What we're about

We are a group of avid amateur photographers who make prints and digital images. We meet to share images, for good fellowship, and to grow as photographers through programs, field trips and competitions. We’d love for you to join us, or just stop by for a visit.

All club meetings are held at the main conference room at the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Administration Building at 55 W Younger Ave, San Jose, 95110 (https://www.google.com/maps/place/75+W+Younger+Ave,+San+Jose,+CA+95110) on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 7:30pm.

Adjustment Layers in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements

Santa Clara County Sheriff's Adm. Conference Room

Bob Gager, a 14-year veteran of the Photoshop and Photoshop Elements Product Management team, will be presenting photo editing techniques using Photoshop’s adjustment layers, one of the most powerful tools available for post-processing photographs. Adjustment Layers are incredibly powerful, but if you’re new to Photoshop, adjustment layers can be overwhelming at first. This presentation will provide a quick introduction and specific examples of the more interesting Adjustment Layers that exist in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. A basic understanding of Layers and Layer Masks is helpful, but not required as those will be explained as well. We’d love to have you join us, learn some new Photoshop skills, and learn more about the Santa Clara Camera Club.
