RPEG's focus is on photography and photo editing, but Meetup's focus is on getting people together face-to-face. Are you able to attend at least some of our meetings and tutorials? Do you sincerely plan to do so? If so, please continue!
Interested in photo editing in Photoshop. Only use just a few of the tools now and would like to use others. Do not know anything about Lightroom.
