The All-Day Photoshop Buffet!  

Pre-convention Program

Photoshop is like the Swiss Army Knife of digital photography, and I just want to introduce you to a few of the creative tools and capabilities you have at your fingertips, and perhaps not even be aware of it! While Photoshop Lightroom is great for basic image adjustments and speedy workflow, there are many tools that you need to go to Photoshop to use. Let’s cover the vital basics that will unleash your creativity and expand your vision!

Efficient use of Photoshop- shortcuts and actions and tool presets Layer Masking for full control of image blending, cutouts and adjustment layers Clipping Mask for speedy template population and control of layer effects Blend If- a little-known jewel that makes blending of images instant and so easy! Mixer brushes for painting images and smearing pixels just like paint. Be an Artist! Blending Modes for beautiful blends, textures and moody combinations. Image Cutouts made easy with Refine Edge and Select and Mask Video editing is easy with PS and simple animation of text too.

So much creativity is possible with PhotoshopCC and I am delighted to share some exciting techniques to help you improve your efficiency and creativity with images!
