Photo Retouching, Katrin Eismann

This fact filled session will take advantage of the latest features in Adobe Photoshop CS to correct exposure and color cast problems, remove dust and scratches, and rebuild the most damaged originals. You will learn to work with Photoshop image adjustment, empty, and neutral layers to invisibly restore and retouch both antique and contemporary photographs – easily, quickly, and invisibly. Top

On with the Masks, Katrin Eismann

Learn when and how to use layer and channel masks, layer sets, and clipping groups with confidence and panache. See how the pros pull masks that maintain hair and fine detail.
If you can imagine it – you can create it! Top.

Photoshop CS. To successfully complete the Russell Preston Brown book, your laptop
needs to have Photoshop 7.0 or CS up, running and ready to go.

Good stuff is to be passed out in class.

If you know how to fold and cut paper, then you are ready for class. All you need to bring to class are six digital images on your laptop computer that you want to include in your book. Please bring as large of an image as possible for best results. We will supply all the paper and binding materials, you supply the creativity.
