NOTE: Please be considerate of the servers at IHOP: Don't change seats once you sit down. Get your orders in early so they're not slammed in the kitchen. Tip generously. They don't expect everyone to order food, but a good 80% of us should be having some kind of dinner.


With the ubiquity of cameras, photography is everywhere! If you'd like
to improve the looks of your photographs, post-processing is an
effective way to give your work the umph and sparkle that they are
missing. In this talk we'll cover the basics of darktable, a Free
Software application for processing raw photographs. There will be an
introduction to some photographic concepts and a tutorial covering the
basics of the must-use darktable modules.
