Jenn,

Two attachements, both done with Gimp.

One was for my client as a gag. He got comped 2 pairs of tickets to the last two Grateful Dead shows in Chicago. He's a big Dead fan, and has a really good sense of humor.

The other is self explanatory.

I can cut away stuff. Make transparent backgrounds. Do some compositing.

One year I took a group photo from the NY Metropolitan Museum Of Art, and cut away the background so that the photo layer was of my in-laws, wife, and myself. I then pasted that over images of the Pyramids at Giza, Eiffel Tower, Space Needle, Mount Rushmore, etc.

Printed them up, put them in a photo album, and gave it to my in-laws as a gift of our family world tour.

The most I ever do is resize, crop and optimise for web. But I'd love to be able to do a little more without becoming a full on designer. After all, that's what designers are for and I'd rather hire them. So looking forward to this meetup!

Renea,


I am unfamiliar with Photoshop.

So anything you cover on photoshop will be good for me. I just want to get familiarized with the software. I really don't intend to use it.

I use Gimp.

And I can give a tour of Gimp at some point. Although learning Gimp isn't too hard. You can get most of what you need by reading 'Grocking the Gimp', which is freely downloadable.

Thanks for doing this presentation.

Everyone,

If we have enough interest in this event, we will try to live broadcast the Meetup but at the very least, we will record it.

I want to make sure that everyone walks away from the meeting with a little more knowledge than you had before, but do to that, I need to know what you know!

We are going to cover Photoshop, Illustrator and any other software group members want to demo or discuss. For example: Jenn uses Adobe Elements because Photoshop is too much. We can discuss the pros and cons of each piece of software and maybe learn something new!

So if you have any interest in learning more about the Adobe Creative Suite, reply to this email and share your knowledge level. Also, if you have a piece of software you love and want to demo, we will leave time at the end for Adobe-bashing.  :-)
I personally love Sketchbook by Autodesk and would LOVE it if someone wanted to talk about GIMP or Affinity Photo or Sketch for the Mac or Adobe XD!

The more info you share about your knowledge level, the better the Meetup will be!

 

Renea's Knowledge Level:
Been using Photoshop since before it had layers (if you dont know what layers are, please come to the meetup!)
20 years using Illustrator, Photoshop daily
Lack in-depth knowledge of Photoshop's 3D tools
Lack knowledge of Adobe's mobile design software (Photoshop Mix, Sketch, Draw, Fix, etc)
