover detail in wind blown hair. Alan

For the October 25th meeting, I plan to demonstrate and show how to do monitor calibration and discuss the use of color profiles for printing both from Photoshop and Lightroom.
In addition, we will jump right into layers, masks and blending modes. We will discuss when to use layers and masks, how to create accurate masks in a variety of ways and demonstrate some uses for blending modes.
As always, bring your questions and if you have an image you'd like to have worked on, bring it on a jump drive.
Have a great month.

I'm hoping to learn about color management (calibration and profiling). I have a NEC MDSVSensor (which is an X-Rite i1Display 2) which I bought at the same time I got my wide-gamut NEC monitor. But after hearing stories of people screwing up their displays while attempting to calibrate their monitors, I lost my nerve to try it. I hope Steve can demo an actual calibration.
