Technical workshop programme

Monday evening 24th October

Next workshop – Creative use of layers and layer masks

Thanks to all those who expressed an interest in the workshop.  A slight majority of people favoured Monday 24th October so this is now confirmed.  Sorry to those who can’t manage this day.  It will be held as normal from 8.00-10.00 pm in the upstairs room of the Methodist Hall and the cost £3.50 through contactless payment to cover expenses.

The workshop will look at some of the basics of using layers and layer masks in photoshop to allow some more creative effects when post processing.  Ideally you will need either Photoshop CS or elements, but some other software may be able to give similar effects.  If you haven’t got a laptop then hopefully it will still be of use and you may be able to share with someone else.  As usual there will be short introduction with slides followed by plenty of time for discussion and practising the techniques on your own laptop

At the moment these are the members who were interested so it would help if you could just confirm that you still plan to come.  Others are of course also welcome.

See you there.
