Camera to Computer to Print: the basic digital work flow Seder Burns
Interested in digital photography, but not sure what's involved? Join me for an overview of the whole process! I will show you what it takes to capture images with a digital camera, get them onto the computer, into the right program, and then print them out. I will demonstrate the whole workflow by taking pictures of some students, performing some basic image editing (and perhaps some head swapping!), and then making some prints. Top

An introduction to Digital Cameras Michael Sheras
During this 90 minute session, Canon Professional Markets Rep. Michael Sheras will explain the operation of Canon Powershot digital cameras with emphasis on simplicity and results. He will explain how to make a print directly from the camera to the Canon CP-200 printer. For the last 30 minutes and into the lunch hour, participants will be able to shoot their own pictures with provided Canon Powershot cameras and make prints on the Canon CP-200 printers (also provided). Everyone will be able to leave the session with prints of their own and a basic understanding of digital photography. Top

Optimizing photos for the Web with Image Ready - Don Werthmann
Did you know about Photoshop’s sibling rival, ImageReady? The two live in the same house but have very different ideas about what an image’s optimum file size should be. It’s been an issue in the Imaging family for years, now. Photoshop may know everything when it comes to preparing a high-resolution image for print, but the file size usually isn’t very desirable when it comes to electronic transmission. ImageReady has solutions. Come discover how these siblings problem-solve their way through the issue harmoniously, without giving up what they need to make your images sing. This workshop is designed to provide the skills needed for optimizing typically higher-resolution digital image files for print, into images for transmission via the Web, E-mail, or even multimedia presentations.Top
