    Charrice, remember you can change your brush size by clicking and dragging.

    The best stylus I've found is Wacom's Bamboo. It's about $20 on Amazon.

    Love to see your work!

    Lots of great information.

    I learned some things about color that I didn't know to ask about. Sally is a great speaker. Tsafrir Melamed was good, learn a lot, but if he mumbled it was hard to understand with his accent if he wasn't talking to his mike. John Agcaolli needed his sidekick, had some great information but never finished each process for us to know the workflow. I liked the introduction of different programs out there like kuler. It was very worth coming to this meetup. The food was great.

    I worked very hard to put this meeting together and was pleased overall with the turnout. The vast majority of our group's members are appreciative and understanding. There were glitches in one of the speaker's presentations that were beyond my control, but it never ceases to amaze me when people post rude comments . . .

    I'd expected little more coverage on Color and I don't want to be rude but John wasn't required for a bit in this meetup.

    Learnt a few new things at the first part of the session. The photography session was pretty OK, but the last retouching session could've been completely avoided.

  • Ravi

    Very informative and useful.

    Like all of Sally's/ACSUG's meetups...a great experience and a valuable classroom.
    The tutorials on photography were also immensely valuable.

    This was my first meeting I have attended with this group. I really enjoyed the information shared on Color and it's use in Adobe products and photography. Thank you Sally and everyone who spoke for a great presentation, packed full of good information that I can apply right now.

    Could have foregone the photograph retouching in this instance (it was interesting but a little off topic?) and spent more time on color 'theory'. What colors go together and why, that is something with which I do stuggle. I must utilize Kuler more as this will provide palettes, which probably answers my previous comment :).

    Of course the raffle was AWESOME :).

    As always, thanks Sally, you are our hero. After my raffle win I promise to provide the food for the next event I attend ... Ian

    First two presentations (Color, RGB vs. CMYK; White balance) were very informative, given by knowledgeable, experienced presenters. Final personation was not at all useful, presenter appeared to have done little preparation (computer problems would have been uncovered) and did not appear very knowledgeable in PhotoShop (unable to answer basic questions like Saturation vs.. Vibrance). Did not appreciate his denigrating attitude towards technical details and the need to understand.

    April 7, 2012

  • Ken P.

    I learned a lot about color for print & phot. and a surprising amount about design & photoshop protips.

    I enjoyed the presentations and learned something new about CMYK and white balance. Thanks for organizing this event and it was great to see Sally and the group again.

    You're so sweet to say that. Very much appreciated. Thank you. Look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

  • Joe G.

    Thanks for setting up this meeting, Sally. I'm looking forward to it. It's a lot of work to put it all together. We know that you're not getting paid to do it either. Nor are you an employee of Adobe. Your efforts are appreciated.

    I think the new policy is fair and was clearly stated. 5 buck is nothing. I've attended meetings with a video group that charges $20 per meeting! Thanks for the good deal! ha ha

    See ya tomorrow night!
