This 60+ minute webinar will be a "jam session" featuring key topics in image processing for night photography. You'll see live operation of Photoshop, LightRoom or other tools. What exactly we do will depend on your interests and votes. See this discussion ( to indicate what most interests you or add your comment below. We can't guarantee we'll cover exactly what you want, but we'll do our best!

This format is better than an online tutorial since you'll be able to ask questions and influence what we cover both before and during the webinar. As always, this event covers specific topics in Photoshop (PS), Photoshop Elements (PS), Adobe Premiere Elements (PE) and/or Lightroom(LR)

Topics include:

Workflow Tips Adobe Camera Raw (ACR = LR, PS, PSE) Tricks Turn down Milky Way noise and turn UP the wonder (PS, plugin) The "Dust" Technique for Creating Star Masks (PS) Three time saving features of CS6 Luminosity masks - targeting those adjustments. (PS) - going farther. Batching in Adobe Bridge IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS

You should have a decently fast internet connection! Dial-up won't work for audio or the data content.

We recommend that you use your computer microphone and speakers to talk and listen so you must at least have speakers. My recommendation is get a headset for this if you do not already have one. Specifically I suggest getting a Plantronics headset with a microphone and a USB connection ( Such headsets can be found at Best Buy for from $25 and up. USB headsets with microphone can be used with Skype and many other online games, and calling tools. They come in many styles include behind the head and over the head, single ear, open ear and closed. Most laptops include speakers and microphones but the audio quality of these is generally very poor. Some webcams also include built in microphones but generally the quality of those is poor.

Don't have a microphone? That's OK, too... you can interact through text chat and you can use your iPad (or Android) smart phone.

Joining a Webinar?

There will be yet ONE MORE step you'll have to take (we wish we could eliminate it, but at the moment we can't). After registration closes we will send you an email with instructions on how to get the webinar access code and any additional materials hints and tips to make your Webinar a success. IF you are not allowing emails, do not check, or have allowed our informative non-spammy emails to go into your SPAM bin, you may not get the information. So please: add "[masked]" and "[masked]" to you contact list. By the way, HotMail and AOL are notorious for dropping lots of valid email.
