Digital Darkroom 103: Layers and Masks

  • Nov 22, 2009 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I'm repeating a series of introductory level digital photo editing workshops. This would be relevant to anyone looking to get started in digital photo editing, or who would like to better understand the basic features of their photo editing software.

Workshop fee is $30. Payment is due when you RSVP.
Date: Sunday, 11/22/09
Time: 4 - 6 pm
Location: A small conference room at my Somerville office, near Porter Square

Software Demonstrated:
Photoshop CS3
Paint.net (Free Windows Software)

Computers are not available in the conference room, but the emphasis of this workshop is the concepts of digital image processing, not software training in specific applications. All participants will receive a detailed booklet of the information covered, and practice tutorials and files on a CD-R to try at home.

Workshop outline:

- Layer opacity and blending modes
- Nondestructive tone and color adjustment layers
- Nondestructive touch-up brushes
- Selection techniques
- Saving selections as Photoshop paths
- Layer masks
- Color modes and channels
- Black and white conversion
- Blending multiple bracketed exposures
- Photoshop Merge to HDR command
- Stitching panoramas
- Translucent watermarks

    It was a great class. He approached a lot of basics one needs to know to start off with Photoshop. We learned about layering, masking, saturation, selection techniques, and color modes. It was also a very personal class, so you could ask questions at any time during the presentation. I think it might have been more helpful to be able to access photoshop on my own computer during the presentation b/c I'm a hands on type person, but it might have slowed down the presentation too.
