Photoshop is so pervasive a term in our field that it has become a verb like “Google.” It is synonymous with Photo Editing. Join us on Feb 3 when NYUPS member John Ares will pick up where Jason's September Workflow session left off, and solely focus on image editing.
 
Regardless of what package you are currently using, whether it is iPHOTO, ACDSee, Paintshop Pro, Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperure, etc, the concepts are similar.
 
We will demonstrate two different approaches to editing:
 
• Using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Cataloging software versus
• Adobe Bridge Photo Browser, and Photoshop Elements editing
 
A brief look at the powerful tools in Photoshop CS4 will be demonstrated by Steve Edelstein.
 
You will learn:
• The difference between Cataloging and Browser software and Editors
 
• How Photoshop Lightroom performs RAW Conversion, and basic editing, streamlining the workflow
 
• How to perform basic edits in Photoshop such as exposure correction using Levels, cropping, color balance, spotting
 
• Intermediate techniques such as using Curves for more detailed exposure correction, and the Clone and Healing Tools for basic retouching and spotting of backscatter, etc.
